No, no, no! I'll take the 38 over the 28. I've been watching this thread longer and mom said I could!

Liquid, if you're doing 68-69 on a 24 footer in "real" 3-4 sea's like I know 3-4 sea's (some tend to exaggerate on here ), then my hats off to you and that 24. My personal experience and witnessing leads me think otherwise. Perhaps it's our "sea's" definition. Damn, I might have been in 5-7's!... But if you're right, I think I'll buy back down to the Baja 24. They're much cheaper on gas and easier to tow...

FlyinBrian, where do you run your 25 at in central Ohio? We have a 252 Boss here in our club (custom motor maybe 80mph). Didn't see much of him last year but I'll see a lot this year...

Vype, they all bounce and they all walk. Just get in a trough with left or right sea's and some speed. Even a 34. It just depends on which snap shot in time we choose to recall, or quote an obvious Donzi fan who happens to like Pantera's as well. I bet I could sight them and others, walk and bounce a little if that's what I was really looking for...

mlitefan, I don't know what 500+ would do, but I suspect high 70's or definitely over 80 at 550+, considering a single HP500 will push it to 73-76 (each boat being a tad different).
BTW, how was the fishing trip? Or have you gone yet? You should get onboard with our 20 July rendezvous with the RPBA if you haven't already...See ya at Kerr....

You can find 3 footers on Lake Texoma on a calm day, and if you don't even know the difference between a 252 or a 25 then and probably never driven a 25 then why are you debating this thread????????????, Or mabye my balls are to big when I'm driving,I never said it was a smooth ride, I would not have ridden in it , only if I'm in control more air the better!!!!!! . At almost the same weight and trailer length how would one be easier to tow, and it's hard to believe that a 24 would get better gas milage, but I always say if your worried about the gas leave yor boat in the garage. Heres a good 25 air pic

btw, I was not favoring either boat ( I would consider the 288) I just feel more comfortable with MORE freeboard when going high speeds in sloppy water . Actual running surface is 27' without the swim platform, not that it matters just wondering about your knowledge. www.sunsationboats.com

Thumbs up

I think most all of the OSO guys are staying at the Cliffs Resort, I'm not sure if they take pets or not, they have condos also, or if you overnight in your boat you could probably get a slip for the weekend, they have very nice clean showers

I looked at the Sunsation 288- been to the factory too- VERY nice boat with a lot of care in its construction. Between those two choices of mfgs, it would win hands down in my book.
I wound up with a 28' Active Thunder and love it- I wanted twin SBC's, and the freeboard of the AT is incredible.
Check out their website- there are a couple of boats in the class of what you are looking for including a 28' AT with a 500HP EFI and a 252 Baja (502 EFI Mag).

I like the Outlaw better...It has more of an Offshore look to it.
Don't get me wrong on the Sunsation but the Outlaw is more of a traditional offshore style boat.

Or you could buy an A/T and receive the brain wash option for free!
