Default 37 OL trips vs twins

LOOKING FOR SOME ADVICE...what are the handling characteristics with trips vs twins.. I heard some info, but source was not as reliable as to someone who might have been in a trip boat or someone from the OL factory.
Also heard twins likes a lil tab around 55-65mph only in a bravo boat due to diff. COG..
Anyone ever put any Arnesons on these hulls. Thanks Jeff

I dont know about triple 37's but I can tell you about triple 42's having been in two if that helps.

Ive been in a trip 525 42..Mike driving, Fred and a few others in the back..went through 5' at 70 mph and as we were coming in to the inlet..toughed 80.. It was a rough ride due to the layup..but none the less, you can't have it both ways with out a compromise. Very Nice boat. Jeff

boat seems too small for trips.. i've only been in ones with twins and for it's size it's a great running boat, hands down...

I agree.. a staggered set up would be my choice...who wants to buy three motors and drives..LOL

One big difference will be the resale value. Tripples are DOA.

I would convert it to twins..sell off all the motors and drives, and do it right..just curious as how the ride (mannerisms) was with trips...and if I can get the boat at the right price.

Did you see the 98 that was converted to twins, they did a great job.
