Do you worry about coming off the throttle when you are coming out of the water in big waves with the NXT package

Don't mean to hijack your thread but how do you think the 42' compares to the 388 as far as the ride goes?
Thanks Steve

Would you be willing to sell the whole package and start fresh - boat, motors, drives, all.

The 388 hustler statrts to chime walk around 96 on up. Were the fountain is smooth as glass at the 105 mark just begging for more power. But don't get me wrong my 388 was alot of fun just not made to go over 100mph.
