Default Skater 388 vs 40

That video of Gatorone in Pure Platinum really gets the adrenaline pumping. Last winter I stopped by the Skater factory to see what was going on and have not stopped thinking about the 40 Skater. Is there a significant difference between these 2 hulls and their rough water capabilities. Is the 388 an extended version of the 368 or an entirely different hull.

That is correct But the 40SS is not as wide and a different mold. 11'6 beam
40 SS best in rough water less speed per HP- weight ratio
40 Classic less rough than a SS but depending on the lay up close in speed HP-weight ratio 10'11 beam
38.8 Faster with same HP_weight ratio but less rough handling..also turns the courners faster. 11' beam

That would make the 40ss 12 feet wide?
