Default Top Gun vs. 38zx

I know two different ships here but just was curious what everyones pros and cons were. Not going to be able to afford the T/S in these models unless the right deal runs along.

A 8 ft. beam vs. 9'2

The love the idea of the speed and ride of the cigs. And of course the legendary name, but the room on a bad weather day, accomadations of the donzi make it appealing.

Thanks again.

True it may not run big water quite as well as a TG but they certainly arent to far behind. I have never had any problems in Erie water. They are heavy but still run respectable numers, I see 80+ with 525SC's. Its got a huge cabin with plenty of room and in my opinion is the best looking boat ever built.

The ZR Comp is a fine rough water boat. I think that is the best looking boat personally.

Keep it coming guys. A good friend of mine is also wanting a 38zx coming out of a fountain 35ex. He loves the amenities of my Black Thunders but doesnt want that big of a boat. All advice would be great.

GlassDave, Beautiful machine


Thanks Guys
