Default Outerlimits 42 and/or GTX

Now I知 not trying to start anything here. Honestly, no BS, I really want to know how they run in Rough Water. As I said, no BS. I've read enough and haven稚 had the chance to ride in one. So far NOTHING has compared to a Straight Vee in a 4-6ft sea. Now I知 not talking about riding in the troughs, any boat can do that. I知 talking about seriously running into a 4-6ft sea in ROUGH conditions. How does the boat run? Does it SLAM like I know the 37 did, because I owned one...or does it REALLY run as well as people say, or is this just bs.. Calm Water running isn't why I run, so I知 honestly curious...Just a thought. And please refrain from 蘇ow good Outerlimits look comments and the 素it and finish misc.

Thanks

I always enjoy spending race day on No Discipline a 42 Outerlimits with twin 650s. Pete is our official pace boat for all of the offshore racing in Point Pleasant NJ. www.njoffshore.com I can honestly say that this is the most incredible handling boats I have ever ridden in.

On the 1 foot bay chop it seems to lift higher and higher in the rear as it goes faster. It actually feels like a small cat packed with air. At full tilt, 94 trimming the drives down grabs more bite and you can feel the kick as the boat goes faster.

In the ocean, the extra 5 feet over the 37 allows it to eat up waves. For the last few years, the May race has been run in 8 to 10 ft seas, just ask DJD. While pacing the starts and running after the race as high speed this boat would fly and you would wait for a hard impact that would just never occur.

If I had a half mil to piss away- I mean invest on such a craft, it would be an Outerlimits without even looking elsewhere. Go for it and take me for a ride sometime.

You caught me. I was going to say how cool it was to relax and watch a DVD on the flat screen tv with the surround sound and how 850 Sterlings will grace the engine room this summer. But I thought I might get boring. So I'll just post a photo.
