Are CC the future?

No more than wind or solar power was the future when they were introduced 30 years ago.

Perfomance boats all the way. Love the sound, the ride, and nothing like laying out on the pad to catch some rays. But if you're in Fl. going thru no wake zones all day, then they are worthless. To get anywhere, you're plowing creating wake. So CC's have their place, even if you don't fish. Wish I could afford to have one of each.

I have been reading through this thread again, and I think there is a wide casam here. The problem with performance boating is it chews people up and spiths them out. You throw enough rods, you puke enough tranys, you look at enough bloody marys spilled on your carpet, refrigerator doors falling off, microwaves exploding, a boat full of freon because the A/C took a crap again and you start thinking "this is crap, and I'm done". I know I don't want a fishing boat, but right now it's the best alternative. I think this may be an evolutionary step towards the real future of performance boating.

Not particularly, GL, but there are a bunch of them that can run 12 to 20 mph above that—and even faster.

Definitely not anywhere near as fast as your ride.

There's room for both...having been boatless coming up on three summers now, you really appreciate being on the water in anything.

Of course you are correct. I can take a old chalky blue run about out and drive the chit out of it and have a good time. I even like the pontoon boat ride, but I just don't get all the folks that put these CC boats even in the same sentence as a go fast. But I am all about anything that takes you out in the water and returns you to the dock.
