Does that ever end??? haha. Ive just never had a tunnel hull before nor have I ever even sat in one. Top speed means nothing to me and doing 85 mph wont happen anyway with the kids on board so I am thinking I could prop it for an easy hole shot and have it still work for tubing etc but I may be wrong. The boat will strictly get used on smaller lakes. What are the tunnel hulls like to load and unload from the trailer? Any more difficult than a V hull?
Sounds like you need about a 30 foot center console. 9 people is a bus load.
