Actually that holds so true..even Don Aronow did despite having a Deep V 41 mold that took on wind by another company.

I expected that! The question was handling in slop and rollers, not speed ability in the rough. I've been in a couple 28 cats, 46 Skater, 33 Eliminator. I always wanted to check out a Nor-Tech but haven't been down that route. I will give it to the Skater, the 46 was a nice ride at 120 MPH. I like a V, to each is their own like I stated. Not to say I couldn't be convinced otherwise. If I was debating between specific boats, take them both out in the same conditions & make your decision, assuming other aspects of the boats are fairly equal.

Maybe in ocean rollers but not in Great Lakes 3-4s. Unless you got a little dyslexic there?
