I'm a big fan of the Y2K Superboat and also the Rage/Activator. I like simplistic, uncluttered hot rods.

How would you compare the pluses and minuses of these two? I usually only see Superboats with 525 power or smaller. Are there any with power in the 700-800hp range and what do they run?

Because in that size there are many other choices that are better. Even a Formula 292 Fastech would be better in my book. You haven't answered the question about what your budget range is. Any preference to single vs. twin? If money is not too much of a deal, Dan's suggestion of the new Outerlimits SV29 is something to look into. Get one with Ilmor power though

Could you explain how a pad makes for a softer landing?

Find yourself an old school Team Warlock 28 "World Class Offshore" from about 1987 to about 1994-1995. 24 Degree deadrise and divinycell core. You would be out the door for $30k or less and have a great rough water boat. Try and find a single if you can, they came both twins and single.

Pantera, Powerplay, Saber, Active Thunder, Activator, Laveycraft, Joker, Sutphen are all worth looking at. Pick your particular flavor, most important is to have what you like and want.
