Angry Help!!! the wife wants a cruiser

I need info! My wife is now thinking cruisers and I am thinking divorce! I need a performance type cruiser such as Powerquest. Has anyone had any experience with the 29' Envision. I understand this is a copy of the Pachanga hull. What about Mach 1's 29', it has a windshield right. I can't have anything with a faring. Please help I don't want to "go slow all the time".

Sea Ray SS series-the 31 has a great hull and has most of the ameneties. The 37 is really sweet, but slower. Of course some BIG power will get both of them flying

You may consider staying away from the Mach 1. Saw some at the boat show a few years ago and subsequently saw them on the river. They fell apart. Just my opinion.

Come on now.... we're missing the obvious solution. Get a new wife (one that likes OUR kind of boating).

If she just won't bend on the cruiser idea, meet her half way.
I'd agree on the Black Thunder- tremendous cabin and efficient hull. If you have to have more beam, you can't beat the Formula 40SS or 37SS. Pretty quick boats with HP500 power for their size- they use the Fas3Tec hull.
