Default Thanks for the heads up,,,

Just curious,, why don't you like the #2's, is it because of the TRS foundations? KatDriver,,,what is your opinion on the night driveability?

#2's Parts are getting impossible to find and they are not very strong. I would go with a straight TRS before I would go with a #2.

I think the Chris would be ok at night. I have never driven it at night at LOTO. I generally will not drive on LOTO at night. To many dumb asses running around without lights and other things.

Default You are correct

How sad, but how true it is about the night driving at the LOTO...

I have a 36 skater which I can run in the low 30s going across a sloppy 2-3 ft chop and not get wet. It is a lot smoother when I go faster. The only time I have had tunnel sneeze is having to slow down going through an inlet where the tide was going against the wind and you were getting some nasty walls of 4-5s which I didn't have the ---- to try and run on top of. But even in that the tunnel sneeze was a spray and not a drenching. I would think with the 36 awesome you would have no problem at all but I am not familiar with how that cat handles. Go for a ride and see.

Good Luck

Default Really too much money for me

At this point in time I want to try and stay in the 75K range,, really not more than 95K. Which I am thankful for the amount of options that gives me.. There are quite a few used nice V hulls in the 38 foot range to choose from and with the help from the board it looks like there are quite a few cats out there in my price range also.
