Sigh...

First of all, this is a Poker Run and Rally folder. You need to post this in the General Discussion folder.

Next, ALL CAPS means that you are shouting. Use lower case.

We were all newbees once (a long time ago).

I have a 31 Sonic and love it. Great boat. But you would be doing an injustice to yourself if you don't check out Active Tunder. I know nothing about Sensation.

Welcome to the board.

I have a 32' Active Thunder. Love it alot. I have been in and driven both the 32' Sunsation and 31' Sonic. Both great boats. It just depends on what your looking for.

Sunsation is fast. Fastest of the 3 with equal power in relativley smooth water. Great styling. Smallest of the 3. (32' includes the swimplatform) Handles very well.

Sonic is a very well built boat. Good sized cabin and classic styling.
Handles very well.


The AT is the one I know best. Its the biggest of the 3. A true 32'. It's also the best in the rough water. It will run away from the other 2 when the water gets bigs. Rigging is top notch.

It all depends on your boating style. If your only going to be in inland lakes (not Great Lakes) or small bays then the Sunsation would be a good choice. Fast, fun.

If you gong to be doing any big water running like I do (Great Lakes and coastal Florida waters) I would definately go with the AT. Fast and durrable and great in the rough stuff.(Runs really well in the smooth water as well). Biggest boat with most cabin space. I guess you'd say I am a little biased here, but in all honesty you wouldn't go wrong with any of these fines machines.
