Default Force Offshore 26'?

Looking at early 2000s models and wanting to know how they ride and handle. Good quality? Considering this and HTM and trying to do as much homework as possible. Thx.

if i was looking for a mid twenty-ish foot west coast style cat that would probably top my list. I have had one or two in my shop (they are rare around here) and was really impressed with the quality of the boat. I really liked the layout it appeared to be very well layed up (lamination quality). My customer that owned it has owned several (all brand new builds) and spoke very hughly of the brand and this was someone that could have purchased literally ANY boat he wanted.

I appreciate the info, fellas. I'm also learning these boats are much heavier than other cats the same size and it takes more power to get them moving? Thx.

might not be a bad thing, I'm not a fan of light layup boats just for the sake of speed. That is one of the things i noticed about the 26 i had in my other shop, seemed to be very well layed up. I did a custom hatch for this one about eight or ten years ago..
