Back in the old days of OSO, the count for narrow w/ sparse cabin would have been at least 5+ to 1 over a cruiser. No wonder things seem a little bland around here now days

I prefer the wider beam and a more curvy outside,which usually makes for better headroom for overnighting. I also prefer a integrated swim platform, but ya know, different strokes for different folks.

Give me more room to party, the fun is in tweaking the boat. Not actually going 1.3 mph faster.

Exactly. I just swiched from the full cabin in the old Top Gun, to the Cover girl (not the extended one) cabin in the new one. The boat rides awesome and is faster. I still have a head for the ladies just in case. It has room for towels, pillows, bags, and still has the built in self draining cooler, which is key.
