Default 36' Gladiator or 37' GTX ???

I am currently not in the market for either of these boats, but I am just curious about the Cigarette 36' Gladiator and the Outerlimits 37' GTX. I like them because they are very different and I really think that a sit-down V-bottom is a cool concept.
I was just wondering your ideas /comparisons of these 2 boats specifically. Hopefully, oneday, I could really be trying to make this decision!! Let's get past the idea of no cabin, (although a cabin would be beneficial) Out here is Sothern California, I would go to Catalina or do some lake boating on Lake Havasu. In Catalina, I would just spend the night over there in one of the hotels. In Havasu, it's too friggin hot to be in a cabin (unless NORT has his A/C running in his Formula)
I like to go out here in the Pacific and lake boating in Havasu, so for me, a cabin isn't a "must" have. Let's hear some thoughts...

Hey Semper Fi, I asked the same question a few months back and got quite a few responses, do a search and read the posts..as for me each has its good and bad but if cost were no option I would take the O/L and it does have a small cabin and knowing how O/L does things you could probably get it with a/c!...Matt

Too Old,
The Donzi is nice, but it doesn't exactly "float my boat" so to speak.

Of course my answer is a little biased, but with the OL your getting what you pay for and that 37GTX is the same proven hull as the original OL 37. Not to mention resale value, for when you decide to move up to the 42 GTX or 47 GTX.

compared to the Donzi and OL the Cig looks dated. I am really getting fond of the 1/4 canopie look

Dude, it's no choice. Outerlimits of you have the bucks and don't mind parting with them.

Go for at least 600SCs and #5s so you can run with the rest of the big dogs. If you can't buy the right power, buy the Cig.
