Question Best 28-34 w/Twins

i need oso's knowledge..........again.
im considering selling the 288 sunsation and going back to a twin engine boat.
something that can handle the water conditions at Loto better.
limitations are budget of course and the slip at loto is 12 X 28 so i cant have a 10 feet sticking out.

left coast board god has these 2 items advertised.
they just need to be bolted to each other

I don't know much about some of the boats listed, but I have seen (although not ridden in....yet ) VonBongo's gorgeous pantera at LOTO, and it seems to crush the waves with ease.
I'm sure the Cig would be the same way.

given just the above choices, I would personally pick the Pantera. I believe there is one around for sale with twins too.

Ok gotta give my opinion here.

How about a 32' Active Thunder. Great rough water boat . There are a couple of used ones for sale that are awsome. I know not on your list but alot of boat for the money. Below is a pic of mine.

The 28 Pantera with a single is a much better balanced boat than the twin. I've owned a Pantera 28 in both single and twin set ups. The twin just doesn't handle as nicely as the single.

From what I hear the Saber's are awesome, but I don't have have any personal experience with them.
hmmmmm , Vonbongo i really do need that ride!
thanks Too Old , i didnt know that.

budget is 50k-ish

Yeah it is, i must have missed that requirement. You might do better with a single engine at that price.
