Nick, Just be aware though, unless you are just cruising at 10 -15 mph, most all cruisers ride like **** in the kind of water you boat in

I still say go for the Silverton

I'd say the Silverton, but would have reservations about the power. If you test drive it, take it out loaded like you'll be using it. 4 or 5 friends and a sh!tload of heavy gear, coolers will make a difference in the ride. You won't be thinking of how economical it is to run if you're loaded down and can't get her to plane. I also agree with Otis311. I've only been on a couple of cruisers but each time I was suprised at how they get pushed around and can pound in water that an offshore just cuts right through. They've got more weight, but they also have the big wide flat bottom...
