I think some on the board have an unclear idea of what defines "handling rough water."

If you want to bash "through" the rough stuff and go slower (like a barge). Buy an old school vee, there is nothing wrong with that

If you want to ride on top of the rough stuff and still carry fast speeds, the old school designs won't get you there. Sorry, it's the facts, I've owned both...."yeah but, yeah but, yeah but", SORRY it's the facts

Anyone who thinks the new designs, stepped, non stepped, new material, whatever, can't handle big water are mistaken.

I agree, taking Outerlimits out of this conversation, (because there is no comparison) a perfect example would be the 38 top gun. The 38 TS stepped boat is 1000 times the boat that it's non stepped sisters are in rough water and calm. It finally rides close to level instead of that traditional bow up look.

Definitely was not directed at you and your rig. 90+ in that weight of boat is SOLID. You know what rough water is though. When your girl is screaming in your ear about how long it will be before ya get any if you don't slow down. Or when the cooler keeps staring you in the face with every drop, docklines hitting you on the sholder, etc Ballpark for rough (to me), 6+, I MEAN A TRUE 6+

Now there is water that no one should be in. I just hit the ditch and find a good cocktail those days.

That is exactly correct. Everytime I leave the water in my T/S, I am level the whole flight. My old 92 wanted a little more angle.

They are all kick ass. Old, new, prototype, sweet.
