That's a trick question coming from you since you know the answer. My father said "asking a question you know the answer to is the best question to ask". cb

Default Wow- Great thread

You can tell the different schools of thought here: The 41+ ft Deep V crowd ( w/ and w/o steps) and the Cat crowd.

I come from the Automotive World where Front Wheel Drive took over in the 1980's and now 20 years later you see Rear Wheel Drive making a comeback.

I will refer everyone to Poowerboat magazine a couple issues back where they had about ten boats that did 100+mph. Now half of them were river boats- smaller single engine jobs. But, there were two big deep V's a Donzi 38ZR and a Cig Top Gun. Neither of them had wild power, both had natural aspirated motors around 750 hp each.

I also saw a Nortech 36 Cat w/ twin 750's that did 117+ at a boat show this fall. All of these boats are around $ 400 k, and I think are capable of running hard in big seas. Let's face it, who is going to run 100+ in 5-6 footers for pleasure? Are you really going to put yourself and friends/family in that kind of danger?

I hope not, I would rather not read about an OSO'er stuffing and taking others with him/her.

The ever wise CB has spoken and it goes back to the spanning tool equation. And yes his boat will run in any conditions and quite fast at that. Merry Christmas Craig hope to see you soon.
