I saw that too Joey , and as far as rough, inconsistent water, I think any of the Great Lakes would send him home thinking LOTO was smooth.

I asked a simular question a few weeks back. It seems that weight is a big issue for the ride vs speed question. As for steps, they get my vote !

Speaking of "WEIGHT" ..... Did anyone catch the "Romeo Void" reunion last nite on VH1 ????


As far as the boats go .... it seems that JD has to "pay a bit more attention" to things then I do when it kicks up !!! At least thats what he says ..... I've been in his boat maybe once when it was just a little choppy and it was just AWESOME !!!!! You definately will have a "smoother" feel in a bit heavier boat when your crankin it up in the rough stuff .... but then again ... most guys with heavy boats are always tryin to lighten them up so with that said .....

Damn that chick from Romeovoid was XL !!!!!!!!!

why are you even putting baja in the same category as nortech.... or any performance boat for that matter? Look what happens as they hit barges..... they delaminate. You can definately tell that the resin didn't permeate completely through the cloth.

The barge permeated very well however.

Default 50 nortech

let me set the record straight. i love nortech's i'm actually looking at the 50' now, i'm just saying that no matter what size boat you have after the loto shootout last year i saw 2,000 boats all leave one area at about the same time and saw 6-7' waves. obviously there are ocean waves in storms that would be taller, but not more inconsistent. come down to the lake over memorial day or 4th of july or shootout and then tell me an inland lake harder to boat in. i hope i'm in the nortech by memorial day, but the baja 40 does ride very good. i know its not as high end believe me but still has great ride. i heard lasy year there were 3,000 boats in party cove on saturday of the 4th. and alot of them are 50' searays and cruisers
