Um, we took some panals off? I think it was me that removed a panal or two.... Just looking!!! LOL!!!

Loved the boat.... but I also wonder how the hinges and mechanicals of the swing up doors will last after years of rough water abuse.

I've been on the 25, 28, and 32 Sunsation and love the design, quality, etc. They definately are smaller than the competitior's boats (which is my biggest complaint), when you put them side by side, but they will run in some big water without problems. A friend of mine ran a 32' in the Michigan area for a Poker Run and ended up in some really snotty weather and only some huge Apaches passed him. That's a pretty good testiment to the way they run. Especially considering the 32' Sunsation is about the size of a 28' Pantera, Fountain, etc. I've personally run a 25' Sunsation (which seemed smaller than my 20' Formula) in weather that I shouldn't have been out in and it went like a bat out of hell - smoothly.

BJM This is the only way spending a hard earn buck to invest in our boat, your a partner in the Sunsation owners family of performance boats.I have been affiliated with other Performance builders and you really get to know the strength and weaknesses of the manufacturers.
