How about some comments on build quality. Any known failures one should look for in a 94' to 97' 31ss? It reads as though everyone had a good experience with there Sonic.

I've been told there has never been a hull failure! Its built like a battle ship. never going to be the fastest but it sure rides nice...

Ride quality is what I want first. HP can always be added.

I think one thing that helps is the three piece hull.

All the high density foam injected between your
inner and outer hull.

I would think not only act's as floation in the event
of hull damage, but also as a stiffner, and an
absorber of the beatings boats take.

Diffently helps for a quite ride.

just my .02 cents

Nice pic. Just one question. Why don't I see those throttles all the way north?????

I just didn't want to make him feel tooo bad! His boat is at quite a HP disadvantage...
Let's just say that the Pantera easily smokes his ride...
