Default HELP!!! W/ New 36 Carrera

As you know I have a 36 spectre with a pair of 1500HPS....I also have a wife and a 4year old and a 1 year old.

Can't enjoy boating with the kids on the cat so I looking for an additional boat.

I'm looking into a 36 Carrera with Triple 2005 Merc 250's with 2 year warranties,a 36

Contential trailer also 2005.

I alwaya trust your opinions WHAT DO YOU THINK??????????

Ride is great ,... it's a big straight forward 36' with the trips (Yamaha) tops has been 73-74.... but with these boats you seem to spend all your time (esp. with the kids aboard) between 40 - 55 or so .... Knocks the chop down real good !

Come on Otto - just go to Typhoon and buy the 36! You have had over 1 year to make your decision

A 36ft will not be good for tubing and skiing.

Sorry, I'm not a big fan of narrow beam CCs.
They're fast, but that's it.
I guess its good if you're looking to do a bit of everything, but not too good if you're looking to do any of those things too seriously.
