Well the exterior is easy enough to change, the interior could be a little expensive. The boats handle rough water well

It will do much better than the fountain. I traded out of a 35 lightning with 575's for my first 36 Nor-Tech

We had Randy's boat at the Toronto PROA event and it did great. I have been in 3-5's on a number of occassions and the boat always flys very level.
