Default How does a 34 run in 2-3 footers

I'm looking at a 34 Phantom and I was wondering how they ride in 2-3 footers?
Is it comparable to a 35 fountain or?

Sorry but I do not know about a 34 but a 39 loves it. And I will say that Will does build a great boat no matter what size. Good luck with your search.

No comparison! There is a reason why I built a brand new 34. I could have saved a few bucks by buying and older turd Fountain. ( No offense to all the Fountain guys .) but the Phantom is a true hot rod. Every boat has its limitations. I'd be happy to take you for a ride anytime. My phone is broke till thurs but after that feel free to call. 978 479 3636

I was out today on the Delaware River, 94F degrees ambient conditions, still ran 90 mph with 90 gallons, 91-92 at the end of the day. It was a good day. Pictures will be posted once I find that dam communication cable for the camera to computer,

Hey Smarty.Can I talk you and your girl to come up for a day and a night to come up this summer to take the boat for a lobsta roll. Don't expect me to wail on it as we have a race in Aug, but we'll go to a good spot.We got a spare room.

Brian,

I really appreciate the offer. It sounds like a plan, not sure when I can get there, but I will get there. Thank you.
