I got a ride on "Shake And Bake" Saturday afternoon. I've driven a 288, 32 Dominator, rode in a 32 SS, driven an F-4, and now had a ride in what I believe is the best Sunsation yet. This new 36 is a home run. Boat's acceleration was incredible and it ate the LOTO snot up. We saw 90 a couple different times going to the dam and back from Franky And Louie's. Wayne just didn't get good enough water to open it up any more than that. Thanks to Wayne and Chris from Sunsation and the proud new owners Jared and Heather for allowing me to ride on one of the baddest boats around!

I second that. It didn't take long to do the round trip to the dam and back. That boat is awesome with the 700s. Acceleration is more like a jet ski than a boat.

Thanks to everyone for the ride.

Im with you LAriveratt.........but thats prolly why we are in SSR's. The beautiful thing is, there's a market for that look and Hats of to Wayne and Joe for "tossing their stones in the wheel barrel" and introducing this new offering......and at a time when boat manufacturer's have been reeling due to the recession!! If I were to set up a 36' it would have to look very similar to my 32 SSR but with 700's +NXT6 SSM Drives..........Herrings......???MPH.

I haven't had the opportunity to see an XRT in person just yet just going by the pics... not sure on the MPH of the 36 700's etc... but it'd haul the mail pretty damn good, and if you paint it like your ssr

Thanks again Chris. We will be there for the shootout. Not sure if Wayne is planning to run in it or not. If so and you want to ride with us and raft up to watch the boats run you are more than welcome.

I have the one in PA. I ordered it from scratch through Mark’s Truck and Boat Center after looking at yours at the Western New York Fun Run in 2007. I was there the day your boat arrived.
