No need to respond. Anyone who has been in a Sut in some snot knows what it can do. No sense arguing with the other pros.

Makes for some good reading though.

My 26 does pretty well in the rough but the Ocean pacer was definately better IMO

The out boards put the weight way far back so it slaps more.

Thanks Brad !..... you witnessed why ya need at least 30 feet & twins on the ocean.
I actually wish I could have seen how it looked from another boat.

I have heard the stories of the " boxer " 26' boat with big power running alongside a "36 Cig. with blower motors" at 90 mph in BIG water on the south shore and kicking it's butt.
so... it can do it! , but if anyone blew a drive or any other failure for that matter , out there the other day with a single I/O ....well, good luck setting a anchor till sea tow shows up!

I am putting Konrad Drives on this winter...THEN it will be a monster!

lets hook up soon out there........

Good point letterrip.
I hear guys all the time talking about how well thier boat handles the rough stuff and They never think about the what ifs!
I mean its always a possibility you will get stranded out there. After all these are just mechanical things with mechanical limits.

You cant really plan for it, but at least have a basic Idea of what you would do to handle things if it were to happen.

It can get pretty nasty in a hurry out there if your bobbing around with no power.
