I'm still deciding on which used boat to buy (although I think I've narrowed it a bit) and I need opinions on hull type. I want a performer, but I also want something that will put my wife at ease when it gets choppy (rules out flat-bottoms). I'm talking Parker (or Havasu) choppy. I want something that's safe for the wife and kids, pull 'em around on the skis/tube and handle safely. But I also want something that I can unload (kids and wife) and take a buddy out late in the day (or early in the morning) and have some fun.
Is it fair to say that something like a gullwing will handle the chop better than something like a Bahner semi v? I'm only really interested in a 18 or 19' jet. I've been looking over 19' open bow gullwings, Bahners, and similar. Thoughts or experiences? Thanks.
