    Paul,

    I have heard great things about the JC Tritoons.

    A friend of mine bought one of those ones off of Ebay. I think it is called an Evolution. It is actually pretty cool. They run somthing like 1000.00 a foot. His even has some sick looking flame job.

    Good luck.

    Bennington for luxury and comfort. I have a 350 IO and can get about 45 or so in it. Playcraft and JC are faster but not the same luxury of Bennington. Regardless of what you get make sure it is a Tri-Toon. I have the same model as Shadow...the 2575RFSi which has the two recliner seats up front. Can't keep people out of them....lol Handles Mohave water with no problem and can turn on a dime. Purposely have taken it out in rougher water to see how it handles and it isn't a problem.

    PM me with any ?'s you might have and I will try to answer them for you

    Good quality product.....You are welcome to check mine out as I have it in Bullhead. Will be out on the water early tomorrow.

    JC is NOT faster! Ours tops out at 33-35 loaded, however it rides quite well in any water conditions. With that in mind for the UMTENTH time, we bought a pontoon not go fast boat.....

    For what opinions are worth, Shop Shop Shop and look at the overall build quality.

    The JC has virtually no wood above the floor. All the bases are like ABS plastic and stainless.

    Bennington has much better storage than Playcraft and JC

    Playcraft is faster than both ( same 350mag power ) and you can design the interior layout.

    Good luck.

    That is funny. We've had 2 JC tritoons and they are really well made. We were very happy with both and if I wasn't trailering I would buy another.

    Check out their website and be sure to review the hull page where they compare the hull/deck to the comp. Bennington and Playcraft look nice too. I think those 3 are the key players.
