    Cool 19ft Daytona Vs. 18ft 6inch Sunkiss performer Gullwing

    Just wanted some opinions on what haul to go with.

    The motor will be 650 plus horse and I plan on get her over 100mph. Please no trash talk. Only serious comments and advise. I have both of these at my finger tips and am having a really hard time deciding.

    Throw me your choice and why......

    This was the same dilemma I had before I had my hull made For the ride personally Daytona for the speed Horse power to horse power the CP both good hulls Daytona is tighter in the cockpit area but it was the ride factor for me your not going a hundred MPH every where you go so the look factor, I had a Crusader tunnel and like the look of the boat but cant beat the looks of the Daytona they just look fast and sleek sitting in the water,The cp is fast cant take that away from them and they work well but like all boats they have a hook factor more than the Daytonas do IMO, both good Hulls If your going to race 300-600 feet and have fun and be quick CP if you wanna go over 600 feet and be scared shitless Daytona, again IMO

    Sounds like speed is your ultimate goal, go with the Daytona. Be sure to get the one you like because your going to be spending your kids college fund on it. I just bought a TX and already getting parts to do a big motor. It's a disease.

    There are lots of variables between the two and you need to compare apples to apples ...example ...
    Different build materials , different layup weights , rounded ,flat and delta keels, std intakes or Lopro ? Setback pumps or std location. ,etc,etc ..
    two comparable builds should run damn close with maybe the Gullwing being a little quicker I would think ? But I have heard lots of story's of the Wingers spinning out on shutdown at speed ..
    cant say how my boat( 19' Liberator that is basicly a Daytona splash ) is gonna act now with all the mods I've done to it but I've lost power at speed and it's never acted squirrley
    I'd say I've got some experience with one.
