I am a newbie to jet boats and i am looking into buying a fixer upper, basicaly a piece of crap but thats how my budget rolls...how will this hull ride? this boat seems to have a deep V compaired to others i've seen. for example my dads jet boat which is the same brand and some years newer than this boat is much lower or thinner if you like. my dads rides nice and does the choppy water ok.. will this deeper version be better or worse as far as rough riding? i think my dad may be a foot longer or so also
I have a 18 ft Tahiti whith the deep v it rides about like anyouther v but the bow tends to hunt on a hard shutdown so I try to get out of it kinda slow. I like the way it does it chop head on but from the side it gets pushed around some. I like my boat be its not more then a 75 or maybe 80 MPH hull but shutdown is a issue at those speeds.
