    Default gullwing IMO

    I think the gullwing is the best all around quick and safe river boat. Just out of curiosity what hulls does GS marine make?? Mike or Greg if your lurking? I know the socal 19, TPR, and i wasnt sure if you had a gullwing or not?
    Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

    Yep, and the most room.
    19 daytona will be more stable-safer then a 19 Gullwing but the gullwing has more leg-interior room.

    Ok now the 21 will take way more HP to run in the 80-90 range
    and I no we are talkin a 19 -winger vs a 21 wich is 2' longer and that does make a dif for sure..
    I no size does matters like a 18-21 big dif..but I was also told all kinds of ride differnces
    and so on
    So lets get a little more in depth with this post..If I have to put in my own power on this boat I fig my HP will be around at least 600 ( BBC)so now what boat will do the trick for good ride and run a good number like 80-90,s
    I dont think I could get a 21 with 600 HP to run a good number???? what like 60-70mph???

    I,m not hearing any good thoughts on a tunnel so far why??

    He said hot boat... Calling a 21ft boat a hot boat is like calling a 4 door sedan a race car

    my 21 with 450 hp and a 100 shot NOS would run 77 at 3500 ft elevation.
    I'm sure at the river it would have run in the 80's.

    and those 21 decks are nice HOT BOATS

    If you want my non biased opinion, the 19' GW. With 600hp you would be in the mid to higher 80's. You can fit 4-5 people, cooler and all the ski gear. But, any boat that starts and floats.
