I am looking at a 2005 Eliminator Eagle 236 XP MCOB. It has a 496 and less than 100 hours.

Can't find a lot of information on these boats? Not Eliminator but the 236 Eagle XP.

Anyone care to share experiences? How does it ride in rougher water? What speeds are to be expected with the 496?

I boat on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs - basically a damned up river that flooded a valley - Deep, long and narrow. Bathtub water similar to Lake of the Ozarks on a holiday weekend but maybe not that rough.
