View Full Version : Ride in Chop

06-19-2003, 09:46 PM
I'm new to inboards, having owned outboards and I/Os in the past, some deep V's and some modified V hulls. How does the Outback hull compare to other inboards? I've heard that Mastercrafts are the roughest, but have made improvements in ride in recent years.

Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

I know that the new Outback, the '03, has a deeper keel to help the ride. I've had mine out in some rough water and it bounces pretty good, but not as much as some boats I've ridden in.

Sorry, I should have made myself more clear...for cruising (not skiing) how does the Outback cut through chop compared to other makes/models of inboards (please don't compare to outboards or I/Os)

Thought the models with the flattest wake also had the worst ride in chop?

Just curious about others take on this is....
