Loyalty in worth having even in my son!!!! Seriously, to my surprise, Josh preferred the Prime to Farfetched. I thought he would love the 'first serious boat' we owned! He feels the definite crashes which you get with Farfetched from time to time were siginificantly softened in the Prime. In the Prime you can sit down on the jockeys in the rough - you could not do that with Farfetched if you ever wanted to father children again!!!! I would welcome comments from people who drove / went out in Prime - both positive and negative!
It is my view the Prime is a bit slower, a bit twichier (slighlty shorter hull), but a softer ride.
Dag Pike says stepped hulls work only above 50k and are a drag below that. I think he may be right in all out speed, but in ride he seems wrong.
