Zodiac MK2 4.2 vs Quicksliver HD 3.80
Hello, I own a quicksilver HD 3.80 (2006 make) with a 2 stroke 25hp mercury outboard. My sib is for sale and I got a call from someone wanting to trade his Zodiac futura MK2 4.2 (2008) make with a 2 stroke 40hp outboard. I have not seen the zodiac up close but from the fotos it looks in mint condition (as mine is too :-). The money the guy is asking is more than fair(almost a bargain), a little too much for my budget but I can afford it. The main question is "Does it worth it?" Saling a sib and buying a much more expensive sib? My main concern is the behavior in choppy waters. Will the zodiac be a much better ride than the quicksilver? I know it is going to be a much faster one but what about comfort? Over the years I have come to love the advantages of the sib (moving around on ground and water without thinking about it) but on the other hand I start to get a little bit tired of the bouncing around on the choppy sea. What do you think?
Let me tell you that my sib runs on a tiller with no seats and the zodiac has streering wheel and seats.
