Dubrus. I`ve got 2 boats. A 16 yr old slightly tired old Osprey with a suzuki dt 140 and a well looked after 9 yr old adventure 560 with a merc 125 on. When i first tried out the 560 it was a calm day and the smoothness of the merc really impressed me. The hull was also very quick to plane.
Ive since took the 560 out in the rough stuff and the truth is she`s just not up to it.
If your just gonna mess about in sheltered water, estuaries, lakes etc then ok.
But i can tell you there is no comparison between an adventure and an Osprey. Even a 16 year old one!
Be patient. Don`t be fooled by the adventures good looks.
Oh and btw the reason they get on the plane so quick is because the hull is extremely lightweight (paper thin)
