I need a bit of advice please... I have a dilema (a nice one).... I am interested in two boats but need a bit of impartcial advice... I'm stuck
2004 Tornado 695
2004 200hp Mercury Optimax (300 hours)
2004 7m Osprey Vipermax
2004 200hp Honda 4 stroke (300 hours)
Both boats are in great nick and look the part... but I'm not sure about the difference in hulls ?? I have a Oxprey 5.85 which I'm impressed with, but I know the pedegree of Tornado is also excellent...
I use the boat for diving, wakeboarding and trips out... after RIB'ing for 15 years I go out in any weather and I'm after a boat that will handle big swell and chop very well.... i often go around Anglesey and I'll be looking to do Dublin this year.... 'Out the hole' performance and top speed is also quite important... Fuel consumption is not an issue.
I've recently been told that I should look for a hull with 24 / 25 degree pitch.. and I have know idea which each is...
Does anyone have an opinion please ?
