Yeh shes a swiftcraft sportsman. Awsome safe deep water boat.I have been caught in some very rough weather and glad that I was in my swifty and not in a newer,lighter boat. The deck space is huge now and the performance/handling is better than before.

Agree with the great hull comments

Ours has proved to be a great ride and very dry with the flared bow.... Will be sorry to see it go but the boss has spoken.
Time to try (Own) ali for the first time!!!!
And maybe bigger (ssshhhhh) Wink

Goodluck with the ali boat

Goodluck with the ali boat after getting out of yours. There in no comparison in the ride unless you go way bigger.Awsome for up north but.

Ride comparison

Sat, 2010-05-08 20:55

Yeah I know we will be compromising the ride quality going ali but the lack of grief I get from her while holding onto the swifty in the wind by herself will make up for it Yell

 

Just gotta get her out on one and show her the difference then maybe talk her into a newer/lighter glass runabout!!!!

Cheers,

David
