    Looking at getting a new boat, was wondering what kind of hull this would be considered, I know tri hulls arent good in waves, but it doesnt look like a typical tri hull to me, the way its designed it looks as if the "V" part would take most of the waves. Just curious, thanks in advance! 00b0b_KB5cjj9iJr_1200x900.jpg 00I0I_3uMjcQzLL0x_1200x900.jpg 00o0o_lMdyUAFGNGW_1200x900.jpg

    Reason I'm curious is it seems like the boat has alot of deadrise at the transom, and the hull looks like a V hull up until the front. Thinking it should ride decent in rougher water due to this but really not sure

    Looks like a semi V to me. What kind of fishing do you plan on doing? Keep looking. Lots of boats for sale!!! Shrubby

    That's what I was thinking. Seemed more like a V. And mostly walleye out on the Saginaw Bay, also would like it for skiing and tubing which is reason for getting a cruiser like this. Could get this one for around $600 I'm thinking.

    I don't like tri-hulls, and that sure looks like just that. I like my fillings where they are.

    Picked it up, runs awesome! Have a leak in lower unit it's getting water in the gear lube when ran on muffs, going to replace water pump +pump housing and seals as well as the shift shaft seal and hoping that fixes my issue! Paid $500

    After seeing it in person it's definitely more of a v hull with sponsors on the side. Shouldn't be too bad but we shall find out. Lol
