Maybe its set up, two 140's vrs a single 250 is a huge difference in regard to balance. I'd even go as far as saying complete opposites.
He's bringing his boat back to Melbourne for the snapper season, we normally launch out of st Kilda.... can arrange a meet up if your mate wants to compare ?? but as mentioned, completely different set up by the sounds... Mates one came out of Tasmania from a commercial fisherman, had it for about 10 years now......
I know one thing he commented to me was that the more you load it up,( he has a hard top fitted) the better it performs, hence their preference from abalone divers and he's had quite a few big boats, and recons nothings performed out wide, especially in rough conditions than what he has now. I've not been out wide with him yet, hopefully this season.
Yeah interesting eh. I do feel like it's got a lot to do with the weight at the back. We are going to a refuge trip in November with a heap of other Edencraft owners, so that will be a good trip to compare the ride, and/or how others drive it and might change my mind on the ride, but we will see.
