    Question For Capt. Steve

    Need your input Capt. 

    I have a 2002 Fundeck 196r. I love the boat most of the time. My problem with it is that when the water gets choppy at speeds over 20mph, the ride is very rough on this boat. I kind of knew that going in, but I thought I could live with it. Unfortunately, my wife and kids really complain about the not so comfortable ride.

    So I've been looking for a different boat in the Hurricane family, specifically a 2006 GS 202. From your experience, will the ride be better (smoother) on this hull or is it even more bumpy? Or is will it be the same?

      @omar174 ... Don't think there would be a huge difference in ride besides the fact it's a bigger boat. That is four model years worth of hull improvements, however. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Any chance for a test drive?

      No worries Capt. I think the seller ended up selling the boat anyways. So I'll just keep my Fundeck for now.

      My gs 202 is smoother than my old Fundeck for sure
