The VLX has a little more freeboard that the SAN

Both do pretty good.

I would absolutely ignore the differences.

If the water is so bad that the difference matters, then you will want to get off the water.

My SANTE handles the chop fairly well. I have been in chop that is about 2', and I did have to slow way down, and just trench my way through it, but it did it fine.

I try to avoid that rough of water, but if i get into it I just try to find the quickest way out.

IMO, size and weight are the only things that will make a boat handle the chop better, so if it is choppy, I justfill the tanks and find the best speed.

Find out which boat is heavier and has more v in the hull. My lake is the same way and it sucks when you have to drive five miles to find smooth water. BTW the X2's suck in rough water.
