|I an deciding between these two boats and in both test drives the water has been glass. Our lake gets pretty rough and i would like to know which boat handles the chop better. thanks-smig|
|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.

|"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." isn't that what tige' did making their boats so heavy with out ballast? hassle free travel through rough water|
|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. |
