“Most interested in the ride and performance. I am pretty familiar with the Intrepid build quality at the time, but if you have anything specific you have had issues with that would be good information.

Being wider than the 246 I owned previously, I wonder fi the boat will ride as well, especially in a head sea. How has the ride been in your experience offshore?

Also, I have not owned a step hulled boat. I understand some have funny characteristics at speed, especially in turns. Have you experienced anything I should be watch for in the sea trial?

What power does yours have? I am interested in your speed and rpms at wide open throttle, as well as your cruise speed, rpms, and fuel burn at cruise. This boat is rigged with 200 hp HPDIs, and is a bit slower than I would have guessed.”
