Default What was the WETTEST boat you have ever rode

I think this would be interesting little discussion. Up untill last sat, i will retract my statement in saying I thought my boat was the wettest boat. I have now added a 26 shamrock cuddy to the top of my list, Its almost like having someone point a fire hose at the windshield at times.

For fresh water, a now defunct company known as Vision bass boats (Nashville, Tennessee) produced some of the wettest boats I've ever run during the late 80's early 90's. Sort of a Ranger hull knock off, but rode very flat, and very, very wet. No matter what the water conditions, you were going to get wet running a Vision. Nonetheless, they had a nice ride, and handled well, but no lift at all. The wettest bass boat I've ever seen.

18 ft Lund Alaskan .... I went fishing on once and the owner pulled out a dry bag and said I should put anything I didn't want to get wet in it.

26ft century. Wettest, worst riding boat in anything over 1 ft chop. I suppose it would be tolerable if you stood on a trampoline behind the console with a scuba mask and snorkel on... but otherwise it goes down as the worst for me. I have been offshore in bay boats that were drier and rode better. Seriously, words do not do it justice.
