    I've never been on one, but I have heard they do pretty well in a head sea and have great accommodations IMO. You can ask Brett, Mako Marine's founder's son in the History Q&A thread. His username is TrippleBogey.

      There is one similar in CA for less than half that price. Not updated like this one but for about $36K less you can buy what you need

        Dad had a '99, so it was Tracker era. Boat was a absolute tank in head seas. Quartering following seas was interesting. Lots of weight up high in that boat, raised helm area, high cabin, high COG. The boat would bow steer. Combine that deep V and high COG, it's an uneasy feeling when it starts that.

        I love a walkaround for protection from the elements. But I'd have to say I wouldn't buy a 293. I'd sacrifice in head sea ride for all the other rides and stability and go with a more of a mod V like a Grady. Or in a deep V, go with a CC for the lower COG. Just my $0.02.
