I'm looking for some advice from some of you guys with more seat time than I have. I presently own a pantera classic with a 200 evinrude. I love this boat it runs good and it is in excellent shape. I would consider upgrading to a larger platform if I thought the difference in the big water ride was significant. Most of my tourneys are on lake champlain in vermont average day is two and three footers but every so often fours and fives will be the order of the day. I struggle in these waves spearing some and just not that comfortable in them. Do you feel a erya or cougar would make a big difference or is it just more seat time for the driver. As always any input will be appreciated.
