We currently have a center console boat. My wife isn't too thrilled with it because there's no way to really get out of the elements on a bad day. I was thinking of a new Eastern 24 Tournament but I'm worried about the ride. We boat and fish mostly on Buzzards Bay and when those afternoon Southwesterly winds kick up and hit a Westerly movement of the Cape Cod Canal, the chop gets really big and nasty. I know next to nothing about the Eastern semi-displacement hulls and their characteristics. Can anyone give me their input? Thanks for your help.
