I think they were ponies instead of horses, and they prefered to trot instead of gallop!

Right ..... Ok, I think If I limit myself to 200hp, the the 20 is a better bet, otherwise I might end up with a slow boat?! Would like it to do 60 without too much trouble ...

Yeah I have to admit when I say that i'll do 80 I am wanting to be optimistic.. It is a power house of an engine, I really went for it as it was going for a good price and the fact that I would like to tow big flying tubes, and multiple wakeboarders behind, I like to have the pulling power, thats what I say to the ladies anyway

I do like the sundeck on mine though, thats the one thing that the 21 wins. It makes it so much more spacious, something to tan on and have a few pints

As I said for comfort/space the ring 21 wins hands down compared to the 20 or less. But its up to you what your looking for.

good luck with your choice, rings all the way ooh yeah

Ring - 1
Phantom - 0

right just took a photo of me lying on the sundeck, take into consideration I am just over 6ft and I am lying comfortably legs bent for sure but hey if the boat were wider I could fit an elephant on it and the boat would go too slow.

HUH !!!! Like it ... all you need now is some nice chick to stroll along !! OK .. Looks reasonably spacious .. have to seriously consider the 21 I think ... Cheers for that !

Also, whats under the deck ? If theres no I/B then must be alot of storage space ?

think about it this way, your not going to be racing around the harbour or offshore 24/7 when your in the boat through the summer. Friends are going to want to come aboard and frollic around in the sun and and have more and more so then youll definitely need the space when you decide to be LOL so an all rounder is the 21

Ring=2
Phantom=0
wahooo
