Ring/ Phantom/ Hydroline??

I'm new here so first I would like to say Hi to everybody!!

I have 14ft Shakespeare clubman and I'm thinking about buying something bigger and faster.
I would like to have about 150hp on it now and in the future something stronger I hope.
My question is:
Which of this boat would be the fastest??
21" Ring??
21" Phantom??
Hydroline T20??

Mostly I will be running on lakes but somethimes I would like to go offshore to have fun on bigger waves
I will be usieng this boat for waterskiing also

So what do you guys think about those boats?? What would be the best?? I belive that T20 will be the fastest.
Or maybe there are some other performance boat manufacterers??


MIKE

I'd like to add, that i'm not knocking the Haines design, or Seaquel build in the slightest, but wonder what drives you to reccomend a boat to someone, that you haven't actually used yourself


BTW Mike, my personal opinion is a Phantom 21, if you can find a nice one. They stopped making the genuine article in about 1999.

I am not familiar with the Hydroline T20, (is it from the hydrolift family)

The argument tween Ring & Phantom supremacy has, and will continue to rage for eternity.

I didn't know that Argo make V-hulls
Can you tel me where can I find more info/data about those Argos, Cyclones, Seaquels??

I know Bernico, they are pretty cool boats but I belive they are quite heavy and they need a lot of HP to go fast

Do you maybe know any websites where can I find boats for sale??

Thanks
Mike

i mentioned it as a 4th option. quoting the model name does not make a recomendation. this is getting childish now.
