Have decided to give it (MV) a try. Should get the boat soon.. P.S. I
trialed the 2510mv and the 2310DV in about a 3 foot sea and honestly
did not see a great deal of difference . I am not a speedster in
rough water anyway and prefer to pick my days to fish. We always have
the Gulf, where it is usually pretty calm. I am very happy to have
found this site and will continue to watch as time goes
on...delidon@m...
