I ski with several people and we trade off boats-these include a 1990 Supra Comp, a 2006 Malibu Response LXI and a 2008 Moomba Outback ski boat. I have noticed when driving these "pure" ski boats that their turning radiuses are much tighter than my 2000 Air Nautique-all of these boats have a better slalom wake but the dramatic difference is in the turning radius. I believe my boat hull is the same as the 2000 Ski Nautique-just stretched to 21.5 feet.
Is it the extra length that accounts for wider turning radius ? I am very happy with my boat but am just curious about this.
