Can anyone tell me what the wake is like behind a 1995 Barefoot 200. How would it compare to an outboard Flightcraft?

The wakes are pretty similar. I would say no one is better than another. Where these boats do differ is the space and storage being far greater in the BF200.

Depends on the engine, prop pitch, etc. duck guy is right. The storage difference is rather meaningful. Much more in the MC.

Best barefoot boat is the outboard barefoot Sanger. Not to say that either the MC or Flightcraft aren't good boats. But from a purely footing perspective they are second/third to the outboard Sanger.

I have competed behind both. I feel the barefoot 200 had a little more turbulence in the middle of the wake. I felt both "curls" were similar. I agree with duck guy on the space inside the boat. Good luck.
