I'm talking about hull thickness/rigidity. They're nearly identical in terms of weight and thickness. MC probably does have a better ride because of the insulated hull, I'd just never buy another 15 after owning one for 3 years. I've been in more Malibu's than I've been in mastercraft's and I couldn't tell much difference in ride and quality vs mc. Probably because the quality of my 15 wasn't up to MC standards.
