We've been out looking to get a new boat, but being fairly new to boating, have a question maybe someone can help us with. Does 7" of beam width make that much difference in the ride/performance of a boat? We're looking at a Seary 260 versus a Rinker 270. The Searay has an 8'6" beam while the Rinker has a 9'1" beam. Any input would be appreciated.
