My search for the best island hopper for Maine waters carries on. What are the differences in ride and handling between these two boats? They should bwe about the same size, right?

Cockpit size is a little smaller in the 22 Revenge with WD. The beam of the 25 Revenge/Outrage is 8' and the beam of the 22 Revenge/Outrage is 7' 5". The 22 with WD weighs several hundred pounds less than the 25. Cabin size is the same.

There is more difference in size between the two hulls than is often realized. The 25 weighs about 1300 lbs more, or about 65% more. That is your best indication of the larger size. Requires about 50% more HP also.

Where could I get the specifications on the 25 foot model Revenge walkthrough? How hard is it to trailer?

With a properly set up trailer, and I emphasize this, meaning good keel roller system and brakes (getting hard to find these days), it's as easy to trailer as an 18 Outrage. With a poorly set up and rigged trailer, almost impossible. You'll hate it, and spend most of your time cursing when at the launching ramp. I simply couldn't imagine handling a boat that big on a bunk trailer.(besides, you'll warp the hull sides) You'll need a vehicle with a 7000lb tow rating, probably a weight distributing
hitch, but should be able to tow it safely at 60-65MPH. In 12 years, mine's been at least 80,000 miles over the road, including a trip to the coast of Maine! No sweat at all, except for the 7 MPG I get towing, down from a normal 22MPG! Steeper hills slow me down to about 45mph with my 190HP Chevy 350 engine.
