I purchased a 2005 Sunesta 216 about this time last year. It is my first boat. I like it, but I have found it pounds on wakes or bigger water when the wind kicks up. I'm currently looking at a 2006 SSi 246. According to their respective spec sheets the SSi has 22 degree deadrise. The Sunesta has 16 degrees. Is this substantial enough to help cut waves better? Also, the SSi I am looking at has 450 hours on a Volvo 8.1 GXI with Duo Prop drive. Is that a lot of hours for this engine? Any known issues with this engine or drive? Thanks in advance for any guidance.
2010 Signature 310 with twin 270 Volvo Penta 5.0 GXiCE-M Dual Prop (Model A 120563) I’m looking to order new props (long story.....) and minimize the down time, but can’t get the part number off the prop (murky waters).

Any experts willing to weigh in?
On the verge of buying either a 1995 Sunesta 250 or a 1997 Sunesta 252. The 1995 250 has a VP 7.4 has a Duo Prop and is $3,500 more than the 1997 252 which has a VP 5.7 with a single prop. They both seem to be in good condition although the 250 has all the original canvas, while the 252 only has the bimini; the rest of the canvas was misplaced. Also, the 250 seems to have a slightly different hull being a 16 degree deadrise versus the 252 which is a 15 degree deadrise. This is true even within a model year, for example in 1997 the deadrise is still 15 for the 252 and 16 for the 250. If you a
