I am considering purchasing an AC Bearcat 4 stroke big pig. My question concerns open water. I have ridden open water on a mountain style machine but I am concerned about the performance of this heavy of a machine on water. I have heard snow machines compared to boats in that a lighter planing style machine will do well on water whereas the heavy displacement style machine will not. I have also been told that track speed is very important and the widetracks are geared for power and not speed. I assume momentum would carry one across narrow stretches, but what about 50 yards or even more?
Thanks in advance to the super aquaman snow machiners out there.
