[QUOTE=Spine Tingler;2946452]No offense but I just have to chuckle how you always have to throw in the Mystic into any mix. The original post referenced a 36-40 cat that was between the years of 2003-2006 with about 1000 hp. Didn't know mystic had anything close to this size and year. BTW, when you get your new Mystic put about 1000hp in it and call me because I would love to see it keep up with my 44MTI with barely 1000hp. I absolutely love the Mystics as well as the Skaters and Nor-Techs. They are all great boats. I appreciate great boats and craftsmanship.
No offense taken, besides I wasn't the 1st one to throw the Mystic name into this thread, Mr. Scott was. And didn't Dave sell you one of his old race boats? I thought I read that somewhere, I could be wrong.
And yes the c5000 is not in the 36-40 ft/1000 Hp class of cats, but John Cosker @ Mystic can design and build you anything you can dream up. The new 48 pleasure version will be out soon, so maybe you'll get your wish soon and see how it runs against your MTI. They are all great boats, it just depends what kind of boating you do. To each his own......
Have a good holiday
