Nortech 50 would be my choice. You will appreciate the extra hull length and weight in big water. Also, $100K goes a long way in gas, insurance, and upgrades (if needed). Finally, the 50 has a huge cockpit for lots of people to party with.
Also, now Terry will/might/could hopefully work with me on the price of a 43, as I pointed the boat out to you . Teryy???
Good luck with your choice (fun one to make)!!!
