Greetings all. After 15 years of owning cruisers, last year I traded in a 40' Carver motoryacht for a 2007 28' Eliminator Daytona w/twin 496 HO's - 100 mph boat...and have been having a ball. I've been attending poker runs with this boat and have been exposed to a whole new side of boating - that I wish I knew about sooner.
Well, I am considering making a move into something slightly larger and slightly faster (no surprise there I am sure) - and I have seen a couple Nor-Techs at these runs, and I am intrigued. It seems that the Skater's and MTI's have the mind share of the hard cores, but when I looks that the Nor-Tech's side by side with these alternatives, I really like the way the Nor-Techs look, and appear to run.
I have some questions for seasoned Nor-Tech owners:
1. What made you choose Nor-Tech over the other cat alternatives?
2. I am interested in the 36 SuperCat - how does it handle the chop (ie. my current 28 Elim can't handle anything over 3 footers.
3. I am interested in 120 mph boat - what setup should this be (ie. Merc 700's with NXT, or ILMor 700 with Sixes, etc...)
I look forward to your responses.
