Post Watching w/ envy.

Having just recently purchased my first offshore performance boat(August)and recently started occupying my time here in OSO, you guys have made me jealous. I like to read posts from all of the different owner groups here. I like to learn as much as I can about the hobby I love. Of all the groups that I have been reading yours stands out the most. I have never owned, seen, driven, or ridden in an AT. But listening to you guys talk about them makes me wish I had the money to run out and buy one right now. Anyone feel like a free demo? I enjoy seeing you guys talk about your craft. Keep up the good work making me jealous.

Buck

Thanks Buck, I too did alot of reserch, Have previosly owned good boats (Formula,Fountain,PowerQuest) but wanted something better, something that fits my personality and could take a beating unlike my wallet. I too followed this site, it is a wealth of info, the A.T. co Pat and Steve are as good as it gets, no BS, no sugarcoating nothing, just one fine machine built with top notch materials. I hope someday you too can enjoy a Thunder, have a good year see ya on the water.

Buck,

Welcome into the wonderful world of offshore powerbaoting. Good Luck with you boat.
We are really just a bunch of good people who like to have a great time. Same as Pat and Steve from Active Thunder. Not only do they build a top notch boat that has standards that will knock your socks off I consider them(Pat and Steve) my friends. Like Jeff said they are no bull****, tell ya like it is people who will always give you a straight answer and steer you in the right direction.

I too did a great amunt of research and this is now my second active thunder. I previously owned a 25 which I traded in and then they sold within a month. They really do have a boat in all different price ranges and sizes. I am willing to give you or anyone else from OSO a ride in the FIRST millenium edition Active Thunder to roll out. The boat is in New Jersey, a bit far from Arizona, or I am sure that Jeff will give you a ride in Mississippi. But remember NO ONE can have my seat in the 90 mph ride. That one is permentatly reserved for my ass.

Buck, when you go to Active Thunder's web-site, be sure to click on "Active Owners" and you'll see the boats of several Active Thunder owner's boats pictured there. While you are there, look for "Mark S" and click on the "video" icon and give it a couple of minutes to download...keep your eyes on the screen and crank up the volume! I'm sure you'll like what you see AND hear. Das MY boat!

Dan, Jassman & AT,

Lets see here. I fly out to NJ, take a ride in Dan's machine, then fly down to see Jassman so that he can take me for a ride JUST to make sure that I didn't miss anything and then fly to Florida to AT to get a tour. WOW that would be a trip. I am sure the boys in Florida would treat me to a ride as well.

Better leave the checkbook at home otherwise I might just buy one of those suckers.

Dan, I will keep your invitiation open. Once you get that sweet ride, I will look you up.

Right now a 32 would fit my needs and wallet HOWEVER the 37 AVH I think is worth the wait. We will see.

Jeff

Dan, thanks for your compliment...I really love the boat. It turns a lot of heads and I get a lot of thumbs up on it. Those are Stellings tubular DRY headers behind a pair of 540 inch engines. Everyone loves the sound ....well, ALMOST everyone.
