Mr. Metal I dont know what punked out means but bring your 1/10 boat to the loto lake shootout and lets she how she does Have you ever riden in a supercat. I know there are a few in Havasu, you mightt want to ride in one first and then respond. Since I'm a dealer I'm very concerned about resale or I would be out of business.Staggered or side by side the arneson is a good drive but does'nt sell in the midwest. I think its a good drive, why do you guys keep writing about them. I've driven them I know how they respond and dock. As for modern I would assume 04 and 05 would fit that classification and no neither one of the boats is old staggered. they are both side by side both Hustlers

Whoa buddy, I was making what looks like a failed attempt at humor, sorry if you took it the wrong way. no offense intended. But for the record my boat costs 3/10 of what a Nor tech does and yes I've been in one
The point I was trying to make and I'll lay it out a little plainer for you is that any one of us that is truly into this game of ours know the names and quality of this stuff the way a woman knows shoes And I would venture to guess that it would be close to a 50/50 split on what the majority of people consider to have a better resale. I think this would be a great topic for a poll btw, maybe you are the guy to post it?

I guess it just boils down to who you feel most comfortable with, or just buy the 525 merc , save the 10k and be happy with 540hp.I think for resale or new go blue if it was my personnal boat Zuls are cream of the crop, have personnally spoke with all of them, they are all great guys and have great warranties,

but you dont win 3 boat of year awards for nothing.

Resale also depends on where you are located and what type of water and boat application you use. On inland lakes Mercury sells, In the Ozarks if you want to sell new boats put in Mercury period. My point was simply that in my location people would'nt buy an Arneson drive period, not because its not good because of name recognition, drive and prop dangers while swimming and Nobody has them at loto. By the way did you like the nortech ride? sorry

Thats a good point too, like if you took a DCB to FL it would probably lose some value because it isn't well known in that area.

That is basically what I was saying, certainly not putting down the drive, just midwesterners are very conservative and hardheaded, they dont want to look at alternatives even if they are better.Any drive with Tranny is better than a Bravo. and yes Arnesons throw a nice tail too.You guys still should come up to the shootout . some wild boats and women. aug 26th.

I didn't ride in the Nor Tech, the 2 supercats I've been in were the 44' Magic and 36 Spectre. The stance of the 36 NorTech is something awesome to see when it is coming at you full bore, we actually got video of a fellow boardmember ( bling bling ) on a run in Havasu, i'll see if I can get Steve to post it in the platinum section for all to see.

You started talking $ and getting punked . As you can tell I dont put my thoughts on the net that often but I just happen to be stupid enough to buy a NOR-TECH . I like NOR- TECHS also . Can you tell . Do I need someone to ask me to put somthing on here?
