Gary - no Patriot is going up the Delta... (when I receive final payment)

Are you coming out to Miami? I think there is a Club 66 out there.... way down, underground....

Before I finally bought my Active Thunder, I had looked at Cigerette,Outerlimits,Powerplay, and Sonic. If money were no concern and you had to have the best I felt on ride, cabin roominess and creature comforts, and fit and finish the Outerlimits won. It has a more effiecient bottom, better numbers, and one hell of a lay up, they have done alot to the boating industry in just a few short 8 years, too me they are the leader, and everyone else is trying to play catch up. The reason why I bought an Active Thunder 37avh, just as quick as the OTLTS, and built with the same integrity for less money. They are the Outerlimits of the future, one hell of a company that I'm proud to say I own a totally customized boat built to 99% of the same std at a better value. Check their web site out, I bet you can get a new boat for what you are paying for the used ones and have equal power. www.activethunderboats.com Go to latest news and graphics, Check out RaDiOAcTiVe. Good luck to you in your decision, between the two I would go Outerlimits.

There both great boats, but yoy gotta go with the Cig. They are built like tanks, and you will get an exeptional ride. Plus longer is better. Just ask your wife!

Again, I agree with others; "What a great decision to be able to make".

That said, I think these are two completly different boats. The Cig you are talking about probably has a full cabin - probably bigger than the OL. No doubt, the OL will be faster. Sit in them, ride in them, have a cocktail - you'll know which one you want. If you don't "feel the love", don't buy either one - neither is the boat you want.

if you were gettign a cat go with a skater. If youa regoign vee go with a OL.

Last summer at the OPA races in NJ the pace boats was an OL and was the first one throughet cut heading to the ocean from what i head they got like 10' of air and kept on going and eth boat took it liek it was a 1' in the air. From everythign i have heard teh outerlimits is the ****. Hell i might even take a nice outerlimits over a skater! Search the achives i am sure you will find a bunch of thrades about outerlimits. From what i have heard here they are the toughest biult (beast in snotty water) yet are fast as hell and with the tightest quality control in layup.
The ones taht i have seen were frikkin amazing! Besides therea are tons of cigs but not to many OL and i think in terms of resale they will hold thier value better than a cig. Many people sem to be trading up to them. Tom FTM just got a 37 OL and is selling his PRISTINELY restored 38 cig.
