Your right...... not tough at all......... top three for hurtin the checkbook the best. Would'nt want to include the Nortech's in there tho, they seem to hold a great resale value, kinda like the Skaters do.

I know where I can buy a 05 42 outerlimits 850's Dry 6's and every option available from OL, with less than 25 hrs on it, for a touch over $500K. Don't want to hear about OL's great resale.

Feel sorry for Jim, he had a Fountain, listened to all the idiots tellin him about tradin up and goin OL. He ordered an Ol with every possible option to have the ultimate boat, and instead had nothin but problems, a full page worth of em.

He said he's sorry he ever sold the Fountain, and he's gonna get another one whether he sells the OL or it just sits there and rots.
Poor Jimmy, I guess one can say that he learned the hard way. I'm sure he's not gonna be listening to all the "know it alls" anymore.

Sutphen builds a great boat, and pretty fast hull too. It's ashame that they don't advertize a little more like they used to do back in the 80's. Over the last 10 years or so we seem to hear less and less about the Sutphens. It would be great to get those boats back into the performance picture again.
Fred " too old" had a killer 39 Sutphen. I would've liked to seen him keep it, bring it to lake Michigan, and kick some butt here.
