Default Which Boat? Money No Object.

Was thinking about this today.

Let's say a brand new OSO member joined today and asked board members to suggest a new 2007 V-bottom and Cat to be built... Money is no object. What would you guys suggest for manufacturer of one V and one Cat, length, and why? Just for the heck of it.

For me it would be a 42 Cig with 6's and Merc 1050's... And a Nortech 43 with 6's and Merc 1050's.

Reason: Cigs and Nortechs are great cruisers, great big water rigs and BIG time eye appeal.

Couple examples...
