Being a NorTech fan I think they all look great..... But since that is not going to help you make a decision, I like the 2nd rendering #1.... add some more Orange to make it jump out more....

Looks great though, curious on the performance when it is done, good luck.

Thanks. The other 4300 went 74, when I was on it. It wasnt quite dialed in, and we were using 5 blades. What I did that was different was lose the notch in the transom, which placed the motors slightly lower and back to change COG. Went with a lighter layup, consisting of more kevlar reducing weight approx 6-800 pounds. Went with zipper pouches and doors except head door, good for another appr. 200 pounds. Changed exhaust to 6" vs 5" with a switchable flap built into the vent tubes to be closed off once up on plane which will drastically help acceleration. Changed to 6 blade props, the goal is 80mph. and I believe we will be close. Possibly in the future there will be some engine management tuning for the electronic injection, but it's all about reliability, higher cruising speeds, and better fuel economy, and hopefully cheaper ins. rates. I will keep everyone posted, going down Thursday to pick out cockpit and cabin colors. Thanks Jeff

less is more. there is nothing that highlights the lines of a boat like a simple uniform paint job in say, navy blue with lighter highlights along the hull and around the fairing and air intakes, like silver for example...

if i had to go for something wild and colorful, call me old-fashioned but nothing beats a good flame paintjob...

Jeff agree with pm, dont get to hung up on too many designs, tribal not, you are very good with colors, keep your color scheme, easy on the green and keep it more simple, the 43 nortech has awesome lines, and does'nt need a radical paint job, just nice smooth lines, be interested to see what you go with on your interior as I'm changing mine right now, let me know if anything hits you when you go to nortech, all good advice on this thread, wiggler

Oh yeah - I already said blue. Remember what you have been telling yourself - you are keeping this boat!

Jeff, I am confused about one thing - when you lose the notch do you have to lower the drives just a bit? Water should rise off that notch to allow the X dimension to be a bit higher.

From what I understand, the problem is to get the COG to change more aft. This will get the nose up. Also this gets the ASD8's in a little cleaner water further back. I sent you an email on the paint.

I found something less, and something I really like today on another designer/painters website, and I will see what he can come up with. I just sent him an email. It is very tastefully done, with alot of fades on a Cig, blues and silvers. BTW I wanted to also Thank You for the advise on set up and everything else. Jeff

Here is a nice clean design that could be juiced up with a taste of color. Maybe a little orange on the sides replacing or with along side the gray.
