Thats why I was thinking the 32 over the 36. A couple months ago I got quoted for a 32 skater with 496's $8000!!!
I think we're going to move up to a faster Galdiator or a Donzi ZR.

That's nuts!! You guys probably have a big lay-up period too, right? I never got an exact quote but had been told for a 36 Skater or Nor-Tech with decent size power and no layup in South Florida, around $15-20k and that is just nuts. We pay a little over $6,000 for the T/S Gun and my dad is 59 with a million years of boating experience.

Talk to Rik at Arneson.

Gladiator is a great boat also. Day and Night differences. My buddy has a Gladiator

They say you need cat experience, but how do you get it if you cant buy a cat???? We only pay $1500 for the Gladiator. Same here with the dad and experience, 61 and years and years of experience.
Indy,
That would definitely wake the boat up a bit. I heard Phil was going to build one with 700's but I dot think anything came of it. I know the Glad wasn't designed for transmission drives.
