I live in Seattle, Wa and experience some rough water at times.
Looking to upgrade from my Magic 29 Wizard. Would like a 99 or newer 35 fastech, but out of my price range right now.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

The Nordic....Seems to be the best value.

The AT is very nice -- but the Nordic is bar far the better value IMO -- though the gelcoat colors could be a bit better. I presume it's been all fresh water up there in Iowa. You would not be disappointed with a Nordic 35' Flame -- if all is in as good condition as the seller claims.

There is a reason that AT is on the cover of a magazine. Audacity was built by a member here on this board, and he was extremely anal on how he took care of the boat. The current owner is the same. You can't go wrong with the AT.

Second would be the 35 Nordic. Great boat, great layout, and there are several that run well in this area.

I would go with the Nordic or the Active thunder. The Nordic is for sale for a heck of a buy.

The Nordic is on a steel trailer. You are probably going to want an aluminum trailer for salt water dipping.
