That is exactly what they said about the Sunsation F4. It ran 101 like it was on rails.

I was giving you a hard time (like always )..... Glad to hear you're so busy....

Looks like you guys have some nice repeat business ----- that's when you know you're doing it right! Very nice. I can see why you joined 'em!

Joe

P.S. Pplz. don't encourage Tim --- he's already started the whole "Joey" thing... most likely b/c there isn't much we can do with his name. However, if you come up with something good, give me a call --- he's over due for a good ribbing! ).

so the question remains, can we use the NXT gimble assembly with a 6? this would make the transom conversions much easier..

I'm glad to hear that. That is the speed I was hoping for.

I think the NXT cutout is actually bigger than 6, so i'm gonna say prolly not. Longer top to bottom.

....and I'm not saying this because I am a Cig. fan. No PR here. Just sharing info on the new stuff.

The NXT's did initially have tranny problems. It got worked out quickly though.

I will second this. I rode in the silver and red factory 700/NxT 39 TGU (now owned by Andy Smith) from Miami to KW the weekend of the poker run and it ran like a dream for extended periods in 2-3" seas at 100+ mph. A truly bad-ass package in that boat.
