My take.... unless you have personal experience with the F4 you need to base your opinion on those that do.

And I would caution a rush to judgement just because its a new name to the 40 plus game. Let the boat itself determine if it belongs in the conversation or not, not hear say.

Since I don't have personal experience with all 4, I won't comment further as it would be an uneducated comment.....

My inquiry had absolutely nothing to do with the 43... Just for the record.

Great thread Neil, you got everyone fired up. I thought coming out of a 42 Tiger you would be inquiring about an F4 and apparently so did everyone else, including Dave Donchez.
I think Dave's response was aimed at the F4 comparison.

I don't think that a 32 Sunsation (and I have a 32) can be judged on the same level as a NT, OL or Cig because they don't compete at the 32 ft level. Smallest boat from 2 builders is a 39, and Cig does make the Vice but don't think that is a real popluar boat (probably a couple dozen ever built) so for them so basically their smallest is a 38 TG.

As far as speeding tickets in your boat you should just pull the big power and put a couple of 525's in there and enjoy stock, slower but reliable power. I wouldn't trade from a 42 to a 32 no matter who makes it.

Cigarette doesn't make the Vice anymore so the smallest is a 38 Top Gun GT.

You thought wrong and Dave Donchez knew that I was inquiring on a 32. My email(s) to him were very specific to the 32 and his responses implied he knew exactly the boat I was refuring too. If you'd like I can post all email correspondences to and from Dave.

Cig builds a 30, a true 30, without the molded swim plattform.

How do you know you wouldn't? Have you owned a 42'?

Perhaps my priorities have changed. Perhaps I'd like to have money to have other toys besides a boat. Ever consider that?
