I've got a 39 Cig w/ 700's/NXT but only 35 hours. So far so good. Cig ran their factory boat last summer with the same set-up on 18+/- poker runs with no problems. And they ran it HARD!

The only problem I have heard of with the NXT drive were with Fountain and I believe OL who both have a higher X dimension than Cig. The cure for that is a #6 lower unit.

With the newer style of bravo drives that have come out as well as the new NXT drives, can you guys share your experience on how both of these drives are lasting. Good or Bad....Give me the type of boat, power and drives as well as hours with out rebuild. Thanks Guys, I'm trying to get him straightened out before he goes to Miami. Jeff
Left you a PM - you have my number.

Always liked the powerquest - big difference between a 38 powerquest and a 43 BT - Is powerquest still in business???

I heard Merc is sending some manufactures the NXTs with #6 lowers to remedy some of the water pickup/pressure prblemss that some have had.
The pick up is in the nosecone.
