The NorTech reminds me of the meteor. Still one of the coolest layouts ever.

That's an 18,000 lb. boat, has about a 9' 6 " beam as I recall.

Flip flop here on lake Erie has one for sale with new cats and arnesons, -- everything done -- it would easily be the cheaper way rather than buying everything and rigging it. It's an 89' also and is a very good looking boat.

Is this the blue and gray Meteor that has been for sale on different websites?

It's in bad shape because its not taken care of. When he got back from the Miami Boat show run he won't even pay American Offshore to wash so they just put it up. Over the New Year he took a large wave over the bow on the way to Key West and he didn't have the hatches tightened down so he soaked his cabin and I'm soaked it. The cabin till this day has not been cleaned from the soaking.
