Amen. If you want to see what 850's are like I would get the 40. I personally think the 42's look too cut off in the back. I would (and did) go with the 44 top deck, with or without BPM. Joe, I happen to know a dock in Oklahoma that has two six seat 44's as well as a 4 seat 44 and a standup 44 if you want to take a look. Damn, I think we should go into business since we have as many MTI's as Frankie!

Thanks for the ideas, I want the ride of a 42 and the speed without a re-build every 75 hours if lucky with 1075's. Would a pair of Potter 1200s be a good idea. I love my 1150's, they run and run and run. They have lasted 175 hours before re-build on my friends 36' nor-tech who only knows wide open. He was the reason I bought my boat with that power now. I would of never believed it if I did not see it.

I am told the 44 is only a rutter boat and a tilt trailer, that seems like a real pain in the ass to me for 2 feet.
