You can push the Mystic faster because it is a more stable platform, not only becasue of the size, but also the design. It is engineered to run extreme speeds. Also look at the construction. I do not know exactly how the MTI's are built, but the Mystic is extremely high end with materials and construction process for a very similar price. So in conclusion it is a better design and a better built boat then anything out there for a similar price. That is why everyone is switching over. Bud, cintron, geico and probably the class one guys soon. There is even a rumor of a certain other new 50' cat that is being traded in on one as a poker runner.

Lost,

fun thread, Like Scotty B said we plan on running both boats next year as 113. Utilising each boats best charateristics for course and water conditions. Really putting on a show for the fans.

Just because a boat is leading doesn't mean it will take the flag at the end of the race. You have to finish to win. That said, chasing a longer boat running too hard in big seas at our speeds is a futile cause not to mention the equipment wont last as orange beach proved. Also the "smaller more powerful" MTI weighs 3000lbs more than the Bud boat.

The Big question??? What will Bud Select bring out to race our MTI in LOTO? That will give you the answer to your questions.

We really enjoy racing our MTI and are equally excited about our new Cosker Mystic.

Racing with the Cintron and Bud guys..just a whole lot of excitment. The back stretch at LOTO should be insane between these two boats.

True, but that is an issue with the engines, electronic systems. I do believe in that HP range Turbines are better. The boat was the best running/handeling/smoothest boat in orange beach. If the rest of the systems would last, it would be unstoppable.

Wow, thats crazy, which proves the construction of the Mystic is that far advanced. Miss lonlgite is even lighter then Bud Select. How does your turbine MTI compare in weight to the Bud Select MTI?

The guy who it's being built for has a killer 50 Magnum. This Mystic is just insane.
