Would a 36 Nortech break a 100 with 525's?
There is a white with purple Nortech 36 for sale on here through FASTBOATS.com that says it will run 108mph, cruise at 75mph.

Anyone know what a 39 MTI would run with that setup?

A 36 Nor-Tech with 525's will only run 100 under the best of conditions. Mid 90's everyday of the week. A bravo 36 Nor-Tech is unsellable in my opinion (too big, too heavy). I am talking from expeience, I had a 525 Nor-Tech with 525's with #5 drives.

A 39 w/ 525's runs low 120-125 depending on props. No speculation but experience. Put a little boost to it and WHEW, It's a Marine Technology WORLD!

Anthony, glad to see you in the mix! Hope all is well!
