Mystic in Deland, they are building the new Gieco boat. I believe they are shut down for the week, but if you get in touch with Dean Ferry on here, he may be able to pull a few strings

And, I have'nt really check exactly where is Boynton beach, what city are close so on and so on...

Active Thunder is about 20 or so minutes south of Boynton Beach; in Pompano Beach, FL.

Give me a heads-up closer to the date, and I'll make sure you see the AT factory on a personal note, (21-24th would be best). Several of the AT/OSO crew, --er I mean cult, will be in town that week; as the Annual Winter Thunder Run departs for the Keys that Friday morning, the 25th. You will meet quite a few folks to hang out with.

Nor-tech is in Ft.Meyers..2-1/2 hours across Aligator Alley. Their service Dept. is 25 min. away....

You are probably thinking of Fast Boats.com Randy Sweers that is a dealer for NorTech., Jeff

I saw this thread this morning and just knew it was a matter of minutes before you would chime in.

Brian, thanks so much for your offer to get my boat down there for this. I can't wait for the day that work stops getting in the way of my boating....

Jeff, do yourself a favor and schedule a trip to Pampano to meet up with these guys and go for a ride. Plan for an afternoon....and bring lots of beer!
