Chris,
I inquired about it earlier in the year and we couldn't agree on a price. They called me back today. I've been hearing alot of people say they wouldn't go with the rudder/surface drives.

Are you in LV yet? Been busy here. Kristen got engaged and have been ramping up an iP camera division. Hope all is well with the new relocation.

What's the negative on the drives and motors? (I'd be OK with 850's or even 700's, but would rather have the 900's instaed of the 1075's. (Insurance)

Boat was originally built for National Marine and sold to a young guy in Florida, which is where is stayed until he sold it. It has a pretty cool DVD player set up in the cuddy.
Nothing wrong with the Rudder as long as you don't loose a motor, then they can be a *****. The 900's are great motors, I've had 2 sets with no problems.They run good and with little maintaince except the usually solid roller requirements.My MTI SUV like that one ran about 130 anytime with 10 people on board. Supposedly ran 137 when in was new with some really good Herring, but I never saw anything close to that. You have to have a high rake prop with that boat as it is very bow heavy with the large cuddy. I ran a 20* herring which was great, Merc now makes a 21* that may just as good or better.

Will be going out end of February. Was a major hassle getting my license out there. Fingerprints, formal FBI investigation, endless paperwork, etc. My boss is the head of the Nevada Bureau of Homeland Security. Finally a call to the governor of Nevada lit a fire under their backside (the Nevada Medical Board).

Hope you make it out to visit ...

We Did the paint back in 2003. Still looks great from what I can see, but it is missing the Geo logo it had by the rudder. Ha, Ha.

So they must have overlooked your background check I'll be out there for an NEC meeting in February.
