tooting your PP horn

I have someone who does that for me (very rarely).
That was a serious question tho. After readying the article about composite hulls. Makes me wonder.

I personally don't like any of them. They are all a bunch of hype...

I agree, it was and still to date is a great article. I personally am not into a all no wood boat. I like the way Nortech builds them as well. Over 1" thick, wood in all the right area's, a layup that seems to work, using carbon fiber in certain areas and in my boat a resin infused process, not to stiff to loosen your filins, and great in the ruff stuff. I could not be more pleased with my latest 43. They dont care to compete in the racing division, so there set up is perfect for the masses. Im pleased, and Ive owned many boats, and always seem to come back to these 43 V's.

I crawled around in a NT39 last year at Fastboats and was very impressed. I have never ridden in one yet. Chuck Allens36 cat is the only other one I've seen up close. Not that many of them up here.

I see the ATs are not on your list so are they as good as a PP ?

Ok, atleast you didn't mention AT so you can come with us to Key West next year, again.

But this time you HAVE to stop for fuel.

Right, ClarkStar?

10 years ago when most of the experimentaion began I agree. All manufacturers had a learning curve. Myself included.

Today, I totally disagree but only if the learning curve lesson was actually learned.
