Thanks for the info everyone. I have been in Florida since Wednesday, and away from a Computer, so I just read through all this, and am soakin everything up.

My dileama right now, is that I am about to inherit some money, but the paperwork won't be finalized for a couple months. (have to sell house, assest, etc) so I am kinda "loking" right now. My boat, and houseboat are sold, and that money is just sitting, so unless I find something that is too good to pass up, it will most likelly be after the new year, before I pul lthe trigger. I am continueing to look every week though.

my favorite is the nordic heat. its the one boat I just keep coming back too. I really like the lines. I have been looking at the one in Washington, but the hours kinda scare me. and the fact that its in Washington. Found a similar one in the midwest for not much more, with much less hours.

I appreicate the offer on the seeing the Sunny in person. I may just take you up on that. How is the cabin on the 288's? My wife's only requests were a nice cabin. We will probably overnight, or weekend on it, quite a bit

I really appreciate all the info.

He wants a cabin, I haven't been in the Apache or Saber, but the Pantera's cabin is half the size of the cabin in the boat he's considering. Saber is a flat deck and is probably the same as the Pantera but that's just conjecture on my part since I haven't been in one.

He's also a lake boater, those are rough water boats you've recommended.

I have a PQ 280 and my buddy has a 28 heat, the Nordic has a great ride but in my opinion the PQ was a better built and more comfortable boat. Cabins are about the same size on both, I would'nt consider any of these boat "overnighters", I guess ir depends oin your age but the older I get the more comfortable I need to be when I sleep.

my saber has lots of room I think, starts with a potty closet on the left right is storage step threw a bulkhead to couches on each side then another bulkhead and a big azz vee berth. when I looked at it there was two of us looking at the vee me 5 11 214 and 62 he was 200 we were looking at the coring. so theres someroom in them. rough water killer boat. its all cored with balsa top to bottom and fg hull and deck joint.
