No, not Hustler envy at all. The owner was advertising how great the Rockit is, how fast it is and generally talking smack against the other builders through his ad campaign. HE claimed they had a crew working 40 hour weeks unlike other builders, the boat runs 115 out of the box despite no other boat doing those numbers and his aggressive ad campaign was paying dividends nicely........

I said his boats are only seen at the Miami show so where are all of these dividends paying off? How many Rockits have been built in the 2 years it has been out?


To answer your question. Sunsation has built more than a dozen 43's in the last two years. All have been 700 boats except hull #1 (600's/XR's), a 1075 boat and a Ilmor 725 boat. Most manufacturers have extensive online photos of new boat projects (OL, NT, Sunsation have all recently done "online projects"). I was encouraging Mr Promotion from NY to add a few photos of all these boats he is producing.

Jassman is right..........I prefer Nortechs to Hustlers any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

I now know the pricing, and it very comparable pricing, this is what I anticipated (meaning engine, headers, driveline, whole package less props). Either package would be a winner, if I only had the $$,$$$. I do like the Illmor 725, with the Indy drive.

At some point this summer, you may see this one on Chesapeake Bay, at Llyod Creek, the Inn, or Still Pond. You're free to examine it up close.

Where's our GPS numbers? Everyone's unanimous on that front: we need to see 'em.

You have to also compare weight....

The Ilmor 725 and Indy drive weight is a hair over 1200 lbs. with fluid....compare that to a Merc 700 and a NXT drive x 2....

Also Bob at ILMOR told me on the 650 at wide open throttle it burns 40 gallons a hour....

1548 x 2 + 3,096 (dry?) vs 2,400 is 696 lbs. or the approximate equivalent of 112 gallons of gas (about half a tank).

Chuck,

I have been watching your new engine build, and I do look forward to seeing it in action.
