Check out the all white 47 fountain with the silver windshield with shogren on the side of the boat...was his triple 700 boat. The other 47 was a twin 700 boat.

So the 700/NXT version is not as good? How much $$ per engine for the #6 upgrade?

Does anyone know if the 6 lower changes with the nxt lower? I realise you would have to install water pick ups if you changed. Side x side Nxts are difficult to dial in as far as handling goes.
