Here's a bit from April 2 of this year. It was 83 degrees, but the winds had Lake Michigan kicked up to 4-6 with and occasional 8. We were riding in BZ's 42 Fountain. Turn down the volume if ya don't like a bit of foul language!

Sat in the new OL44 at Miami and loved it. The construction methods looked cutting edge and the style was great. I've been in Bob's Nortech 50 and you definitely won't go wrong with the 43. It was a great boat and we were in some good sized water at one point. Wouldn't hesitate buying one of those either. And a Cig is a Cig but their interiors are way more Spartan than the other mfrs.

You might be able to stand up at the entrance to the cabin (the part under the fairing), but once inside at 6'2" you cannot fully stand up. I'm 5' 11" and spent a lot of hours on an F-4 and I could not stand up all the way in the cabin. The boat is a small 43 as well due to the molded swim platform.

forgot about the 44 OL as well as some used 46 OL in the classifieds...both nice pieces as well..Different ride and attitude vs other boats mentioned due to their layup. You will feel a little more on the bottom end as far as ride goes but the speed increase over its competitors is 5-10 mph faster. Everything is a give and take, and the 44OL is one of my favorites..just cant afford it.
