I always thought of a #6 as a surface piercing drive.

It bums me out why anyone still would prefer a No6 or a Z drive for the matter.

I've owned several cats and would go with the ad
sd 7 package for the 46k versus the 60k for the 6 drive.but I would expect to get hit if I resold it

I agree that Arnesons (bravo conversion) are number one choice on my current boat and the next one I buy. Second would be the BPM (prob never be able to afford a boat with them though!), then the #6, the INDY, and SCX.
