Not trying to argue..just stating my opinion, and we all know they are like a$$holes, everyone has one
A 37OL with staggered 575's runs 90, not side by side like yours was which is the same as a T/S gun. The 37 Expoxy boat with 525's also ran 90. The 37 with stock 500's runs right around 80 which is also true for the T/S Gun. The 525 Guns normally run 84-86 everyday. This is just from my experience, but not having owned them.

Sorry, i meant non epoxy boats (trying to compare apples to apples) and side by side boats.

What does a 37' AT run for speed? Nor Tech 38'?

Now that I think about it, I recall a long time OL owner telling me that his 37 that was a side by side set-up was faster than his other 37 that was staggered.

Man this thread hasn't really explained any of the differences other than some are built better than others, but nobody says why.

What is the difference in construction layup of each brand?

What is the difference in materials used for each brand?

Which one spins out easier?

Which one is easier to drive?


I kind of like the 37AT. Did I read something about this hull being a new apache hull at one point, but was "adopted" by AT. What is the story with the 37AT and Apache connection? Or am I just imagining things.

I thought we summed it up. The 39 Cigarette is the best overall boat for that size and unlimited budget. The Nortech is a close second, but suffers in the looks dept. The 37 Ol while nice is not in the leauge of the others due to age. All three boats are winners. it all depends how much $$ you want to spend and what your personal preferences are. Any one of the three mentioned are excellent choices.

Questions:

1.) By "Epoxy boat" do you mean that there was only (1) 37 Epoxy stilleto made or (1) Epoxy 37 made with 525's?

2.) By Experience do you mean that you have ample seat time running Cig 38 TS's with 500's and 525's and you have run both types Epoxy and Non-Epoxy Stilletos?
