Ya, ok!

I have driven both. Took the Tres Martin class and the boat was an AT 37. Plus friends have AT's here, and I owned a TG.
The AT's do handle water well and are nice, but they are not a Cig.

A 37 Ol and a 39 Topgun are not even in the same zip code.

Too funny! That thread was posted all in fun, and it was more fun watching you guys get your panties in a wad.

How bout our last poker run Bill? Activeshack and I were one of the first five boat to arrive at the first three stops including a very rough run across the Ches Bay to lunch. No Top Guns in sight.

All in fun guys....all in fun.

No question the Cig tops the OP's original list.

If passenger space is a concern, even though it doesn't seem like much, I'm pretty sure the Cig is only 8' wide, where as the OL and Nor-Tech are both at least 8'6".

Why #6 vs NXT, I know the 6 is stronger curious why you choose it.

They don't cost what Cigs do either. Slightly used AT's are priced at about 2/3 of what the TG's are.
