LOL exactly. I am only 5'9....I could jump on the bed and make all kinds of new sexual position with this kind of head room. This is why I am still looking at them

This showed me how they did not understand the marketing process of the product.
It doesn't sound like that guy could have marketed a breakfast burrito at that time of day, much less a 6 figure powerboat at ANY time of day

I don't know the BT market at all, but if they were all brand new for comparison, aren't the 51 OL's & 50 NT's substantiallymore expensive than a 46 BT?

and i will not run any boat at high speed without a vest on
You are correct the old mind set is not relevant anymore in the case of safety life jackets are nessesary to the sport

As far as BT, the niche was a good one ,they failed to capitalize on their popularity when they were on the top of the bubble. When the bubble burst they had nothing left, it is very sad

Jeff you going to KW this year ??

You guys have a great time, drink a few for us, and hopefully next year we will se ya all there.

idk but when i pull up to a dock in a bt every one always ask what kind of boat is it bc it is soo tall and they are only 25 at loto. but bc it is so hight it lean side to side when you are running unless you are doing over 70.

if I remember right for an old thread someone discussed what they had done to address the side to side issue...I think they may have resolved it on the 05 or 06 models...even added the bow thruster which I'm sure helps a lot around the dock with as tall as they are.

There is a thread on sos. The outside chines were lowered, which helped alot. THWL on the boards had the first of the newer hulls from late 06' I believe (orange and purple one, i think it got sold to loto).

Monopoly was the first BT to get a bow thruster. They work great from what I've heard!

I think a 46 ran over 100 with 850s...
