I agree use TNT to rig.

I guess some of the problem is the chioce in riggers...and if the co. is not one of the better ones, and down the line as the boat is sold with work that was possibly not as good as at the factory, that could hurt the name brand.. just my .02

Yep that is a good question...half the fun is the build and customization/personalization is what sets one boat apart from the other. I guess as a for profit industry you can understand how the economics of working with constants translates to the bottom line.

This was all good spirited conversation right, no hard feelings? That is how I took it.

Merry Christmas to all....whether you are a Cig, NT or Apache fan!

true. last year when I was looking for a new hull for my gellner 572sc and konrad ace drive set up, I looked at a few hulls and one of them said who would rig it. I said some pros whats funny is this co never built a 28 so mine would of been the 1st. I walked cause the price was much higher than the other hulls I was looking at. they still don't have one built and I am happy that I went with a used saber 28 the pro glass guys love the hull and how it was made, I wished I called on a new hull with them. oh its got a pottie closet too. four my wife. for rigging I talked to other konrad boaters and kurt from konrad too. so we should be right on plus my partner rigged his 46 skater for v8s then back to turbines.so we did our homework and will see how we did this spring since I go under the knife in two days later .

Wrink the 37 AT is also a nice boat, especially for the coin involved..BTW, did you get to ride on both in KW..
Pat did get me out 4 a nice sea trial,C AT forum!! Appreciated the ride! Could not pull off the Cig ride, some stuff fell apart!!
