The choice is yours.
Do you still loose space with the 700/nxt trans and drive with short stagger?

Personally I'm sick of it too.

And as I've said before I would absolutely consider owning a NT; they are fine boats; as are Cig's and others; different boats for different folks. But I certainley wouldn't be "shocked" to see one brand choosen over another.
This^^^ I don't see how anyone who loves powerboating can bag on Cigarette. I have too much respect for the brand and the icon who created it. Better not to say anything at all.

Nor-Tech is quickly climbing that icon ladder as well, appealing to a different segment of the performance boating community.

Both are at the top of their game thanks to innovative leadership. We should be thankful this is the case.

Have you ever done one with a full stagger and put the gen over the tube behinde the forward motor? kinda like OL has done think I saw a Donzi like that to.

I think Nortech and Cig are the top V manufacturers in today's market as far as overall build quality. They may build them old school, but thats fine with me.

Without a doubt. Like NT, OL is continually bringing out new models. Hustler is now famous for their 50' triple diesel V and their new(relatively) 39 Rockit. Plus their build quality is right there with the best.
