Thanks Dave,
The deck mold is finished and the hull has about one week to go. I should have photos of a completed hull and deck in about 3 to 4 weeks.

when i bought my 33 eliminator i looked at all of them spectre,american offshore and i chose the eliminator for the quality i have been to the eliminator plant in california and it was impressive
as far as a cabin why not have speed and a cabin the best of both worlds

WELL I MIGHT AS WELL GET MY $.05 IN................ There is a cat here with inboards....never saw that, another person that compares a 25 ft with a 36 ft..I guess it's nice have two...but they are apples..but a macintosh with a delious apple are not comparable.
Now the person who asked for an answer as to which boat to buy......lotsa should no less that you did before you posted

Enticer... ain't that the truth!! How about the Arneson boat with surface drives could that be considered inboards??? semi??

Speed, I think Jay has a 30 coming off the line on friday for testing. He personally tests every boat that leaves the factory. He will not (no matter how much you beg) release the rig until it is tested and complete.

Any thoughts on what your going to do with your Donzi?

Hey Terry! How are you? My 2 good friends are waiting for 2 new 50 Nortechs. For the other people on this board these 2 50's are both going to be complete jaw droppers. One boat has triple 1,000 blower motors and the other one has triple torque engineering V12's. Both owners are very good friends and very excited. The one with blower motors has art of design graphics which are most impressive. I heard Spectre is also going to release a 33 and 40 very shortly. As for me, Tom gave me the numbers on the new 36 cat. I am really impressed with the Skater. Do you have a 36 Nortech cat going to NJ?

36spectre Thanks for being so kind on the reponse...but they aer many worlds apart. I have rode in both. The 25 ft is defintely a rough ride, yet smooth compared to a v-bottom. The only 36 spectre I rode in was at the Miami boat show...I couldn't reaaly tell how they rode. The owner/driver was afraid to do know test drive and all. My wife leaned forward and asked if she could drive....she is the one that wanted to something happen. We want to move up to a 36 to 38 ft cat from the 33 ft we have now. Do want to ride in a few more...kind of used to the Eliminator ride. Which I feel is a more solid ride because of the tunnel design, besides more weight. The old saying the heavier the boat the better the ride.........along with the slower the boat. have to give and take for what you want.
