OL builds an awesome performance boat, stay with what ya know.

My 2 cents

Sunsation has had great success with the concept in 28, 32 and 36 footers.

OL is there to build boats however the owners want them built, just another boat brining in revenue for them!

I am just glad its not one of those LAME CC's! LOL! If more performance boats had cockpits like a Black Thunder the whole family could enjoy them!

Who has the pictures of the Apache that was made into an open bow? If you want to bring the whole family you don't have many options other than the 80' NT.

Just sayin...love OL boats, open bow image just doesn't work for me. Saying no to $1.0m in revenue vs years of brand / image building seems logical. Again want to clarify; I'm a OL fan big time.

No sweat, usually you are the authority on NT's so that is why I questioned it! Yes the OL will be faster but 90 is a strong number for diesels on a big heavy boat.
