If I wanted to spend 110K. I would stop and think TOO OLD has one hell of a sonic for sale he's done everythiing but the motor I think, get the boat run it and then pick out your power and I am sure it will not cost you more then 110 total. Just my 2 cents.

JROMY2,

On your interest rate question, I was able to get 90% financing on the Baja at 6.9% this past July.

JROMY2,

Joe's (Audacity) AT is awsome as well. And i know he has it really dialed in. In fact Joe, I should get my 32' over to you and let you dial it in for me as well. I should be going faster but right now have too much slip. Turning 30" Bravo 1 lab finished at 5300 rpms at 83.3 in fresh water. That works out to be 18-19 % slip. I haven't tried different props or anythign else for that matter so i know that if i get the efficiency down to 10-11% i should be 88-89 mph. I just haven't bothered to spend anytime getting it dialed in. I'm usually out parting too much .

Anyways my whole point is that in my humble opinion the 32' AT is an awsome all around great boat.

actually your boat/mine does NOT run well at 89 with the configuration we have...can it???yes can you use it.....not really!....weight distribution vs power will not allow it

Joe,

are you telling me that because of the the way the boats weight distibution is set, that 83-84 mph with a really good hole shot is what I should be expecting? I was just going on the prop slip calculation and thought that if I have the right drive height and right props I should be in the upper 80's and still have good hole shot characteristics.

ActiveThunderTodd,

Any chance you talked to the factory?

Audacity - I'm very interested in the Active Thunder Boats. Like I told Todd, right now the biggest thing holding me back is getting rid of my Checkmate...know any buyers?

audacity,
care to elaborate on what you mean?
are you saying it's hard ot get on plane with your existing power & drive configuration? or it becomes unstable at this speed? or what?
