UT.. Just in case we still build some pretty nice V bottoms too!
Everybody else has 1/4 canopies and we want to be different. Our stlye gives better visibility along w/ wind protection and the guy in the center of the back seat won't get blown out of the boat. That's our partial canopy 50 in the picture, the problem with that is that you have to eliminate the bubble in the deck and then you don't get a cabin. Yes we will have one at the Miami show. Sorry Catman this one's a sports car.

Salesmanship – Sorry, I’m a little confused. Are you talking about the 36’ cat in the first part (where I have divided your quote)? If so, could you elaborate please. I currently have quarter canopies on my 26’ cat and love them. Ride on others boats, get the full wind and spray in the face – and end of loving my canopies even more. Probably just the angle of the pictures above, but I don’t see much difference in your design.

I realize being different is a good thing, especially for a custom builder. But form should still follow function – shouldn’t it?

Don’t take me wrong here, I really got excited by that first picture, the way you split the cabin and the back seat layout. Going to try and trick my wife into spending some time on your boat at the Miami show.

I'll try and post this picture.
Yes I was talking about the 36. I would compare it to a car's windshield in a covertible. You sit completely behind the glass.
The other boats that have a cabin have a bubble deck and offer only a fairing or wind deflector. If you look closely, the humps on either side of the windshield are pretty much the same shape as a 1/4 canopy. The windshield then bridges the gap creating full protection. Even the mirrors are designed to act as deflectors for the passengers in the outside rear seats. Outside of a full canopy I believe this is the most wind free design on the market.
Love to see you in Miami.

Wow, that is unique – I like it! Couldn’t see that from the other picture. Also, I really like the engine hatch with he integrated scoops. Looks bad a$$!

Thanks and please keep me updated with any new data that you guys publish.

I recieved 2 calls today asking if we are a "Nor-Tech dealer" or not "Nor-Tech dealer" based on this thread. I know OSO frowns on plugging business on here.....but here is goes:

YES! We are a PROUD NOR-TECH DEALER!!



Thanks Trond & Terry for the honor!

Hey Boys!

That 36 is one sweet boat, I saw it at the Lauderdale show, very nice. Also, Terry is one.. gentlemen.

PS Hey Dave & Frank how are you guys? When are you boys going to the New York Boat show? Maybe we can go to Chelsea Piers after the show. Let me know.....
