Default 38' Nor Tech feedback

Looking at a 38 Nor tech vee. Anyone had experience with these boats. Ride, speed etc. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I've driven one. It rode very well even though it was a F-2 boat with no cabin. The boat rode level and landed smoothly. There was no shake, rattle or movement at all in the boat even after a sustained period in the air. It ran in the upper 80s with twin carbed 500HPs so it was not the fastest setup, but it was consistent and the handling never got scary. All-in-all, I'd say it impressed as me one of the more solidly constructed and easy-to-drive fast vees in that size range.

The rigging and the finish were impeccable even though the boat had about 15 races on it when I drove it. I can't really give more insight, but perhaps Stinson can. I think he's had more experience with them. I don't know how many others have had experience with them. You don't see them everyday.

Dp you have any specific questions or concerns (maybe that's not the right word)?
