I will kind of agree with wasabe. If I wasnt confused then I am now. I guess not confused but ...hell I dont even know the word I am looking for. I think it will be the skater but next year I want to ride on both this summer a few times to see what I really like. The skater set up will have to be determined. ITS(Integrated Turbine Service) and I have now talked about either 525's or even the new Vortech. Although I know nothing about the Vortech as of the moment. If the big arnesons are too much we will go with either the lesser ads 6's or the bravo xr's with the ITS package. ITS is saying the big Arnesons will be fine and for the most part will be a bullett proff boat.
How does this sound?

It was a beautiful ride home. Even the girl liked it.

Actually, that sounds pretty damn cool ... and it would prolly smoke most of the latest and greatest coming out of Detroit today.

Turbines are a whole different animal...... You almost have to use Arnesons with turbines, because of the power..... Although, I suggest you fix the drives in place and use a separate rudder..... After that you "tune" the bottom and props to lock in the attack angle....... You can afford to do this with turbines since you have more power than needed and power trim is not as necessary if at all.

T2x we are not putting a turbine in we are thinking of doing this boat with gas motors. The turbine was too cost prohibitive for me at this stage of the game.

Then don't talk to a turbine shop about your choice of drives......

The biggest problem in making set up selections....is not the number or quality of questions that you ask...but rather your choice of sources.....

If you're discussing Skaters.....ask Peter Hledin, Doug Lewis, Johnny Tomlinson...... and VERY few others.

If you're discussing Cigarettes......ask Tres Martin..... maybe Sean Stinson and......ummmm....errr.....
