Thumbs up Nor-Tech....what's in a name.....

I'm tired of seeing Apache's name all over this board....now let's talk about the REAL, best damn built boat on the market today......

Let's hear it from the Nor-Tech fans..........

They ain't the High 5 smilies, but they'll do!

BTW, just what is a Nor-tech?

Oh boy here we go.
Norwegian born Nils Johnsen started building boats when he was a teenager. In the late 80's he designed and built in Sweden what was then the Hi-Tech 5000. In 1990 he and childhood friend, Trond Schou, decided SW FLA was the place to be so they loaded up the mold and moved to..well..a.. Cape Coral. This was the beginning of H.P.B.C., D.B.A., Nor-Tech. I hate to admit it but Nils designs everything in his head. No computer, CAD, just a lot of napkins, cardboard scraps or whatever is handy.
So there you have it.
Thanks,
Terry Sobo
