Jasman, didn't Nortech set up a used 43 Black Thunder with tripple 440 Yen Mars and Pulse Drives? How did that finally work out? Last I heard it was in mid sixties and negative trim was an issue.

Bob, the speed issues was the Pulse drives. That 43 Thunder should be going alot faster. I heard alot of plowing and bow dive.

Jassman I agree on the different thing 100% especially with mercs pricing. Shifter has been a lot of help with questions and such for me as well, good luck with the decisions and you new boat is super sharp!

Thanks Hard ON, Nortech did a fine job, and all the guys that work there are truely good people, they take the time to talk to you and explain what they are doing. To me its an uphill battle for these non-merc guys, they need more recognition, then sales, then more service area's, they are priced right, but everybody is afraid to take a gamble, Im trying it on my next Nortech.

Anyone know what Weismanns and Tri-maxs web sites are, I allready have Arneson, thanks Jeff

Jassman if you find the site to trimax could you pass it on as well! Now I was drinking on the last poker run, but I believe I saw a 43 nortech with trip yanmar diesels and i think xrs trip set up? I do remember the diesels for sure though They had like 250-300 hrs on them and no trouble out of it.

guys, for Trimax info go to www.zf-marine.com and then select "surface drives" in the left-hand menu... If you require some additional information, I believe there is some more on Fabio Buzzi's website: www.fbdesign.it
