Default The deal is done.

As long as it passes the survey tomorrow, witch I'm sure it will. I am driving to Nortech to pick up my new to me 5000 vee hull Nortech next Thursday. So if any of you see a white F350 cc dually pulling a 42 Sonic south from VA or North with a 50 Nortech broken down please stop. Or if you live in the Fort Myers area and want to drink a beer or 20 Friday night into Saturday, I cant stay long in Fl. I have to get back to the shop some time Monday.

I know I said I was getting an Outerlimits and I still want one but I couldn't pass up this boat and I can't find an OL I like for what I can pay. So in 3 years the madness will start again, but by then I'll be able to get a 39 with stock power going over 100 cheaper then.

I have never ridden in a Nor Tech but the ones I have seen are incredible.Post some pics of your new toy if you can.

Thanks I just want to get this season under my belt without popping a motor or any major thing, I just spent 20K on new lifts and 3k getting a 500 gal. gas tank at the house for this boat. If I pop a motor now I'll have to pay somebody to fix it because I am to busy with bikes to work on it and my wife will have my ass.

Yes it is too much boat but you only live once, as far as I know. Lapse of Reason was the only thing I could think of when I bought my 42 Sonic, so I think I'll name this one the same. Yes it's got steps but I think I'll be OK, were going to see what some 5 blades will do on it. It went 98 with some old school 4 blades from 1999 so maybe it will do 100 plus on some new props.
