Teh Superboat's are really narrow, aren't they, like 7'4" or something??

I also like the Nordic.... fast for the power and handle rough pretty well. And they have a HUGE cabin compared to the others on your list. I watched a couple of them run with us at Smoke On The Water a few weeks ago.... they ran well with the big boys.

But I'd still go with the Pantera if I was making a choice.

Nordic's do run good out here. I heard there's some rattles in them but not verified by me.

I've crawled thru several 28's at various boat shows. Not put together with tinker toys, but not on the level of the Pantera or Fountain either. If the Pantera is a 10 in build quality, the Nordic would be an 8 or so.

When I say "crawl thru" I mean it. I've been asked to get out of boats at boat shows because I stick my nose where they really don't want it!! LOL!! In engine compartments, under consoles, behind dash boards, etc.... I'm picky!!

Sunsation or Pantera will both do well with the power you are talking about, and I have seen/been in both boats with that HP. Pantera will be the better rough water boat. Sunsation will rank better with the wife on amenities.

Don,
Like I said before. If you (Ed) re-tool that 31 cockpit I would be all over that boat. I'm just not fond of the dash design. Now the 26 dash is awsome. I may be calling you for a new 26 if the V handling does'nt work out.

Funny, the guy clearly states his choices and that he will put 800hp in the boat. So why the hell is anyone suggesting 525's and 496's......AND suggesting boats that he hasn't listed?? Stick to the question!

Of your choices, the 29 Fountain with your 800+ motor will blow the doors off of any of the rest.

Happy hunting.
