As a previous owner of a CAT. That went through 8 drives. Taking off from the get go is very critical. Ease it out of the water and when running....keep the props IN the water. 6's are a little over kill, but Bravo's are not enough.......that's my .02 worth

I agree with this 100%. Anything with a tranny over 1200 would still be over kill, but boating with out problems should be what your striving for. Get something with a transmission, Good luck, you'll love your Nortech. Jeff

Add another car a month and get the #6's

It'll be ready for the 1200 Sterling's you'll get down the line! Anything else might limit your re-sale.

A guy on lake winni has a 36 with 525's on #6's. He loves it. It runs around 99. As GLH said, go for the number 6's.

This 36 Nortech cat was put in the water for the first time at the Destin Poker Run.

It has 525's and the NEW Merc drive. I forget what they call it, but it is basically a beefed up XR.

It worked VERY well!

I agree on the Arneson's. Other than docking, I think this be your best choice. 99 mph on a sexy 36 Nor-tech is not all that much too say in my opinion. Those #6 have to rob some power there. Sobo would know best.
Either you or the guy that buys it used is probably going big smoke so get it right from the start.
How can you deny that rooster tail you'll get for a bonus??

What about B-Max drives?? Or as said before, the Konrads seem to be doing well. Ask Biggus... he's got them on his boat.
