Why is it that alot of people buys Nortech, especially cats, and then after 15, 25 or 35 hrs they put them for sale?
Just bought a used 3600 with twins 725's, hope I did'nt make a mistake?

They probably want to upgrade to a bigger one.

i will tell you that I am not in the market for a nor-tech right now, but terry still took the time to give me a tour of the factory and another thing I like about nor-tech is when you call them, they call you back. can't say that about alot of companies, it is the small thing like a prompt return phone call that makes me happy. but they co build one hell of a boat 2.

I have not seen a Skater get by me yet.A lot of 36 owners by 43's or build new 36's. I am on my second 36 in the last twelve months and they are awesome boats. Exclusive, you bought a great looking and running boat. It will be the best boat buy you ever made.

Is the skater mutch bigger then the nortech if you compare 36 for 36 or are they the same size?
Does the skater have a nice cabin like the nortech, head on one side and great place for storage on the other side ?
How much faster can a skater be boat for boat, engine for engine?

I took a ride in Randy's boat, I know that we can't compare because of the engines but I was so impress on how cats eat those 3 to 5 foothers cruising beetween 60 to 80 mph!

What a ride that was.
Thanks for your comment, it reasures me alot.
By the way you'll probably be in Key West, so will we,
What is the name of your boat, Iwould like to meet you?

So we're not comparing apples with apples here!

And why did you change your boat for another one just like it?

Nortech is truly a cut above. We just ordered 3 of them at the Ft. Lauderdale show. The boats are now avaiable with TMP EFI engines(up to 1500 HP) from the factory. Give Randy Sweers a call or check out Fastboats.com.

Gator is right, we haven't been touched by a Skater or MTI either. The new 3600 we're building will have TMP 1600 EFI's, and several tricks to make it outperform any other cat on the water. Besides, these boats destroy rough water.
