HOPE TO ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE IT SOME DAY...Pat, are you out there??

I have never had an "OH S.HIT!" moment in my AT. I have had a few "WOW, Can't wait to see what happens this time!" moments, but everyone was predictable, and could not have felt safer.

As a 32 AT owner, I have never had a problem with my boat.I am very happy with the quality and workmanship. I have spoken to Pat several times regarding additions to the boat that I was interested in doing, and he has always given me a straight forward answer and always willing to give you that little extra to make sure his customers are taken care of.The 32 is a excellent rough water boat and being that I boat in the Great Lakes area,There are'nt to many things that this boat cant handle. As far as Pantera boats go, I do not know much about them, and would not be able to give you a fair oppinion on there boats.I am sure that you could not go wrong on either one, but for me,I am sticking with my Thunder and would like to get into a 37 in 2-4 yrs from now.

The one thing I dislike about the AT is that the compass is not in front of the driver.
And to me, the compass is a critical piece of navigational equipment.

I never even take the cover off my compass. I rely on the GPS and have a backup handheld GPS.

On mine the compass is in front of the driver on the 37 split seats, I have a Livorsi in dash compass. Like Brian said, dont ever use it, GPS is all I ever need.
