The 34 Hustler at the show was beautiful. I'm not sure on the price, but that boat was set up nice.

What about the new stepped hull Nordic 32' (?) that's supposed to be on the way? It appears it may be a while but I haven't heard or seen anything firm.

I would say that my priorities are just as you have outlined them with the addition of style. Speed, style, ride, amenities, cockpit room, then cabin room. Ride is not a huge deal as the lake where we boat never sees more than an 18" chop...

Part of my problem is that I want something somewhat unique. The white gel coat with a few colors splashed in doesn't quite cut it, hence my passion for Nor-Tech and Hustler...unfortunately, I have champagne taste on a beer wallet. Keep the suggestions coming...the feedback thus far has been fantastic.

Since you like west coast boats, how about mine: 30' Hallett, twin 525SC's, IMCO, tri-axle trailer, runs mid 80's for $80K. In storage at Lake Mead...

That Kachina is hot....what do we know about them? How is pricing? I was trying to avoid buying new and if they are relatively new, may be tough to find a 'lightly' used one.

Heat, going to Lake Mead next week-end to take pictures to put the boat in the Boattrader, but if you give me an address I'll send you a set. Boat has just had floors re-teaked, new cockpit cover, bimini and both cockpit and full canvas, CMI's, way upgraded sound system. As you know, Halletts resell quickly, so I'm sure the boat will go fast, but I'll send pictures ASAP. This boat was originally built for one of the big Casino owners in LV and nothing was spared.

Take a good look at the Active Thunder......you won't be disappointed!

With the 500's you will be well out of the 70's and the ride will make the wife happy.

I see you are from Midloathian.....have friends there.
