Default How many triple diesel/arneson 50's were built?

I know there's not much discussion on the Nortech forums anymore, Terry's gone, and all they care about is building center console's , but does anybody know how many diesel 50's with arnesons were built, and how many are still stateside?

The only one I know of off the top of my head is Bob the builders...

There is one in Ft lauderdale on a lift next to Pier 66. Navy hull, older model with triple 315 HP diesels with bravos. There was a guy that was a dealer in NH on Lake Winni that built a white triple 315 diesel/bravo boat then built a 36 NT.

The diesel boats are great for the right user but just a tad slow for the poker run crowd.

Just looked at a map. I saw that all the way across the channel from the restaurant and thought it looked like a big old 50 nortech. Could almost make out the big nortech on the side
