Having said this, since the 39 Nortech is as fast as the 38' Fountain and has a more agressive running surface similar to the YF. plus, has a longer running surface than both. And now they are going to make it a more fishable boat.

I studied the geometry of the boat and I can't figure out how it is so fast.

I agree that the boat will cost a little more, but if the fishing layout is done correctly; I would be foolish not to think that this boat will quickly rise to the top of it's class.

It will be a 3 piece, new livewell configuration, added insulated deck boxes and storage. The leaning post and console are being discussed next.

They are a bad ass company that builds som bad go fast boats but they do not lead the way by no means. There are a lot more companies that build some faster boats and way nicer. Not taking anything away from nor tech. Just go to a big poker run and see what's out there the MTI is a bad boat. Skater leads the way in the fastest cat boats. Then if you want to see a really custom look at the statement. Or the mystic so they don't lead they way in big offshore boats they do build a decent boat though.
Now let me say this it's nice that they are building to the fishermen. I contacted them to talk to Terry about building a boat for the ska when they first came out. They did say they would build one but at that point in time they were not going to change the molds for anything they would buy a third party console or leaning post because the team I fished with didn't want a big console. They didn't have a leaning post live well mold yet and didn't see the need in building one. Now this was almost two and half years ago it was right
before the boat shows. Then after the shows they called back saying they would do what it took to make the boat the way we wanted it.[/quote]


Wait a second...do you know how many world records the Nor Tech brand currently holds? And I am 100% against a leaning post livewell.

I was just messin with ye prop. I think its a bad ass boat and has needed a change for fisherman for a while now. I like a big round 100 gallon well built in to my leaning posts and another massive oval transom well my self. Biggest problem with wells is keeping them full and leak proof. My well sucks to much air when its rough because of the steps and the flush mounted pick ups. My well does not stay completly full when running in anything over 2-3' and it sloshes around a bit. Something I need to fix asap. A sea chest would help also cause my rear well looses prime all the time.
As little snags as possible throughout the boat for cast nets. My YF has very few net snags.

X2, a 100 gallon livewell in the leaning post would be perfect. Hopefully that will be an option.

Judging from some of the pics it seems like it would be hard to fight a fish off the transom with the huge gap between the back of the cockpit and the motors. Hopefully this will be fixed or maybe its just an illusion.

the issues that I have with leaning post livewells, and in floor livewells is that they leak when running the pumps keeping bait alive. Tht water runs off all over the guys in the back, into the deck boxes (if not properly sealed and that was addressed) thawing any ice in chum in those boxes. The 120 gallons of transom livewell space should be enough but if you have the dough I think Nor Tech can make it work

I wonder if they have any seavee owners helping with the design? Those boats seem so be near perfect for fishing with the way they do their livewells etc.

The bow looks very tall, will it be similar to a contender or Inv as far as gunnel height? Looks like we are getting a Nor-tech dealer here in Wilmington NC did alden mention anything about when they were gonna open?

They are raising the deck, gunnel height is proposed to be 35" on the bow, tapering to 25" at the stern. 25" at stern to grab a bill and 35" max at bow to allow gaffing or fighting a fish anywhere on the boat. The distance from transom to cockpit will be similar to the new 38 Fountain. We had anglers of all shapes and sizes and that's what we determined to be the ideal height for fishing. Any input is much appreciated.

I do like a deck that is a lot higher than the waterline. To many builders make the decks close to water level and they dont drain for shit. Yellowfin raised theirs when they re tooled the 36 because the boat was designed years ago when there was only light weight two strokers.

Take a look at the fishing layout on the 39 billfish. Put that layout in that hull and now you'll have something both for kingfish and sailfish guys.

Core cell costs twice as much or more depending on what density corecell you choose. If I had to guess, switching to corecell from balsa would cost around an extra $500-$800 in a 35-40' monohull in raw material costs . Not to mention time involved with process changes.

And as far as ride goes, I dont think balsa makes the boat ride better.... it's hull design.

Even though solid glass is an option I've never seen anyone advertise that they opted for this feature on a yellowfin, new or used. I'd also consider vacuum bagged corecell over balsa, but I guess that is just me. I wouldn't consider myself uneducated or a YF basher, just someone who wouldn't by a balsa cored yellowfin over a non balsa cored yellowfin.

For Nortech, something has to be said about a company that leads the market building boats in the 200mph range and now produces center console fishing boats. I don't care for Fountain one bit, but the Nortech sure is sweet.

I believe the balsa is used for sound deadening. It does make for a quieter ride and east coast guys claim it helps reduce noise when fishing for pelagics That being said, if a hull is laid up and rigged properly balsa is a non issue. My shop has been next to YF for many years and I have never seen a hull being cut up which is what would happen if hull bottom core failed

Rob,

For sure the properties of wood absorb the harmonics that lead to noise. A quiet boat sure makes the ride more comfortable and gives the perception of a smoother ride. And yes, if balsa was a problem, we all would have heard about it.
