You must have gotten excited with that light grey one parked out front Norris Marine in Palm Harbor. I almost drove off the road.

Invc 40’ at Dick Norris is listed for $695k. Checked it out myself a couple weeks ago. Looked like it was in stock for awhile. Parts/wash down hoses showed weathering and discoloration. You’d think it would be gone the 1st week it was delivered.

I can knly speak speak for the Freeman 37VH I been on.
same experience at Miami - seems the worst thing about INV are some of the employees - the guy Dave I spoke with was as humble as Trump and more irritating than a hemorrhoid - said we could go on a ride if I had my wallet. I did, and my shoes, so I just walked away. That said the set up with the boat is awesome - looks too. However, $695k is nuts - especially when INV resale seems to be weaker than other semi custom boats and what else that you can buy - notably a boat with more amenities if that's what you're after. Then again all new boats have gotten out of hand. That coffin box size isn't bad, the fact it's so big with one opening is - they should have an option for a divider in the center and a door that opens from either side. Waiting to see how the new v8 300s work on these boats - should have info on them soon. Can't blame them for wanting to sell them for top dollar if they have buyers - I just don't think there will be that many to support the prices as more cat options come on the market. Many would rather pay more now than wait 2+years. I keep riding these cats - love the room and layouts - and expecting a dreamboat ride and unbelievable efficiency - but haven't been impressed enough to spend more than 2x what I'd have to sell my boat for.

South Jersey Yacht Sales in New Jersey just became a dealer for Invincible. We have been testing our new 37 in frigid and rough conditions. Here is the video. Fast and considering the conditions to maintain a 35 knot speed, impressive. We also had a professional cat race boat captain out for a ride and he was truely impressed with the performance



Check out the South Jersey Yacht sales facebook for the video. Three are also plenty of great videos on you tube

Just working at building my business. Have bad lower back problems so totally put boating on the back burner. Always had issues with my neck but recently its all lower back. I have had so much pain for a few weeks I couldn't even get from the bed to the shower in the am without help. im 8 weeks in to it now with my lower back (2 bulging disks and 1 herniated) Had a nerve block and 1 epidural with not much relief. I couldn't do anything but lay in bed for the first two weeks. I probably need surgery at this point but I don't want to do it I'm just resting and using lots of ice and hoping it gets better

Been there done that. You have the right idea - avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary, and avoid pain killers. On the other hand find a good orthopedic Doc and try anti-inflammatory medication and/or a round of steroids. Waiting does not really do the trick, get help.

get in the pool....your doc who did the epidural should be able to do PRP or a stem cell procedure....epidural corticosteroid injections put out the fire and allow you do get into physical therapy....corticosteroids dont heal things. Fax me your mri if you want me to take a look and give my opinion.

Had to get some percoset. Only thing thats helped me endure the pain. For two weeks I had to crawl back and forth to the bathroom like a hunchback and lay in a fetal position in bed. I refuse to take them all day long. I'll wait until the end of the day after work when I can't put up with it anymore and take one or two and that's all

I rode a 40 cat today with quad 400s with a friend who is considering a purchase. The boat is massive with tons of storage and gets the same economy (about .95) weather you go 30 or 50 mph. Ride is very dry, although not as soft as the Freeman I've ridden, nor as soft as my YF. But very impressive boat and I'd be happy to own one.
