Chris,
This was a beautiful boat. Congrats. I love the paint scheme. I really liked the copper one next to it as well. But, thought it could be a trendy thing that could come and go. Your boat was beautiful. I can't beleive that was gel coat color.

I did order a 34 with the same color hull. I did decide to paint the under side of t top black but I wanted gloss finish. Although, it was a tough choice because yours looked so good. I have been considering Nor tech for about 6 months and have decided to pull the trigger Friday. I am not setting the boat up for all fish though. I am so impressed with fit, finish and ride. They all 3 are right at the top.

I will change the interior colors up. Loved the new logo as well.

Good luck! Can't wait to here the fish story's! We need proof!

Wow the bilge, the wiring, and that seachest is absolutely immaculate... Congrats!

One question though, what was the reason for going to the deck with the forward T-Top support legs??!?!?! So much thought was put in this machine and those legs should have been integrated into the console somehow... either way im jealous

I thought the same thing. Such a sick boat, the only thing missing is some chamois holders. The only flaw is those tower legs.

Tower legs?

There was a lot of discussion on this topic and ultimately we were not willing to sacrifice the strength by attaching the legs to the console. The legs are through bolted to the deck. It is a Large top and 3 out of the 4 built so far have full towers or and observation top. With the legs on the console and high cruise speeds in rough seas we felt it was not a matter of if, but when it may fail.

Also, if you sit at the helm it will better help you understand the protection and ergonomics offered by the large console. Placing the legs on the console would have negated about 8 inches of the width. Nor-Tech is a custom build company and if you want something done a little different they would be happy to do so.

Thanks for the compliments. I can't wait to bloody her decks.

Congratulations, you must be thrilled to finally take delivery. Can't wait to see the first report of a 100+ mile run in the gulf and a bunch of big tuna in the box!

The bilge was very well thought out and looks amazing in person. There are six pumps and 5 are in use for livewells and tuna tubes. The 6th is a back up that can be used to power any livewell or tuna tube.
The tower legs were a non issue walking along side the console.

Great boat Chris and it was nice meeting you on Sunday.

Amazing boat, congrats Chris, good to see you again. Those boats are one of the most plush/softest rides out there...Alden and I had some fun running his boat.

That must be such a tease to finally have your boat but not be able to use it immediately.
