Looking at a 27' Nordic Thor Deck boat with a 496, are they true tunnels or do they have a center pod? If no pod do the porpoise at slow speeds like other CATS? Will the 496 give the boat enough power or will it feel underpowered loaded up with passengers? Looking for mid 60's -70 for speed.

Thanks

Yes its a center pod boat. And with gear and people the 496 (in any boat) would not be my choice! As to how it handles? There are not many out there. If it was me I would go down to Nordic and drive one, in fact drive as many boats as you can that way your an informed buyer. Don't let these manufactures tell you what you want go and find out yourself. Happy boat buying:)
