I'm assuming that this boat will be at the U.S. Open Water Ski Racing Championships this weekend on Mission Bay in San Diego. Todd haig should be giving it a good work-out in the men's Open class. Then, the following Saturday (October 22), I believe Nordic will be bringing the boat to the Parker 300 Enduro. Should be fun to watch.

Nordic is pretty much top of the game right now as far as I'm concerned! The boats they are putting out consistently, are unreal and just keep getting better and better!

I think Cole's boat (one on the back of the RDP shirt) has got this one covered though.. ;) :D

Wonder why they didn't run the M8 Drive and what they are going to put that on...??? Unless they borrowed this out of the 43...

It had to do with the ability to run a 6 lower in the water. That's what was said when we were in there when they were rigging it.

Mercury's M8 drive is really intended for larger boats than a 21-footer -- mostly big offshore cats and vee. Nordic has also had extremely good success in the past with several of their race boats using the Six Drive, so rather than take a chance that a different size and configuration of gearcase might adversely change the ride/handling characteristics of an already perfect set-up, the Six was the drive of choice.

After watching the Nordics in the Parker Enduro the last couple years I gotta admit, those fuckers run. My buddy and I are big Schiada fans and we both agree that the Nordics make them look pretty bad in the speed department in the 21 foot range.

Depending on the drive they put on the 1350...it has about 100 more HP than coles boat and should be faster.

The Nordic with that 1350 will be more than a throw down 21 v drive Schiada...the engine drive package is approching 200k alone...now add a composite vaccum bagged hull, rigging, guages etc etc etc youre past a Schiada...imo

i went to australia for the ski race worlds. there was only one boat there with a 1350, it was a force F21. the boat ran 100mph and it looked/sounded like the thing was turning MAYBE 3800rpm.

i believe this motor is FAR superior to ANYTHING ANY other engine builder currently has out. i have no doubt that this motor is capable of a lot more power and that pump fuel is the limitation. Give the thing better fuel, a dyno tune and you would see some astounding numbers.
