If these are your only 2 choices I'd have to go with the SW 36 over the NV. The SW 36 is larger and twice the motor. The NV had a lot of features that the SW 36 doesn't have but it burdens the boat down with too much weight for the size. I'm not a fan of steerable outdrives either and never will be.

thanks, any suggestions for a great starter boat, either gas or electric, in the 200.00 to 500.00 dollar range?

In that price range, the CEN Racing Aqua-Jet, Aquacraft/Hobbico Nitro Hammer and the very soon to be released Aeromarine Mean Machine 18. Use the rest of the money for whatever else you'll need as far as support equipment.

Whatever you do dont get the nitro-vee. I have one and it sucks. Many problems. You would need to do a lot of upgrades which is not worth it.
