My point was that they are too narrow so that they can be trailered. To truly capitalize on a cat design IMO the beams should be much larger, but then you couldn't trailer the boat and therefore couldn't sell it to as many people. I believe it was twin vee that made a cat with a 14' beam some time ago. The only way you bought that one was to drive it home on it's own hull. That boat would reportedly eat it up.Narrow? Most Cat boats are some of the widest boats on the market. I personally don't like them, but to each his own.

What are the differences?I will put my world cat 24 up against any 24 ft mono hull boat for must comfortable ride in a true 3ft northern gulf of mexico sea. She is setting no land speed records but I am not afraid of loosing teeth and making chiropractor appointments. there is a reason why alot of the local near shore charter captains are going to cats. Yes they take some getting used to and I will admit I am still getting used to mine my self
Well dang, I was gonna include you on an offshore trip I'm planning but.......you know I run a sea hunt so.....I own a 22' Glacier Bay. It rides like a dream and handles rough seas well. I spent many hours in my buddy's 26' Glacier Bay before I bought mine. I'll never own a vee hull, or even ride in one again, if I can avoid it. The vee hull ride is too rough for my wornout joints.
Talk to Chris Bazor at Grander. Their 40 cat is a beast. He ran one from OBA to the Keys in a day.. You getting out of the Everglades?Any experience with a invincible?
Thinking about it. The 40 is too big. Maybe the 33 or 35.Talk to Chris Bazor at Grander. Their 40 cat is a beast. He ran one from OBA to the Keys in a day.. You getting out of the Everglades?
Freemans are nice, just too long of a wait to buy new. Used ones pop up every so often.Thinking about it. The 40 is too big. Maybe the 33 or 35.
