Cool. I'm glad somebody bought the molds and are building them again. Talon sold all the cat molds over the past couple of years and are concentrating on fishing boats. They tried to get me to buy their 18 mold several times, but I just didn't have the coin to swing it. Not that I don't have my hands full already.
The 22's definetly were not as popular as the 26 (which was heavily splashed and the reason they got out of high performance boats). The center pod means this boat will be slower than the Skater, but more family friendly. Your power desires seems to be in line with the boats capabilities, it may be a bit under powered. This is not a boat to be taking out on the ocean.
