oop. my bad. sorry.Originally Posted by vtec
thanks for the input, now get back to work!
I don't think a pad on a cat is that big of a deal. The big thing about putting a pad bottom on a vee boat is for stability, although they are faster. It gives the boat a bigger footprint, which in return can help make it more stable. A cat already has a wide footprint.Originally Posted by vtec

The Shadow cats (and others) have a "pad" on the keel(s) line.
Skaters don't have a pad.
Different schools of thought.
Now....could they put a pad on the CIG to make it faster?
Here's an example of a padded bottom, but I don't see how it would make the boat faster.Originally Posted by THEJOKER
You Can Kinda See The Pad On My 26 C/c Scarab About 10' Long By 8-10 "NOT AS WIDE AS THOSE ^^^^^
Good point.Originally Posted by offshoredrillin
I have stayed quiet on the Fountain fans until now! I am getting really annoyed at the fact that everytime I start following a thread on this board, it gets hijacked by the JACKAZZ Fountain followers. Fountain builds a good boat but I don't need to hear you guys proffessing your faith to everyone. You guys are becomeing the Jahovas Witnesses of the board! Eventually everyone will close the door and not listen to any of you.
Sorry I just had to vent. This was started as a Cigarette thread right?!
I totally agree Tom. It seems as though in every thread about a freaking boat as well. Not just this one.Originally Posted by Tom A.
The point I was trying to make was if you chnage the original hull design to a padded bottom , what is it? That would be like me saying my 28 would be the fastest 28 in the country if I added a pad to it.
I think it goes both ways. 1-2min in search didn't take long to see the other side. Here is a nice thread started by a repectable Cig guy and someone has to start rippin on Fountain...see post 14.Originally Posted by Tom A.
This Fountain CC is GETTIN' IT!!
If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. For the most part it is all in fun. If not, ignore is there for your use.
I won't lower myself to have an avatar that pisses on OL. (what a knob ) They build a good boat. Just not as fast as Fountain and most likely never will
