If this boat sells well maybe Randy will use one of his cat hulls. Cobra boats in New Jersey built a 36' cat CC and it ran really well with trip 300s, I think close to 90.
You guys are on the right track. I asked Randy about that and he said the market was much broader for the V-bottom style, plus he said at slower speed/idle/etc. a V-bottom is a little more manageable.
Randy didn't rule out building a catamaran CC, but he knows from his current customers and what else is out there that the V-bottom style is the way to go to reach more people. He also expects his boat to be one that current center-console customers will "step up to."
I can't wait to see the finished product!

Great looking CC.
Plenty of drink holders and bolsters, looks very nice.
I can't wait to see the cabin lay out. Going to be cool.
Plenty of seating & looks sharp
I love the layout on the boat and the windscreen design is beautiful.
