My uncle worked and boated out in Pontiac Mi for years on Cass lake, There was a guy out there with a blown big block with 900hp, if memory serves me correctly, 94mph was the #. I remember thinking that's alot for that 22' boat, but he said it was built very tough, and it remained stable at high speeds. I dont think I would get on it though.
That's Sparky's Viscious Cat, a 32'
My friend Jason bought the boat from him this spring. Twin promax 300's, gaffrig monster guages, a cabin in it, a bad assss mitcher T paint job, it's a very sweet boat, I was at his shop tuesday night, and he had the mold back out, and he said he's getting ready to build another one. I like the boat, and Jason loves it and said he will never buy anything other than a cat again. My cat is a 26', and the ride on mine isn'y good till about 80 mph when it packs enough air, the Viscious cat amazes me in the fat that you can cruise along at 40 or 50mph, and it's really smooth and comfortable. Sparky had it up over 110, but I'll let him answer the exact mph #, He raced it in p class stripped down and turned avarage lap times of over 100. When Jason bought it, sparky took off the race hatch, and added a back seat and cabin to it, and It still runs upper 90's, and that's after he dinged his props up and had them sent in for repair, which dropped the rpm's. I think he's gonna buy a brand new set, because he's been working with those to try to get his rpm back and it's just not working out the way he wants. It sure a fun boat though.
Speaking of small boats and Viscious cat's, I love cat's and it's no secret, Sparky is also in the process of tooling up an 18' cat, it's the perfect play boat for me. I could hang it off of my jet ski davit, and go for an after work blast every day. Sparky hurry up and get that mold done, and build one, I want to go for a ride on it, and find me a buyer for my 32. I know of a 18 that's coming out, and I want one!
