    My dad has a buddy that is factory sponsored by BassCat. Awhile back, they gave him their latest boat with a special blueish gray Evinrude on it (I think it was 300hp). That boat would run 100+ gps with maybe 4 inches of hull in the water. Wicked fast but scared the sh*t out of me.

    BassCat's are some of the best if not the best bass boats out there.

    As said, what hurts is the Insurance gods of the world write policies all day long for $300ish/yr for a 20' waterski with an outboard clamped on. It really frustrates me to hear how "Risky" the cats and offshore boats are.
    How is it that they are getting insurance for a 100 mph boat for $300 or even $400 a year? One of the first things the insurers ask is what the top speed is.
