hey bud, no offence taken, I wasn't thinking that at all... and yes mine happens to be one of the Kevlar boats... it is just what he (Ross) said it would be, FAST and SMOOTH running, not wet like I've heard other people saying, I think that happens when someone underpowers a cat regardless of what make it happens to be!!! any wide tunnel will ride "wet" untill it starts packing air, this one starts climbing around 70mph, and then takes off like a bat outta hell!!! she's a solid 120++ mph boat with conservative 900SCS and speedy drives... and if I keep going on about it, I will end up keeping it and suffering the consequences!! lmao!!! unhappy wifey!! lol

Here's a few pics. It's a really cool boat but unfortunately been sitting for years and might be more of a project than I need at the moment. Man, what a wide beam for a 30 footer! It's a party barge for sure. It's not going anywhere soon so who knows, might be next winters project.

if you are going to redoing it one thing i can tell you is take all the weight you can out of the front cabin because they are nose heavy and it will bow steer (bad)

Yeah I am sure that boat spent sometime in Rocky Hill CT and was sold at auction when Depetro Kay (sp) closed.

very different looking than mine, could be an awesome boat, agreed on the removal of any weight from the front, but if its anything like mine, the low speed bow steer isn't that big a deal, mind you I only have a half cabin in mine... 32' long 12' wide, one big mean air packing tunnel!!
