Some like riding blondes, some like riding brunettes and some don't care what they are riding as long as they are riding. It's all good.

But first you need to ride them all to know

Problem is these guys have never been in a 40'+ cat in any kind of water. I know of no one that ever stepped off a big cat and said "I can't wait to get back into a V"....although this might be one case where ignorance is bliss, it will save the trouble of selling the V to buy a cat

Pardon my blissful ignorance, but if these cats are so fantastic, why do so many of them get in this position?

so many? i bet i can put up 5 vees for every cat you can come up with....

so are we talking racing or pleasure here? if we are talking race boats, i would say it is safe to say that there has been way more vee's get wet than cats over the years.... and pleasure, i know plenty of people who have been pitched by a vee, only a select few in a cat (and the cats were all races)...

have you been in a big cat in the rough? or are you just making assumptions by a few photos of upside down cats?

I thought the seats were awsome. That is a perfect boat. But I have my eye on an CRC copy minus the lead and add 1400 HP. As Randy told me theoretical SPEED!!

you won't need the 1400 HP with a carbon fiber hull and canopy... (and reliable is the newer and faster version hull.... 4 MPH )

That must be the one. I didn't know they changed it. But the new 44 race with turbines and trimax is my next boat. MTI one ride will change your life. How's that for a slogan?
