he said 25-29 not 36....

and the answer is still no... west coats cats tunnels aren't very deep and they have those funny pod things in there too... neither is ideal for offshore.. not too mention there aren't very many 25-29 cats i would take into true offshore conditions..... maybe a 28 skater...

I was on the beach when the Eliminator race boat disintegrated in Ft. Lauderdale. I agree with the No. 28 Skater / 30 Spectre / 30 AMT / 30 Motion would be your best bet.

I thought this might be the case, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. I'm looking for I/O power, so that rules out many of the East Coast cats in this size, and the larger ones are out of my price range. I guess that means I am back to the V's.
