The only people that try to argue V vs Cat are the people that have never ridden in a cat.

It was a ride that I'll never forget.

All that I can say is that....IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was unbelieveable how the speeds obtained felt so effortless. In my opinion (just like last year), MTI stole the show. The new Bud Select turbine boat and the Mecedes boat were the coolest stuff there.

Thanks again to everyone!!

Hey Old, I also got my 1st ride on a cat! Terry Sobo took me out in the Nor-Tech 36! very cool the way they ride. Awesome the way U feel the acceleration. Thanx again Terry! Tracy

Wow...this is making me feel a lot better about my recent purchase of a cat. The buyers remorse is quickly fading, just don't mention insurance and I'll stay in that state of mind.

Thumbs up Re: My first ride in a CAT!!!!

I went from a 42 Fountain Lightning to a 44 MTi and now a 55 MTI. I would never go back to a V hull again.

No, some jackazz at my party decided that they needed the E-Dock shirt that you gave me more than I did...but you already knew that.



Yep, I met Little g and G-spot at last years shootout. It's hard to meet nicer people than them!!!!


I will confirm that the gps recall did say 130. Not bad for twin 700's!!
