Default My first ride in a CAT!!!!

Big thanks to Dave Scott (KiloKat) for hooking me up with my first ride in a cat. Dave introduced me to David Woods and they got me out on the 39 MTI with the new Merc 700's and the new drives. The weather didn't cooperate on the first try (we pulled out of the slip and it started pouring...the only rain the entire weekend!!), but Greg (OSO LittleG) told me to come back and we did get out. 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!!

Craig
