Does anyone know of a cat, I think it is a 39 or so Ocean Express that is red/white with some blue in it & it used to be named "Super Fine"? I was on Long Island Sound when we saw this cat ripping back & forth. Next thing I knew, the boat was stopped and obviously taking on water.
The local water cops arrived after I called them and I got the passangers onto my boat. They started asking the owner for his registration as he was knee deep in the cockpit and the water crept over the transom. I took the boat in tow only to have the water cops cut my lines because I was interferring.
The Cat ended up 75% under before they figured out they should tow it.
The boat ended up beached in Greenwich harbor for a week or two & then was taken away.
Just wondering what ever happend to it???

But I have started hull number two for the new deck which I hope to be racing in next season!!Yea know what it comes down too though the MONEY!!!!! OH YEA Nick, the number three and four rod's came out off the port motor, He got that fixed went out and lost starboard motor to oil pressure, now pulled both motors, Raised the compression and pulled off the blowers he's putting on 830 cfm holly's to make it more user friendly and try agian next season he had to hard of a time trying to dock it and keeping it running the same. {BOB SHOULD NOT HAVE A PERFORMANCE BOAT.....} LATER SPARK.

Sorry Boot Just found out you can't use Yahoo to post your pictures because you need signon names and passwords. I'll try another site and repost later.
