Hey Rik, its basically just a straight shaft that goes thru a special CV joint that we're adapting to our own use. We designed our own strut and rudder using what we learned off of our 36' sportfish that has a similiar drive. We casted the mold so it will be able to use an Arneson, or a Trimax also so the customer can choose what he wants.
Hey guys, as far as the Express Regatta goes, I was thinking of having a big Express only meet out at Gull Island or somewhere similiar, and then maybe booking a big outing at one of the restraunts on the water (Jacks, Mac-n-rays, Big river grill, beachclub, etc,etc) More, or less just keeping it as a big get together for people to exchange ideas and for them to get a look at other peoples Express Cats. Anyone thats interested email me with your info and I'll start putting together a list

Hey everyone, I would like to personally invite everyone with an Express Cat to the Smoke on the Water poker run - weekend of June 7,8,9th in Grand Haven / MI
Last year we had a blast and were going back and sponsoring it again this year.
Register early and I'll make sure that we have all of the Express' docked together.
Anyone that wants info, email me and I'll hook you up.
Later all,

Come on Boot!! Lets show all those monkey see, monkey do cat owners out there what Express owners are made of!!!
Phatkat, I would love to go for a ride on your cat, and I hope to see you there.
Theres a hotel called the Harbor House Inn of Grand Haven, its under 1 block away from the event tent and the boardwalk. Its a bed and breakfast, prices are around 130-160 per night but its beautiful and best of all its walking distance. You DON'T want to have to be driving around the main drag of Grand Haven with 10,000+ people in and around town. Take it from me, your walking distance from the event and several very nice restraunts, and a few bars.
Email me if you want any more details.
Thanks all,
