Thanks guys, by the way, Vonwolske:
I never answered your question as to what distinguishes our cats as ours.
First of all, All of our cats have a body line that runs down the freeboard, following the line of the boat.
Secondly, all of our cats, right on down to the 15 1/2' has a deep "offshore" tunnel, making it good in rough water
Thirdly, the buckets (cockpits) of all of our cats have more room (both standing and sitting) than do cats of equal size.
Hope this answers your question.

Adam; Thanks for the synopsis. Please edit and add some approximate dates.

Also, add some paragraph indentations.

All in all, a good job and interesting reading. If I ever get up your way, I will stop by. Are you going to Miami in Feb?

I am curious what does your 38' with stock 496Ho's and XR's Cost? (Ball Park) Not that I am interested right now but My goal is to one day get a big cat. I have mainly looked at eliminators in the past and have a good Idea of what the 36 runs - cost wise But because of your closeness two me I would like to know. Also I keep my Powerquest 380 at Sassy's Marina and go by there quite often maybe I could drop buy and see what you have to offer. - Ray

You may e-mail me if you dont want to post a price.

You guys that like my dads version will have to forgive me, as he was actually there (and young!) while I was just starting kindergarden. Vonwolske, forgive me but english composition wasn't my best class, just be glad it's me and not my brother or dad (or you SPARK!) that wrote that article, otherwise you wouldn't be able to understand half of what was written, as none of the above were exemplary spellers.
As far as Miami goes, my dad will be down there on vacation (and I'll be up here...on vacation! Starting the first 49' hull) so look for him.
Bye all,
