Not a bad boat...i believe it is basically a copy of the Skater, Active Thunder builds a 32 version and Motion has one as well. The difference between a cat and tunnel is that a cat works on more "hydrodynamics" (water) and less "aerodynamics" (air). ChrisCat, ShadowCat, Jaguar, are typical Cats and Skater, Cougar, Motion, Spectre, Talon are typical tunnels...the tunnel will run faster, but the cat is a better rough water design, thinks its a vee in rough water!

I've spent some time on a 30 with twin 300s. Nice boat, runs about 102. Just don't over trim. Boy that will get your attention fast.

OTTO has the 36 with the big power. These are quality boats.
