Default 32' DCB at SOTW

Anyone see this boat run? How did it handle the conditions?

Just curious.

Bringing a California cat to western Michigan (The home of Skater) is kind of like bringing a Camaro to Marinello.

Thanks for the information.

I was curious if a 32 cat could handle messy 5' waves. The dealer said they cruised at 65-70 mph, but the boat was not created for waves like that. I would guess one would need at least a 36' to span the waves better.

Glad to hear that all had a fun (and safe) run.

It was 2-4 foot waves. 6' waves on Lake Michigan would be dangerous and extremelly uncomfortable in any cat. Only two cats went out after lunch. 39 MTI and a 46 Skater and neither had a comfortable ride. NK

BTW I own a 32 skater with big power and had I gone out and tried to run hard I wouldn't be here now.
