Ocean rollers four to sixes.
46 foot Vee compared to 46 foot cat.

Do you feel the cat would perform better in these given
examples?

Gerry,

Most can't answer your question because of lack of experience in both. However, boats are like tools in the work bench. There are different tools built for different situations.

My 2 cents: Once you go cat you never go back. Ask Dave Scott why he does not have a "V" in his fleet.

Once I purchased my first cat the TG went on the trailer and stayed there. I now have two large cats a 39 and 40 and currently negotiating for the ultimate 46 to replace the 39.

This subject has been on here before. I just point to one race argentina approx 1998. Alcone in his 2 engine 46 skater kicked butt on the 4 engine 50 ft V.

It was big water over 10 ft. The only race in my 10 yr career where I finally knew what the milling are was for. We had to stay on plane in the milling area to keep from sinking.

Dennis, I consider myself one with lack of experience
to do a fair comparison.
I started this thread with a vague question so as to not "stir it
up".


I went from a 32 vee to a 46 cat. I can tell you it is not
even in the same league, However what if I compared
lets say a 51OL Vee or a 47 Apache to a 46 cat?
Running in big ocean rollers.
