I have seen the very colorful 35' cat that Chris Merrill has had out on Lake Michigan a few times last year. It's a very sharp looking boat and is very fast. I think he has a pair of 598cid natually aspirated engines in it with some beefed up Bravo One drives. I have always known Chris to be very good with glass work. I do not know much about that 35' cat he has other than how quickly it runs, but I can tell you he has many years of experience with fiberglass and has fixed a lot of damaged offshore boats for people for several years in the past since the late 70's early 80's. I have never bought a boat from Chris, but as far as I know Chris has always been fair and honest with his customers from what I have heard.
