Question I wonder......

Who’s BIG cat would be the fastest, if you put in the same power, (Merc’s 1075 for example) in it:



The New OL 50 cat

The Nor-Tech 50 cat

The MTI 55 cat

Skater's 46 cat

Mystic's 50 cat



And let the manufacturer select the drive that works best with their hull.



Who do you guys think would be “Top Cat”?

Dean

WOW i just checked this thread at lunch and 57 views and no opinions? I'll venture out on the limb and say that the Mystic 50 would be the fastest and probobly the best riding boat also, next to an Apache of course!

Well, my guess is that not too many people are fortunate enough to have first hand experience with any of those boats.

you think with nearly 7 feet less of running surface the mystic would out "ride" a 55 MTI?

i would say the mystic probably would be the fastest as well, but there are too many different variables here, canopies, huge open cockpits, different running lengths, cabins and what not...

I am leaning towards the Mystic,I am guessing its lighter than the Skater,unless they redesigned the Skater ,made it lighter,cut down the deck etc.

The Nortech is heavy.

The Outerlimits is too new and not proven.The same way the Ballistic boat wouldnt run a #.

MTI could be ,havent heard anything on the 55's.

Again weight and lenght will play a roll
