Default Cobra Cat

How are these boats at speed as far as stability etc. Heard they chine walk pretty bad.

Looking at late model 30'

I am pretty sure they are the same bottom as a 31 Cris Cat, 31 Awesome, 31 American Offshore...if so I have been 132 with the same bottom. It was a 31 Awesome, no chine walk...its a cat they shouldnt chine walk. The boat doesnt really get aired out like a Skater, they run pretty wet but very solid rough water boat.

Thats good to know. I am not experienced with cats, but am trying to get into the fraternity.

Did the molds keep changing hands, or did they make a lot of molds?

there were many copies of the original. I want to say the Chris Cat was the first, but could be wrong. When compared to a newer cat, they are slower. But, like I said very good rough water performers.

Might be good to have a "slower" hull for my first one so that maybe I can get insurance.

This one is just supposed to run in the 90's, but is reported to have broken 100 before.
