She's a prize. The only thing of value is not included. The trailer. Maybe some one can build a bigger house on it and float it to Key West as a live a board.

This Cat had no resemblance what so ever to the Aronow, It is a different design. Just like the HSB ( High Speed Boats) a private contractor bids to Govt and then builds boat. They are titled as a non-standard.

It looks like those two work as planned. The other clearly didn't work out. Its obvious what the one on the right is, any ideas what the left one copied?
