There is, of course, one exception to that. The old Powercats were originally built in Bellflower, Ca....but that was back in the late 50's and early 60's, so maybe that doesn't count.

Without a doubt the best center pod "cat" I can think of is the Talon, but, of course, that one came out of Florida, I believe....

But isn't that talon at least the basis for nearly all the west coat cats in the 25-28 range?

No I think they are derivatives of the Eliminator in one form or another..... I have no idea where the HTM came from....

The center pod on the Talon isnot near as deepas the sponsons.

So at 90mph or so when were finally packing air on my 377 Talon, the center pod never touches the water until you run in and out of the very rough water !

the 25 talon and the 377 talon have much different center pods, the 377 only has a pod in ib/ob form the I don't believe the eggbeater version even had a center pod
