Looks very clean. I've had my eyes on those 31's for years and then got out of boating for while. If I ran across one for the right price I probably would get one though. Do you mind sharing how $$$. So much for sleeping again tonight.

Wow, that was a legend back in the mid '90s.

Kenny Terbrock owned it. He was a consistent Lake O shootout winner and the Dardenne Slough Racing Shootout on the Mississippi.
Can't tell what the engines are in it now but it did have CMC engines back then.

Have fun. Looks like you got the perfect boat for it. I've never been for a ride in a cat and always wanted to. I've had a range of boats from a 21 Lib. to a 42 fount. w/SC trips. What year and power do you have. Also the step bottom - How did that change the character of the boat? Speed I'm sure, anything else?

Those were/are fun boats. They used to build them here on Grand Lake coincidentally. I don't think anyone has flipped more cats than Ed Ferro.......

Have fun with it. There's a REALLY nice clean one on Grand Lake that's for sale. Solid yellow with 750's I believe. Contact "Rare Breed" if anyone SERIOUSLY wants info. It's his brothers boat.

Lets see some more pics of the motors. They look to have been moved forward or mayby it is not a bravo boat and has trannies.
