There are trade offs. Eliminators have the center pod and have almost zero porpoise. However they are scary boats in offshore rough water. I have owned center pod tunnels and they are great lake boats. I prefer that style for cruising under 100 mph even in rough lakes. A good tunnel cat (and there are many lousy cats and few great cats) will have an incredible ride over 100 mph. They will eat up rough water and carve turns at high speed. The 36 Spectre is a great hull and race proven.

The Spectre 30 and 36 do have some minimal mid range hop as most cats do. I can take you for a ride in either boat and you will not know there is one. The 32 has 5 steps and has the hop designed out of it as does the new 42.
Didn't seem to cause the Spectre 30 and 36 from winning multiple world championships, kilo records, and Powerboat Magazine Product Excellence Awards though....................

Jay sold his cat line to Scot Conrad in California. I don't know if he has a website though.
