I can't really answer that. I saw one as a kid at Fort Apache and kind of fell in love with them. I know they are pig-dogs but I like the big wide platform they provide. I think it will be a great set-up for chilling on the lake or taking it anywhere we want to go. My goal is to set one up like the "none of your business" cat, diesels and arneson 8-10's. I don't want to do 100mph so it is a good fit for me. Other than that, I think it is just one of those things that you have to get out of your system.

They are the best party boat. 10 people in the cockpit is no problem. Giant bed in the cabin. If speed isn't an issue and/or where you boat gets rough, this is an excellent choice. It may be slow but, it sure is a comfortable ride.

The last time I saw that boat it was being used as a para sailing boat in Key West at some Jet Ski rental place.

There is one on the Hudson River up here in NY. Dont know details of condition but it is a running boat. Owner has been looking at different (smaller) cats so he may be interested in selling. Next time I see him at the marina I will get more info for you.

I have no experience with the Aronow cats, I only know what I have read about them in books like "Speed Kills".

Have you looked at Ocean Express Cats, same principle and there seem to be more around. There is what seems to be a pretty nice 48 for sale close to me with big power and Arnesens.

I can put you in touch if you want to learn more about it.

Here is what the one from custommarinesales looks like now. The new owner got it done just in time for the Leopa Spring run this weekend.
