I currently have 2 deep V's and would like to add a cat to promote our engine packages. I want something easy to tow that will run in the 120 MPH range with 800 HP asperated engines.I understand that Erie gets ruff on a daily basis but what is the downfall with the cats I have listed in these waters? Also which 1 would be the best and is there any others that would be better suited in the 100K price range?

The Motion and the Spectre are true tunnels and should handle the rough better than the Eliminator. In my opinion a Motion will be a smidge faster than the Spectre and a little easier to tow (8 inches or so narrower). It is a buyers market right now. You can find any of these in your price range.

What about the 377 Talon I see there a few in my price range for sale here on OSO? Also which of these listed are the best built boats?

I am also looking for a Bravo set up boat to install IMCO SCX's on not #6 boats.

Why not take 6's if on the boat? Bravos are going to get eaten up on a cat, only a matter of time. That Hustler at national looks like a great deal at 120k

I agree...no way to buy a cat with big blower motors and run in Lk. Erie with bravos...why would you even consider anything else?
