Look at the pic in this classified add. I assume its a cat, maybe ocean express or something?

For me 95mph on a boat that seats 30 people
sounds scary fast!

IIRC that boat weighs 14,000lbs+ as it sits. Not only that, it has a very wide center pod which drastically reduces air pack. Makes for a very slow boat. And I sure as hell wouldn't put a B1 behind an 850hp motor, much less in a heavy boat like that one.

I would like to know how they got the CG right with three motors right on the transom. The fuel tanks must be in the forward sponsons.

That was my first thought. It looks very transom heavy
