Im no expert but I tow and launch my boat on average 3-7 days a week during the summer, and I was under the impression that overwidth hauling permits were required in NY for over 8' 6" and it was quite the hassle?

My rubrail extends past the legal width in Kentucky. It has never been an issue, but it could be with the right cop. Should have gone with the full cap. The trailer is legal, boat very close.

I go after work till sunet and later. Usually home by 12:00, unless its one of those rare calm warm moonlit nights on Lake Erie. I have friends who litterally are out ever boating day after work and the week ends.

T2x is of course correct (as is often the case) in that Skater cats are the gold standard for which all others are compared. However if you race in the 30-32 foot outboard class the Doug Wright may indeed be the new standard. From the race results over the last few years it appears the skaters arenít even close.

Doug Wrights have a very good winning record.. I wouldn't say Skaters aren't even close..Wright's are kinda purpose built race boat, like the Mystics.But they do run excellent.

I have been publicly skeptical of center pod cats in the past. However, after riding in the new M31 DCB, I've become a believer. Not to say it isn't still purpose built and obviously center pod cats aren't made to run in the open ocean, the M31 ate up the little white caps and 1-2' chop Havasu threw up the day we tested with out a hickup. Different strokes for different folks...Variety is a good thing.
