I cant believe you haven't been permanently banned. Do us all a favor, please just stick to reading and not responding.



This boat has been listed on CL for quite a while, on and off. I believe it has hit ebay as well. As mentioned above, I think it's a splash of an Active. Neat looking boat though...

No Catman was a Cougar with a aft cabin affair,Originally was a experimental open class race boat with engines mounted over the tunnel ,it got a hole in it and was beached,that was the end of it's race days,then Michelle bought the boat and hung 4 outboards on it,Catman was a cool name at the time.

thats why the S=stock class cats twin OB out lasted the P= prostock class with tripple OB. the middle motor gets killed, I was taking pics of Dan Desantis when he moved up to P class from being a WC in stock class back in 93 or so. his dad was with us and told us they went through 2 center motors after 3 races and practice.

We had a lot of 3 motor cats out on patrol (12 Meter) you have to pay attention designing the deflector for the center outboard,it is hanging in open space and does not have the protection of the Sponson, the mid section is not designed to be placed in a high speed water flow,Only the lower unit can take some of this abuse,also the center motor I had a little different prop as we did not have the benefit of the bottom profiling the water.
