Very nice... Just remember not to drive it like a Vee Bottom. Cats prefer to drive themselves if you know what I mean. Just let the hull do all the work it is designed to do. Enjoy......

Welcome to a cat! It's like having two boats, two boats in one!!!

They're right, tcats don't drive like a V-hull. When I firsat got mine home and spent some time learning to drive it I had MAJOR second thoughts about it.

But as I gained experience, I learned those thoughts were the result of my driving! Much too quick with the wheel and just not knowing what the boat wanted. Now after about 25 hours - I love it and feel 110% comfortable driving at all speeds!! So far I've run about 95 at about 14% slip. I'm now trying other props in search of 100MPH.

Take it easy at first gain "the touch" and gain confidence. You're gonna love it!!!

By the way great paint!
