Heck, If I saw those engines and go fast at the show I would have taken pictures with my phone and been happy. Thanks for the smiles. B38

If your a fan of center consoles and wakeboard/ski boats it's right up your alley.
I wish we'd of had Miss G at our show as a display.
Here's some pic's on a link to what was decent at our show back in January.
If it ain't to much trouble and you got some pic's I'd love to see closeups of the Cat.

I was surprised to not see any Nor Techs. They're not too far from here. Statement is local. Closest we had to performance was a couple Formula cruisers.

We've never done that show. We don't even do the shows in Ft. Myers. Shows are expensive and you have to decide where you'll get the most bang for the buck.
With the line of CC's we will be expanding into some other shows but will do just a few. In addition to Lauderdale and Miami we will be at Annapolis next month and St. Pete in December.
