Default Light Green "Construction" Sponsored Cat

So I saw a light Green "XXXXX Construction" sponsored cat being pulled up I-75 in Michigan South of Detroit. Wondered in anyone knows about this boat??? Possibly heading back from KW???

Pretty nice rig but had never seen it before, didn't get my phone out in time to snap a pic.

Curiosity I suppose.

It seemed to be ok -- but I was heading South and they were heading North on I-75...so at least the port side looked fine

Here's a pic from when it was Traffic Light. This was in the pits during the Pt. Beach OPA race from 06. The race unfortunately was cancelled due to the fog.
