That is Peir 57 new baby, a Fountain/Scism cat. Fountain and MTI merged to mass produce the boats, they are awsome

Correct me if I am wrong but Art is working the sticks and it is either Jeff Harris or Fred Tull driving?

And they raced some last year but i dont remember them at the World's?

Driver for the Pier 57 Cat you saw is the owner of Pier 57 David Woods and yes the Throttleman is none other than Art Lilly.

DPT, you are exactly right. I get the three mixed up, they are all a part of Fountain or Peir 57 some how.

And again insptech, i believe i heard they were arneson surface drives.

It was on I95 going north in Virginia. It may have been on it's way to Art's. Damn, I better get down to the marina tommorow, he uses our ramp to test a lot of his "projects". Maybe he needs a little ballast in the other seat. Hell, anyone can steer, right

They didn't look like regular Arnesons. They are recessed under those hull extensions and had what looked like struts near the ends. I didn't get a real good look(70 MPH) but I couldn't see how they steer that thing. When I first came up behind it I thought it was a bare hull cause the driveshafts are tucked up under there.
