Could you please post some pictures of your cabin? Iíve been looking at cats and most of the ones I've looked at have a crawl space at best. My wife will not let me make the switch from our Vee bottom unless I can find a cat with a cabin.

FYI, the 38 awesome cat has a nice cabin, Nor tech 3600 (38.6' LOA) has a nice cabin, 46 skater Shogren has for sale, 53ft airborne has a HUGE cabin, and there are others. Good luck in your quest to win over your other half!

Thanks for the reply. Those all are very nice boats but Iím afraid Iíd need a new wife with a job if I wanted to get into one of those bad boys. Iíve looked at a couple of 33í Eliminatorís and they have a decent cabin but the only DCBís Iíve seen had what Iíd call a crawl space, thought maybe he had something different. I hope to find something a few years old that I wonít have to break the bank on.

Honestly, Steve you're an epic douchebag, always have been. You may be designer, but you have accomplished absolutely zero in terms of building and selling boats at anything other than a level of one off racer builder.

Like A holes, the boating world is full of them.

You don't know how to sell or build pleasure boats or run a company that does. Not too mention your boat in your avatar is fugly, I don't care how well or poor it performs. You can't sell a turd no matter how fast it slides down the porcelain.

Asking them why they put this step here, and why this lifting strake there, etc.. Sometimes the answer is as simple as "We tried it somewhere else and it didn't work" sometimes the answer get so complex it might as well be in chinese and they have to break it down for a simpleton like myself. I guess I could go spend a week at the holiday inn and come back with a better answer, but that's what I got for now.

HA- You seem to have an interest in design so perhaps do a little research on the relationship between wetted area and drag. I suspect youíll find any tiny increases in the coefficient of aerodynamic lift (resulting from such spray adding to the compression) is hugely offset by the increase in wetted area drag.

The center pod does not touch the water with speed.

BTW what 32 foot cat can run 135 with stock 700's and nxt drives. The center pod must be slowing it down right.
