It was the purple and yellow one.I talked to the guy for a few minutes out at muscamoot.We were pretty shocked to pull in to the river and see all the commotion.Hope everyone is ok,he had some kids onboard.

Clinton River is no wake the whole length, I'd think it's hard to hit anything hard enough to do much damage.

OTOH, I've seen all sorts of crap come floating down the river, especially if there have been storms in the previous few days. That goes for the lake as well - nothing like bopping along at 50 mph and almost running over a floating log! That'll wake you up every time!

I'd say a cat hull definitely can't take hitting something in the water as good as a v-hull, They are definitely laid up way lighter than a v-hull, I've seen impact damage on v-hulls, and cat's, two totally different stories, a cat has to be light to fly correctly, a v- is heavier to pound thru a wave, and then dont forget a v-hull is full out at the speeds a cat is just starting to pack air and ride correctly. Hitting something small at high speed in a lightly laid up cat can really rip it up, where a v-hull would just scratch, and crack a little.

Dockrocker, speaking of just missing a log, I was headed to put-in-bay in my cat in 95-96 for memorial day, when I first got that boat, and somewhere in the detroit river I just missed what I thought was a full tree or maybee a telephone pole. Had I hit that at the speeds I was traveling at, I'd guess both motors, and my transom would have ripped off, and who knows how I would have fared, the only thing I felt good about was that we all had our jackets on. Cat's are where it's at though....
