In the perfect world everyone would own seven boats.

1) Cat with Big Power
2) 35+ Foot Vee with Big Power
3) Luxury Cruiser with Big Power
4) Power Toons 65MPH+ Party Barge
5) Ski Boat with Big Power
6) Bass Boat with Big Power
7) Blow Boat with Big Diesel Power

In that order.

One thing they all have in comman is "Big Power" LOL

But even though I have not had much experience with cats, The perfect boat if I could have anything would be a large cat with a cuddy.

I'm with Too Old on this one...37' AT w/reliable power, maybe a pristine conventional hull 90s Top Gun (I know it would be a used boat, but new for me ) No step, notch, pad, or other BS. I'll take the overnighting goodies though, nothing like a Nantucket, Newport, Martha's Vinyard, Montauk vacation with your own hotel that hauls butt

I would take a AT with same set up as Jassman, KE 675s or a 38 Fountain or 38 Playboy Cig all with the 675s. I will have one of the mentioned just is going to take a few more years.

Side note, never been in a big cat so??
