Interesting. OB boats probably tend to kick the bow up a lot.

id think a cat could really benefit

some boats get some ballast added to run flat. This device would be much more effective for the amount of added weight.

seakeeper 2, for boats 27 to 32 feet
weight 414 lbs.
it's very heavy, 22,700 dollars heavy, that's before installation any extra charging and battery requirements.

you'll never see one in a performance boat because the electricity needed to run it would dim the underwater led lights
no one could charge a celly to tweet there bff's and post kardashian style videos about themselves
plus what about the the juice for all the amps and subwoofers that a performance boat clearly needs

Also, if it doesnít have a bathroom, AC and gen, itís a race boat and doesnít qualify for record speed attempts.
