That is probably for the older, heavier layup. I'm told a newer 3100 with a lighter layup and HP500's and B1 drives will hit 100.

I have two buddies with AO's. They love them, one is a 2600, one a 3100. Both sweet boats, especially the 3100. If I ever bought a cat, 3100 would be the one.

I have a 1998 AO 2600. Powered by a Procharged 454 EFI. I love it.

Last I had heard, they were still around. Some people are going to get burned, but they'll make it

My first and only ride in a cat was a 3100. Been in love with them ever since. For value and looks it would have to be the 3100!
