Get a Bigger boat the other day with Cowlis we got air in the Cafe bouncing around in 5 ft stuff and Christopher was sleeping like a baby on the floor at the base of the entrance in the cabin. Nothing beats 10000# for ride!!! Then again it was only 67MPH

I love the speed of those cats Airpacker, But on lake Champlain it would have to be a 36+ foot Skater to be a smooth ride
I do see myself in a 36'+ turbine powered cat in the future though
I can't really go any bigger with the "V". My regular waters are almost to small for the 29' as it is.

There you go GLH... Am a gold member just like in Austin Powers...

Big work on my B-brand boat tomorrow. New sound system with Infinity speakers. Any of you guys have tricks for cutting fiberglass... ? I have to install two 6x9 in the rear seat and the front panel is made of f-glass....

JS232,go to a building supply store and buy yourself a composite jig saw blade. Its covered with a diamond dust the cuts glass like warm butter. Any steel blade will dull real fast and you'll need a few or one good diamond blade..cover the cot out area with masking tape to prevent the saw body from scratching the glass around the hole.
