Are you a member of John Peterson's "How Seet It Is" racing team? I'm guessing that you may be or are a fan. Your last comment also implies the same. Just wondering. Regardless, welcome aboard.

P.S. Didn't the SCL Eliminator lose a nose on one sponson during the 2002 Cape Cod race?

If you guys remember the early days of skater [late 80s] the race 32s would break hulls all the time. That is how they learned how to build them.
I would not buy a 100mph cat without a canopie or some sort of wind protection.

Why is it that when ever a cat is mentioned, it's always about speed? Not everone wants or needs to go fast. Thats why Mercury makes various engine packages.
People buy cats for alot of reasons, number 1 being the stability you get. Most people say they want to go 100+ mph, when you take them out for a test they think 80 was too fast. It's time people start to look at cats in a different light, cats are not just about speed alot of our customers are very happy with twin 496's and thats fine.

What? I have NEVER heard anyone with a cat say that they don't want to go fast. They may not want 1200's but they want to go fast. The ride is 100% better in cats at high speeds. If your gonna pay the insurance on one then why negate their purpose?

The race boat is unrigged and weighs #4600 it will have some big ass Sterlings in it and will be very fast.
Can you post some pictures of the "pleasure boat"? I would be interested in pics of the cabin.

Thanks!
