I've driven a LOT of boats (just ask anyone!!) and I would have to say that the most fun I've ever had driving a boat was in Cord's 26 Firehawk at the Milwaukee races. Lake Michigan 2-3 footers was an absolute riot in that boat. Road MUCH better in those conditions than my 24 Baja. I also got to drive it in smooth water at LOTO for the Shootout weekend. I managed 77 mph or so out of it. Great acceleration!!

I've also driven MNFasboats 28 Advantage Sport Cat at LOTO. Got 79 out of that on that day. Also a great ride!!

I've never ridden in a Skater though.....hint hint.

I like the idea of three eng. if something would go wrong with one you can still run good.

Hell, I still ran home on my motion with 2.5's and 1 down at 45-50mph.
I'm sure most cat's will do the same with twins.

Trips would be better for that ride, with 1 down.
