Am I correct is saying that Profile grabbed their 28' cat mold's from what was Redline? If not, where did the mold's come from?
Yep Redline.

BTW, is Randy still planning on building a 36' cat?
I was told(not by Profile) that the boat is built and was water tested this fall. I guess it's just sick. But I haven't seen it in person yet. Some fellow boating buddies of mine missed him testing it by ten minuets.

Both bows come to a centered point on each sponson. ........

This is what a catamaran looks like. None of us have one we all have tunnel hulls. That is if we even have offshore boats that others call catamarans.
Uh...nope...sorry.

This is a Symmetrical catamaran and many of us have had them

This is a Assymetrical Catamaran........ and along with it's symmetrical siblings....is considered a Ram Wing Tunnel hull.

T2x the point I was trying to get across was that a lot of people including myself and most boat builders claim their tunnel hulls are catamarans. When the true definition of catamaran from a naval architecture standpoint is not what they are producing. Everyone calls them cat's, myself included, and this makes it very confusing for others whom may not know very much about boats. My wife over the weekend at the Worlds was very confused and this is why i bring it up.
