F1's are tunnels. Tunnels will certainly turn.

Cats will turn better than a vee at high speeds in rough water (at least I've never been in a vee that will turn like a 42MTI or Spectre36 at 110 in 3 footers, nor have I ever seen video of a vee that will turn like that in heavy water). Be careful to specify the parameters of your bet.

If you go into a turn, chop the throttles for an instant to set the boat it will turn like an F1 boat. I'm not talking at 60 ot 70 mph, I'm talking 100+ mph. Been there done it.

Skaters also do something most other cats don't in a turn, anyone?

Well there were no "parameters mentioned " so Ill stand with my statement that a vee will turn "SHARPER"
ie: tighter radius than a cat !

The only reason it was posted was to show my point that any boat regardless of make can come apart when subjected to severe forces. This is the link to the complete story for that picture if anyone is interested. http://www.midwestconnection.com/bwo...k_incident.htm

It was caused by a stuff and not a turn. No one was seriously hurt or I wouldn't have posted it.

Hmm, didn't realize you were out on the water. According to Bob the boat launched, tripped, stuffed. But what would he know, he was only driving. The boat was also trimmed to the moon running against the Scarab and they didn't tuck it in when the approaced the wake. Again, this was from the people that were in the boat.

Actually they were squeezing everything they had out of the boat trying to outrun the Scarab. Don't make it sound like they were taking a lazy ride up the river.
