Default Ex V Looking at a Cat

I am looking at Nor-Tech cat and I'm not sure about the handling characteristics of the cat versusu a V. Any feedbak would be welcomed. Thank you.

That is sticker shock! I'm more concerned about how I should drive the boat.

That's a good idea. By the way are you going to actually have a boat to drive this year. Just kidding. I'll see you at Hooker High

You'll love the cat once you understand the do's and dont's.......The speed is unparrelled in boating..I too made that choice and now I'm so glad I bought the cat. The first couple of months are the hardest. Take it in steps,and you'll be fine. seat time is everything on these boats. Like they say "ONCE YOU GO CAT,U NEVER GO BACK"
