You also don't hear about all the incidents. Last weekend a 34' cat barrel rolled 3 times on Havasu, and I have not seen anything on this site about it.

What happens in Havusa stays in Havasu. The Good, The Bad, The Parties, The Accidents and the nakedness.....

Just kidding........

The bottom line is , they ALL have the potential to get out of shape real fast.

A T/S will bite the hand that feeds them.

I really am amazed at all of the conversation on the safety and handling characteristics of the stepped hulls. All one has to do is run a stepped hull, even a 42 tiger with side by sides at 95-100 across 3-4 footers in a straight line and then jump in a non stepped hull, try a Cig or Sutphen 39 and run across the the same water at the same speed. Granted the old hulls will definetly take more to get there. But, the ride charcteriscics are totally different. Everytime the hull re-enters you can feel the difference. My limited experince with the stepped hull gave me the feeling like I was running on marbles and the rear of the boat was basically sliding around, and did not track in a line as straight as the non stepped. But then again, the same thing that makes them fast in a straight line makes them somewhat slippery.

Me too. I just want to be safe since Jeffery has one. And I'm learning how to drive it. I don't want to make the same mistakes they did.






AND you people who own FORMULA's or Apache's I don't want to hear a WORD

I never intended on this being a v-hull, conventional hull, cat hull pissing match. Cig 1, point is, the guy has handled a fast boat. I've never been in a Skater but 100+ (which most or all will do) certainly is some means for experience over going 65 in a v-hull. (or whatever speed they were actually going, 65 was reported) It CAN happen to anyone, whatever hull. How many times do you wear life vests while running? If you don't, they were smarter than you. Or at least less cocky.

Kaama
It was at Gene Klock (SP?) park area in Benton Harbor actually, N of the pierheads. In 18' of water, meaning fairly close to shore. Boat had IL registration numbers and owner is out of MI City I heard. So, it wasn't a local boat, just in for the poker run action or spectating. Oh, today I heard the other yellow AT in the area is getting a makeover. Sounds like you might need more horsepower.
