4 Seats??? that sucks. I like both V's and Cats. But when looking at these boats I ask myself, why by a V-Hull that only seats 4 people, has no cabin (correct me if I am wrong in this case), Bathroom, sleeping, etc. only to go slower than the next Cat with similar power. I know many people just prefer the look of a V vs. a Cat, but honestly anyone else have any ideas. I honestly like both. I have a 28 Skater, and my Dad has a 37 Outerlimits (stiletto) of which I am thrilled to be in either of. Dont want to start an argument here just really want to hear peoples opinoins.

The first 42 poker run fountain is a 4 seater and has no cabin.I am told that they will make it with a half cabin if you order it.

Dead on.

Same amenities as a cat without the speed. Mind you without the insurance bill either.

I am happy to see Reggie changing the 'mold', no pun intentended, and making some new stuff. I look forward to seeing one.

All of the OL GTX's hang right in their with 9/10ths of a cats. I think Reggie see's that 1/2 the boats coming out of the OL camp are GTX's, and his cat venture didn't work out, so why not do the next best thing. I think its great that all of these comp. can have offerings for different clientel. Jeff

The insurance thing I am not even that sure of anymore. Outerlimits with big power and #6's 6-10k or more depending on declared value of the boat. If you honestly claim the speed and you are in the 110-130, 140 range in a V you are also paying top dollar for insurance, especially if the boat is in the 400-800k range. I really do like the looks of the GTX's, the Gladiator, and the new fountain, so it really makes it a performance issue.
