Not at all bacause the boat has such great visibility and you never carry the bow like you would in a V bottom. The boats get on plane at around 15 mph

Insurance for me was tough becaue im 21 with no cat experience. I took Tres Martins course though so now i can get insurance. I highly reccomend taking the course, not only for insurance purposes, but no matter how long youve been boating, you will learn a tremendous amount. Call SY Goldberg at total dollar about insurance

21? i thought i was getting screwed for being 28 when i bought my cat, i can't imagine the chit they gave you... i want to take that class too, hopefully i can fit it in my busy schedule of post whoring on here.....

at 100+ you prob do not spend much time in the middle of the pack and that is the main reason for the cat just still not sold on the rough water ride. randy said we could take one out, i will be in miami fro the show. not much call for boat rides in chicago in jan. that might be the key.
