Good morning guys.
I am in the market for a power cat and sadly my budget does not allow me to buy new [or even close]so I am hoping to find a older boat that needs repowering [out with the 2's and in with the 4's]
I am expecting to be towing it so as much as I would likea 23 footer, it would be too heavy for me to tow [Landcruiser Prado 120], so I am limited to 20 foot boats.
I am just begining to look around.
I noticed an advert in the paper yesterday for a Sharkcat, the ad reads:
"Sharkcat 6m [20ft for you guys
], stripped down for rebuild, twin jet units, tandem trailer AUD$5000 [ US$6500] as is."
I have not enquired about the vessel as yet, and don't know if the motors are stripped down or the entire boat
My questions are:
Is a jet powered cat a "good" thing? And why /why not?
I would presume that the engines would be mounted inside the sponsons? Depending on their exact location this could be good for "balance", I would assume.
Oh one more thing, can anyone advise about the fitting of the THT shirts? I am 6'2" and 13 stone, should I get a large or an xlarge? Thanks everyone
