My father owned one with twin Suzuki's also. It rode very well in most seas and was quite fuel eficient. The only down side was the way it rocked back and forth while at anchor or adrift.

I didn't know you could get them in the States; I thought they were only here in Hawaii.

I saw one sell for over 50,000 last year. Great looking boat with the older 22' seacat hull. From what I heard it was a rocky boat from bow to stern because of the added weight of the cab. A close friend of mine went through all sorts of conditions with his cousin's 22 Hawaiian Seacat and said it was awesome for channel crossings but came up short when slow trolling in rough seas where it bit the next oncoming wave and it comes up the front of the cab.

Not built anymore but a few are roaming around at that high price. If you can get the Force Marine Cat or the Glasscat they ride about the same with those cabs with the Force having the edge in the ride department from what i've heard.

Oh, I just saw that one for sale. Nice price if you can get it close to what it is now. Find out where the cab was built because the originals from Kauai had a Radon like cab built on and not that pilot house. Good luck.

I didnt realize you guys had seceded from the union. Last time we tried it, they shot at us.

It's back....
http://ventura.craigslist.org/boa/4348263805.html
List at $23K with ~520 hours on the engines.

EDIT: Something is odd - Florida registration - this ad in Ventura was up but the same ad was flagged and removed in Santa Barbara. And, per the ad, "This has been a great boat for us here in Santa Barbara, whether up to Naples or overnights at the Islands". Naples in CA???? (yes, there's one in Long Beach but not really a boating destination).

something looks odd on the axle spacing - the axles are much closer together on my SeaCat's 25 SL5C trailer. Maybe they pushed the one forward to accommodate the front end weight Wonder if the tire scrub more in turns.

I was thinking the same thing - because the tires looked way undersized!

Naples Reef is the point of reference along the Santa Barbara coast. I grew up around Naples in Alamitos Bay so I appreciate your local knowledge.
