The other thing to consider, is that at 39-41', that's a long way to shoot water forward..

I agree..There is a big difference when you go from a CC 27-29' cat..then a big jump to a wider and more substantial 32-34' cat.. the differences are apparent. From that point on I have much experience on cats like a 40 Skater in all conditions and speeds and the worst in 8-10' coming back from Key West to Miami. I do not fore see sneezing in any of these larger CC cats to be a problem...actually, the 33 Freeman I was on in nasty conditions with 8 people aboard did not sneeze...Billy even let me drive and throttle it.
