South Beach and Coconut Grove was a dangerous place in the late 80s and early 90s , I'm glad I only spent a night or two at a time there , Islamorada was a much tamer place to call home back then , I don't see how you guys survived Miami with all the beautiful women and vise.

Sorry for the derail, but these? Lanier Custom Boats is what they're now called. Used to be Fast Cats I believe. This exact boat belonged to a neighbor's son years ago.

You are exactly right. That's the one! Great flats and bay boats and Errol Lanier is a true gentleman and wealth of knowledge.

Those are beautiful Cats.

I thought John Connor had something to do with the Fast Cat hull design, as a development of the Dieter Schultz tunnel hulls. I do know with authority that a young designer, Sean Brown, that worked for me in the early 1990's drew the deck lines with styling influence from the Porsche Boxster of the day.
