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.

Ray's Compmillennia "Lightspeed 1188" changed hands this Winter and will be fishing some tournaments soon.
Soon meaning tomorrow at the Crosthwait Memorial Fishing Tournament near Bradenton Fl.
"The rubber meets the road" as some may say.

I saw it running in the caloosahatchee yesterday going east through the locks. Planes off effortlessly. That is one beautiful ride.

What a bummer. I messaged Ray a year ago to please contact me when he was ready to let it go. I'm sure i'm not the only one though.

Another case of the V Bottom Blues Max?

You should check out the Quatre we are building. 40 x 14. The next one is also 40 x 14 but with twins and we have a full pilot house version in design that could bunk 6-8, AC, galley if wanted for extended trips.
You can still trailer it with an F-250. Let us build you one.

How about something like the configuration of the Gulstream 66 but with diesel inboards, maybe using the new ZF Disruption project set up

Please share the pilothouse design with us when you have something good enough to post. I'd love to see that.

I just miss having a fast boat. Since I sold the 27' I've been really wanting to find something to scoot around in especially for the winter when the weather windows are just one day maybe two here and there. I have a significant need for a 75-90' steel hull for my business, but an overbearing want for another cat (personal stuff).

Just need a fast boat pretty efficient that can pack 1000lbs of fish in it.
Have even looked into fabricating something like the metal shark 52' with inboard diesel power just not so big and obviously with my own fabricators since I don't have a money tree next to the fig and lemon trees in the yard.
