So I am picking up that the invincible has a ballast system?
Fat Bottom Girl is getting new NSS16 evo 3's soon. She will be available end of summer. Or maybe after we catch the fat momma sword fish in June!

Not saying don't believe it, because I sure as hel don't know - but will say to not believe everything you read on the internet - especially when some keyboard cowboy posts it.

Sea wolf do you think the smaller 40ft cat is going to outperform your 42?

We do not have ballast tanks in our boat PERIOD. That is right from the factory. I have been on the Freeman, I have seatrialed the Freeman, I have been told standing face to face with Scott of Freeman boats, that "yes their boat has ballast tanks" He told me 40 gallons each. I think that is about as clear as I can make it.

My honest answer is i do not know ,,,the only cat I ever fished was a 37 freeman , After fishing it all day I concluded I liked my invincible step better... but that may be because I may not be a cat person ,, or maybe it was the boat... time will tell... maybe the invincible cat may ride and fish differently ??? Only time will tell... how does your freeman compare to the Seavee 39z you had fish ability and ride.... basically I am asking you the same question????

If it's 40 gallons each side, why has everyone been throwing around the 200 gallon figure?

688lbs is a lot less than the 1,720lbs that 200 gallons of ballast would imply.

I couldn't tell you. I'm repeating what was told to me by Freeman. Maybe it is bigger, but thats what I was told.

Thank you Dave for the clarification. Not the first time I have heard this and 80 gallons sounds a lot better than 200-250 which was posted here before.

Sorry it hurt your feelings but it was just verified again by someone else.

I agree it is big difference and a lot less weight. Makes me wonder with a heavy load if it even needs the extra 688lbs. Don't most of the guys make long runs with 1,000lbs of ice anyways?

Again, Their ballast tanks my in fact be bigger. my guess is they are. If you need to add weight its for a reason. You are compensating for something.

Sea Wolff seems too be avoiding the question. I guess it was fake news!

Seavee z 39 was awesome as the rear cockpit is similar to my boat. The fit and finish also best in class I believe. Seavee was my runner up until I rode the Freeman with Billy in Lauderdale. That ride had me hand him a check two years ago. Now owning one I have discovered so much more I love about the boat. Durability , stability , & clean ability.

If Invincible is deriving this assymetrical cat by somehow splitting one of their stepped V hulls, then I hope that they split the 33 next and maybe only move the sides like 10'6" appart.
