That's a hell of a product jump

I'd be a nervous investor.

That's a lot of fuel. Interesting that they would put the water capacity in an ad like this, as I'm not sure that's a key selling point. Plus, 35 gallons doesn't sound like alot for a boat this size.

Beat me to it. In another thread someone claimed Michael Peters was designing a cat for a builder other than Invincible . Seeing as he designed the hull for the 26, I'm thinking this is it.

Are there other builders that produce a mono hull and a cat? Didn't Grady try this once with the tiger cat? Yes... I understand Barker is in a whole different league than Grady's. Just curious.

Excellent this should be a heck of a boat. Can't wait for more to be released. If it is a cat with quad 627 it would make a heck of a poker run boat as well... I know we're geared towards fishing but it would be a good competitor for the MTI center consoles etc. We fish the keys and performance boat at lake of the ozarks and a center console cat with that kind of power would be amazing.
