how are the ballast tanks controlled? Can you control them from the helm like trim tabs or is it more like something you do (open a valve) at rest and then ride out?

Say what? Starting to feel some love on these horrible ballast tanks!

I heard through the grapevine that both Fountain and Nortech are building Cats, they are going to run 150mph and get 1.4mpg. I heard that a certain Cat new to the scene will be running the brand new top secret motors from a certain Manufacturer based in Japan, but thats all can say. Last thing, your boat is fugly, i mean F U G l Y

Seeing as how you work for Invincible, you are doing a good job of making yourself look like a horses rear end in the boating industry.

Actually I kind of like that he isn't politically correct on any of his posts. That's the kind of salesman I would rather deal with.

It's sort of like being the Kardashian sisters...

Some people like one's tits.
Some people like one's ass.
Some people say thay are all disgusting.

However there will always be a line of people who want the f*** them all because they hype themselves so well and laugh there way to the bank.

And I for one would bang all them on any of the cats mentioned cause they are all awesome and get the job done even like a toothless hooker.

Lol, he doesn't represent all of us Rod. Interestingly enough, all of those Freeman "a-holes" let me drink all their beer on the 42 during Flibs knowing I couldn't personally afford their boat. They also treated me like a buyer. The next day myself and a friend who is a cash buyer went to see the invincible after setting up an appointment previously and were treated like bums (except for the young guy capt. who was on the 40', he was extremely nice). Tried to stay out of this but I couldnt anymore.

Todd I see you went with the optional large access hatch on the 7 foot long compartments in the front. Good choice!

Bwd I have seen some major chest beating about your boat but I have yet to see any fish onboard!! You took two to Bimini surly if wasn’t to hold hands on the dock talking about your big waves.
Here is my 37 coffin box holding a 409 freeshaft Warsaw grouper we weighed at the St Pete Open!
