And I didn't say you had, I said you were critical of those asking for them and why they were non-existent. And you still haven't posted the multiple reports, that you said existed just not here.
I've spent 1000s of tenths of hours on at least 2 different Bay boats, does that mean I win? And I would say that neither, damn there may have been 3. Either way, they didn't ride the same. So I wouldn't make that assumption on the ECB either.

Following you? Good God man

Interesting that someone calls out Savage on the same day two glowing ride reports on the 264 are posted.

All the talk around this boat is speed. When are we going to see some fishing pics? Four guys fishing from the stern so we can see how much room she has. Is this a race cat or a fishing cat?

A 26 foot boat that goes 80 MPH and cost 200K

I would like to know what this boat does really well other than go fast.

Does it float shallow?
Does it have enough free board to go offshore and actually fish?
Is the hull quiet on the flats?
Is the pit deep enough to really lean into a rod with 30 plus lbs of drag? Never seen many folks standing on a casting deck fishing offshore in any kind of sea!

I dunno, but I haven't yet grasped the attraction.

30+# of drag.....really? When have YOU ever needed that? I'm not a fanboy but when someone starts talking 30# of drag, I gotta ask...Btw...boated 182 and 192# yf in the last 4 weeks and didn't need 30# of drag...lol

You could say this about any hybrid bay boat. For many the ability to do it all with one boat vs two is attractive. They won’t do anything great but will allow you to do it all pretty well. This one looks good doing it and also will get it done quickly!

I guess you have never bottom fished for gag grouper with a locked down drag.

And yes Savage, I would like to know and might even have a friend that is interested as well.

As a boat nut. I am all for a new catamaran that looks to be bad-A
whether the company can be successful and check enough boxes, beside being wicked, to be in demand is up to the execution and end product.

I say congrats and good luck!

Why not just drive down to the factory and look at it? You're only about 35 minutes away. It's a big boat that I see being nearshore more often than the flats

Very few people could hold a rod in their hands with 30lbs of drag without stand up gear.

So now your a gag grouper fishing expert..

As said, you have never done it I suspect.

I like the boat but not sure it's the do all. Most aren't.

I would not buy or promote it until I fished it for it's said ability.

Put it the hands of capable guys that fish everyday. Twin engine 600 hp boats on the flats may be the new rave but I doubt it.

I'm looking hard right now to get down to one boat. I have interest in this build and am watching.

I catch quite a few gags every year. I'm fishing 120+ days a year. I think I know what I'm talking about...

Fusion, I'm guessing you have no idea who 20 Bimini twist is?? On my old grouper set ups would bottom out a 50lb scale, did it many times testing knots. You're right it isn't mandatory but if you want to catch big gags it sure helps.

I do still enjoy the PP measuring in regard to a boat no one has really run yet. Hype has certainly been established.

Please post a video of you fighting a big gag, heck even an AJ with 50lb drag. You'll be over the side of the boat

Boat looks Awesome. But I don't understand what makes it a bay Hybrid? That boat looks like it can do what any 26 ft boat can do and more. The free-board is really no different than any 25-26 offshore boat. On top of that its a Cat, which really makes for a great ride in a rougher sea setting.
