Based on this logic, I could say that a larger tunnel allows more water to enter for sneezing therefore a bigger sneeze?

eh? Less compressed air to force the water out on a larger tunnel. This cat is probably going to solve SH tippy/sensitivity to weight issue

sea trial takes boat out of show for a hour or so at a time. Better to get more eyes on the boat, serious buyers will seatrial later.

Couple of years ago Freeman brought a 34VH...spent more time on sea trials than at the dock....it was exceedingly frustrating trying to see the boat...in the end, i never got to tour the boat. Did that cost them a sale? Probably not, didn’t help make one either.

Keep up up the conspiracy theories tho...makes for good reading,

makes sense in theory let’s see what reality is.

competition is good for the market, boat looks great and a great company behind it. Excited to see it Sunday

All of those problems on such a nice looking vessel could be easily corrected by adding weight to the bow or doing something incredibly stupid like flooding the boat with water. But that doesn't make sense to any boat builder.... Wait

Wouldn’t sneezing cats be part of Vet Scool instead? I crack myself up. Carry on people.

I'm personally not a big fan of cats. To unpredictable, to many weapons, and bad attitude!

If the boat is so bad why do they have a multi-year wait list with deposits on the new sled? I guess those people who have put down cash must know more than the keyboard cowboys on this site!

The seahunter cat is not a lightweight
when the specs are released it is heavier than most
claiming this boat is porpoising from the video is ridiculous
sea state and speed of boat in video can give the illusion of many things
after the show Seahunter will be doing extensive sea trials for anyone with interest out of their marina

If your seriously interested in any of these offerings
after the show schedule an appointment and spend hours on the boat
during the show there is not enough time to properly sea trial

Sneezing is caused when water in the tunnel compress and push wet tunnel air forward and the advancing passengers run into this mini cloud of mist.
Any cat tunnel can do this if the Top of the tunnel is too LOW and traps sections of air.
Tunnel width has nothing to do with this as chop is extremley wide, making all cat tunnels to narrow if your assumption was correct.
Boat height is where a fabricator can cut corners, but over loading smaller cats was also a reason aa people loaded the 16-26 footers up with more fuel and gear to fish farther out in taller seas.

i walked all over it today....fit and finish is as usual...good. There is no step on the bow, but it seemed like a gentle incline. You feel much higher in the bow than in the Inv.
