    Curious what that your post means they got too close. I was completely baffled why two boats go over like that. Please explain. Thanks.

    The boats were so close to each other causing the air bleeding off the outside of each boats sponson to essentially be forced under the other boat causing even more air compression under each boat.
    With that comparison it’s basically saying the boats essentially “became one” hence the 20’ total width

    It makes total sense. I was not aware that could happen in a cat. Thank you.
