    COMING SOON!! New single engine 24 cat

    COMING SOON! I am working on a new cat design with a couple other guys. This boat is 24ft. Doug Wright is designing the boat and building the plug with the monster CNC machine. Boat is 102" wide and cockpit will be about 90" wide. Tunnel should be about 60". All depends on Doug's final figuers. Layup schedule will also be based on Doug's recommendations. May be epoxy or vinylester, not sure yet. Also vacuum bagged. This boat will be different as it is designed to be run with a big single Mercury. The drop downs on the rear sides will make it easier to board from the water. Windshield will be 1/2" Lexan like bigger cats. This is a totally new design for the guy who wants a BADD-ASS single cat! It will be built to be able to set up steering on right or left with a 12" screen in the center. I will probably rig, paint, and setup the first one. This will not be a cheap boat, but will be one of a kind! Hope to have first one done by spring.

    ...make it a couple feet longer, vinyl not epoxy, only bag in the cores, as the rest is un-necessary with a good glass crew, absolutely no wood cellulose, build it in florida...just my .02...

    You can bet that if they follow Doug's lamination schedule, material recommendation, use the impregnater like he does, and vacuum every part like he does it will be light, strong, fast, and expensive. I was down there Thursday going over my stuff and looked at the latest cad updates on this project. He is an incredible designer. It has similar lines the 26 Redline that he designed. This might flood the market with used liberators...

    Preloads the carbon or e-glass with resin (makes things consistent and uses the correct amount of resin for optimum strength and weight). Every piece of material goes thru there-time consuming but its the only way to create a product line that weighs the same every time. It also saves wasting expensive epoxy.

    Liberators are cheap for a new boat. This will be in another zip code for quality, handling, and price. He predicts it should run mid 20s with a new motor if they follow his procedures (nobody that he has designed for has done it yet). We went through this with the 28 and it gets very expensive to follow a complete Doug Wright build process. If you do, you end up with something very special-

    Now this looks about right. Nice size, styling and correct power.

    I love the easy boarding feature. Great for a go gast Family... Also for those of us Guys and Girls 50-60+ who want to get in and out with no drama.

    Plenty of speed, smooth riding, quiet single Merc Performance OB with a warranty. A new modern hull design with up to date build tech, a boat and engine management screen most will expect. Great docking manners, Easy shifting no docking drama. Butter smooth high MPH performance

    After positive boat tests results come out in the media. I'm thinking it's time for a boat motor trailer package with 20% down, 20 year fixed rate finance package with a free cover and prop to get some market share.

    Hmmmmm. Where do I sent my deposit and credit application??
