- Dec 8, 2004The cabin is the kicker on this cat . Seems you can't have your cake
and eat it to. Start optimising the cabin for windage you end up
with making the hulls taller to acommadate space lost in cabin which
adds windage. The cat just looks fun . But I keep seeing 2 skinny
hulls one short and a one long with a big square cabin in the
middle;) I'll keep you posted.
