    I can't help wondering why they went for the Cat-labelled version of an engine which is actually an FPT Cursor 9.
    A yellow sticker makes them appear more reliable than a red one, I guess...

    Yeah, for some reason the Illinois boys decided to not brag about one of their finest products being actually designed and manufactured by Fiat...

    PS: though in fairness, they actually disclose that, if you dig into their website - see "Overview", scrolling down in this webpage.

    interesting setup!

    out of curiosity, how do you call such a hull shape?
    not a monohull, not a cat?
    monohullish planning cat or something?
