    This is one ugly bloated cockpit cat IMHO. So with that being said, the question is as she is aluminum, how hard would it be to cut-down/rebuild the center cabin into an acceptable looking cruising catamaran that was still functional?

    I know this boat is heavy compared to most composite (balsa or foam core) cats of the same length, but the added toughness does appeal to me. But just how slow will she be?

    Man - You could polish that thing until you're blue in the face. You might end up with a really shiny thing, though.
