    Very nice lines for the type.... looks like she'd be competing against the go-fast centre console boats from Donzi and friends, maybe some of the larger Whalers.... nice to see some non-traditional thinking, with the cat form, in a market totally dominated by deep-V monos. Apart from some malformed HTML on the home page (text overlaps renderings) the website looks decent too, looking forward to seeing more of this project!

    Thanks guys,

    Some people are having problems opening the site with AOL's program. Window's Internet explorer seems to do fine.

    I will be posting more photos next week. The hull has been glassed and fairing will start Monday.

    A piece of advice on web design- the site's also malformed in Netscape, Firefox and Opera. Generally it's not a good idea to design with only IE in mind as that browser is not fully compliant with international Web standards, and stuff geared to its unorthodox protocols often screws up the other 80% of us.

    And due to the crappy security and holes IE is forbidden in many businesses - we are not allowed to use it and I don't ever use it at home for this very reason.

    Firefox it is for me.
