A New Boat for Mr Hart

Hi Kieth,

When we spoke in Plymouth I told you about "Zapcat" Racing. Here is a picture of one for sale 1950o.n.o Will take max 50Hp engine.

They are great fun to drive and ride, can turn with its own boat length flat out Note the stratigically placed foot holds for Driver & Passenger.

Looks fun, but would it get across The Pentland Firth?

No problems Keith. You should see the Aussies and South Africans racing them in the surf, first crew to hit the beach running and get to the flagis the winner.

Very steady boats Keith.
This photo probably will convince you. However, don't think that they suit the British COLD weather.
But people have their preferences I suppose

That's what I 'cut my teeth on' - Rubber Duckie Racing as we used to call it. Had many, many flips, scars and virtual drownings!

if you look on the aussie Zap cat site you will see an amazing picture of a boat truly flying at least 8 feet of clear water underneath it.. funnily enough it's main sponsor was an undertaker
