Well done to the Falcon boats, they seem to be doing excellent from the results you posted ,I like the pattern at the front of the Falcon race boats, it looks cool the way it extends under the hull, When Charles is back Manos ask him to send you the photos he has of the Hysucat factory in S.A , he also has a pic of the hull less the tubes.What do you think of the Zap Cats on the Trans Agulhas web site? have you ever been in one? I have watched a dvd of them racing very impressive gavin

ZAPCATS

Gavin,

Thanks for the comments. Falcon boats (the 700 RSR in particuar) are build on a very fast hull with high tech materials. So power to weight ratio is very high.
Re ZAPCATS I've never been on one (Yet ). I have asked arround and opinions (as you would expect) vary from some say they are crap to some say that they are excellent.
I think I'll try a ZAPCAT in Feb if I get the chance.
Certainly in the XMarine web site the photos of ZAPCATS racing on top of those waves look realy cool
From seeing those I think that they must be fun boats.
