mako 5m cat????

does anyone have any experience with mako/ballistic's 5m cat, or any other mako boats. is the cat hull any better for rougher sea's? Boat will be used primarily for diving, exploring, and fishing out here in hawaii. Any help will be greatly appreciated looking to purchase this boat next week, also this will be my first rib purchase.

Some of the lifeboat guys here did a charity run from Dublin to Scotland recently. I spoke to some of them and they said that cats have a tendency to "slap" the water more than a V hull if the conditions are at all choppy. I hope this helps. Enjoy your rib in Hawaii. My brother in law is from Oahu but has lived here for the past 25 years........ I suspect your weather is better than ours.

Fast... Very feckin fast please.
