Why is that, too expensive or don't you like the boat? Have you ever been on one, do you know anything about the Hysucat at all?

The point is, you do not need a lot of horsepower on this rib.
With twin Yamaha 50hp 4-strokes I have jumped on the plane with 14 people on board in about 4 seconds! Try that with another similar specced rib.

ct01 - I have the money, my budget is 15,500 for my next RIB. I know absolutily nothing about them to be honest. It wouldn't really suit me (the layout etc), but it does look like a damn cool boat

Charles I think Ezgoing is refeering to a particularly nasty day we ran with him in the Hysucat and being a winter day we ended up a lot wetter in the cat than Ezgoing and Katandra a 6.5 mono hull Redbay.

True the Hysucat sits up ontop of the chop, you dont get a lot of water in the front, but you do get wet in them, the hydrofoil is an amazing addition to the boat, your Hysucat had the perfect hp for it, a pair of 50 hp, you can over do it with hp, after all once you achieve hull speed, it doesnt matter whats on the back




AS for pluses, the hysucats are very manouravble

quick, efficient and dont need a lot of hp

deck rail system, hydrofoil supported
loads of storage twin redunancy, with batteries , motors and fuel system


negatives,

a few small design issues

difficult to get lower engine mounts

anchor locker leaks potentially into the hull

deck leaks fill the hull
only possible to empty whilist out of the water

stainless foil is prone to electrolisis



However the ride is different, you can run em dead flat, ontop of the surf they sit, they turn flat, get the props out quite a lot, plane almost instantly, they are weight sensitive, we shifted consul batteries and foreward fuel tanks, as we were weighed down with a pair of heavy fichts we used get 36 knots

overall the Hysucat is a good boat, if you trailer it, the water leaks will never bother you, and they are tough little boats
