I looked at the Zapcat Racing website - talks about 2 different models - Z10 and EVO. Have the EVO's caught on, or are folks still using the Z10's mainly?

I used to have a zap cat, with a yammie 40hp on it. The thing was an absolute space ship, it flew around, getting air on even small waves. I have never had so much fun in a boat. BUT it was entirely impractical, I got fed up with having to wear a wetsuit and visor (the spray was terrible!), and friends didnt want to come out on it once they had put their back out for the second or third time.

If it was more like a SIB (like the caesar surfcat) im sure i would still own it now. A zodiac futura might fit the bill for you, if you want a huge motor on an inflatable as they have speed tubes that lift it out of the water and give some of the benefits that zap cats have, whilst being all together more manageable.
