Iam sure that the same model all our beach lifeguards are equipped with .
They use a 30 hp mariner 2 stroke with a propguard usually , some seem to have 25 hp .
There was a link here to some time back with some very extreme pics of the lifeguards training in them .

They appear to be tough well made little sibs but nothing really special from what i can see , they seem quite floppy compared to some air floor boats like the wetline / honda , but maybe thats an advantage in some way for the use they get in the surf ??

Iam sure the pics were here but can't find them now , they were under lifeguard training .

Look on You Tube irb racing loads to look at .
Ceasar Surf Cat is good or the Gemini GRX 380 as a comparison and has the handling of a zap cat due to the highjackers instead of the inflateable keel.
