timw, here is a post from an earlier thread:
All I can say is......(in my opinion) the Hysucat is the best 6.5 rib going. I had the first one in the UK for about 3 years, the only reason I sold it was for the fact that my wifes family moved back to Jersey and we quickly ran out of space! You will be hard pressed to find another rib that can handle the chop as well as the Hysucat can. She is incredibly stable at rest due to the cat hulls, minimum HP required as the foils 'lift' you out of the water creating less drag. I loaded her with 14 people (twin 50hp 4 strokes and she was on the plane in a matter of seconds. Capable of 17 knts with one engine raised. Fantastic for water-skiing as the wake is virtually non-existent. I would strongly advise a couple of hours tuition before helming this craft as she does not perform as mono-hulls do. (There are a few little secrets to get the most out of the boat).I can highly recommend the Hysucat for extreme fun, safety and a soft ride!
Good luck, ORDER it now, you won't regret it
