Re: Kit Cat

Since you started this thread I rekindled an interest in Kit Cats. There is a 40 footer with a bigger cabin and flybridge on the East Coast of Florida I am curious about.

Re: Kit Cat

Did you end up buying the Kit Cat? If so I would like to hear how she performed when you delivere(d) her.

Re: Kit Cat

I did not end up buying the boat. More issues than I wanted to deal with.

Re: Kit Cat

Would you care to elaborate about the issues either in the forum or a pm? I have a slight interest in the boat if it is worth looking at.

Re: Kit Cat

Sorry. Couldn't respond to the pm for some reason.

Here were the problems:

Really, really bad smell inside the boat. Could not locate it. Not sewage. Like wet dog. Water in getting in so maybe it's wet carpet.

Engines sit too low in the water. Will not tilt all the way up so lower units stay in the water a bit. Bad pitting on lower units. Need to be replaced.

Fuel tanks held in place with untreated uncovered 2x4s. Boat looked very "home made" to me overall.

Cracks in front sponsons from stress.

Headroom of 6' too low in salon. I'm 6'2".

Generator placement was crazy. Water can get right in. They were very rusty and only one would start. Also very loud when running.

Port engine died repeatedly. We came back in from sea trial on one in fact.

Wiring looked like it would be a nightmare to chase down and fix as needed. Looked amateurish and hacked up and spliced into too many times.

Autopilot inop. Ram bad on engine.
