That's a big piece of Tupperware, and not much prettier. The only way I can understand the styling is that they went for the easiest shape to weld up out of flat steel for the mold. I wonder what the structural details are; what they did to stiffen it up.

If its anything like a rotomoulded dinghy I had or some of the 15ft centre consoles we get in OZ it will be very heavy for its size, not good for a cat.

But they are quiet and the waves dont feel as hard

It's a STEALTH cat of course... why else would they have the sharp angled sides?
