How good are Cray Boat's

Got a mate of mine who has almost completed a 45' Alloy powercat that he was going to take to Vanuatu as a charter vessel, and I was all up for the delivery of this boat.

He's just blown back into town, and has now decided to offload the cat, and has purchased an ex Cray Boat, and still want's me along for the delivery.

Now while i'm sure they are an excellent sea boat, they come from Tasmania afterall, I swore a couple of year's back never to do a delivery on another Mono.

I just have this impression in my head that these round bilge craft will roll their gut's out in a swell, which will equate to much spilling of rum, which just isn't right.

I haven't seen the actual boat yet, but reckon she'll be similar to the pic.

Anyone have any experience with these??
