Re: Ashley Holliday Cats

Catmando, So, I've been thru Wiki, Google and the forums and I still don't have a clue. What is a thruster design cat and what particular details make it a thruster? Have you got a pic? Are they called something else outside of OZ? BOB

The name in the bottom right hand corner of the plans

Nope
From my understanding there was only ever one.

I hope Ashley can produce a more accurate image for you

Re: Ashley Holliday Cats

So predictable, an educated,qualified,experienced designer creates something that the average beer guzzler can't!! and presto next thing you know out come mondays experts. Which is usually a secondhand alcohol induced load of GUFF anyway,I was always taught if you shoot your mouth of just for the sake of it,what usually comes out isn't worth listening to. Where would we be without designers and innovative idea's? hey I can answer that (dug out logs and a pole). For those who think a design is easy, grab a math book and give it a crack!! ALL DESIGNS have there merits,just a pitty it is easy to point out the bad and more effort may be required to COMPREHEND!! the good. The ash designs look good if you LOOK!

Re: Ashley Holliday Cats

So that's what a thruster is. A go fast cruiser/ racer. Very beamy. Interesting. Reminds me of a Conser. I wonder how you slow it down?
