I would like to see your pics but when I finally found your pics link (small) there is a bunch of junk on the page and one says to log in. I don't have one, and no I won't because I will not click on the "I accept" button.
Another way?

You are in luck. Cortland Steck, who has done a lot of the design modifications for Manta, along with designing their powercat has designed a 50 foot catamaran. Pat Reischman, who used to be a partner with Manta and is responsible for developing most of their construction techniques, systems and outfitting, is managing the building of them. Some details are here:

Wow, that FastWater 50 looks great. I wonder how much it will cost - over a mil for sure.

That Fastwater 50 looks like a good way to spend my next (first) Million ...
