Lightbulb Hi Everyone ... Who's got the Wally Cat?

Just got the bug to pack it all in and do a little more cruising than what is available on land. So... started looking for forums. Hey look what I found!!Time frame = 2 years, start shopping now. Wish list: Prout 45 or 46, would prefer a new one, or an equivilant style, design, build, layout, or.... someone point me in the direction of a Wally Cat?
Two great scouting weekends coming up in Florida, so I'll go have a look. Currently on the Gulf in a 2005 SC23 Mariah, which is nice to be able to spend a few days away in, but I really have a bad case of 22'-itis and a little more beam. The Mrs. wants 2 500 hp offshore get there PDQ with a big galley. Haven't seen one of those yet.
One newbie question for the time being; Why don't I see more PWC's hanging off of the back of cats? Weight? Any insight would be appreaciated. Might have to get a bigger cat.

MNDWGZ, Welcome aboard

We have a thread catagory just for you!

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...splay.php?f=48

As for your question " Why don't I see more PWC's hanging off of the back of cats? Weight? Any insight would be appreaciated. Might have to get a bigger cat."

IMHO I believe it is due to wind shear and it adds weight above the COG (center of gravity). On a heavier Cat it would be more acceptable................_/)

Thanks delmarrey, been there, that's why I signed up. The most informative forum I've found so far. How about hanging that puppy under the mast? Doh ... Now I need a taller cat! BTW I need bike (2 pedal types, 1 1976 BMW = 360lbs) storage too.

Aloha,
Welcome aboard!! You'll find this forum full of people with good information and lots of opinions. My sailing experience is so far removed from yours that I won't comment.
Kind Regards,
JohnL
