coast. I would be using the Aspen for fishing
in comfort. Any feed back would be appreciated.
This is a follow-up about our visit to the Aspen factory. We visited the factory a few times, and took two different test rides on the C107 Cat. We were very impressed with both Larry and Nick Graf…and the factory and it’s organization.
Our first test ride was in relatively calm waters… And Nick piloted us around the wakes of the ferry
to give us a feel of a little rougher waters. Fortunately, while we were still there, the weather
took a turn for the worse and we had the opportunity to experience rough seas like we might here in NC. Larry Graf took us out late in the afternoon when the winds were 25 knots (with 40 knot
gusts) and the seas were kicking up ‘washing machines conditions with a constant 3-4 foot chop. We were incredibly surprised and impressed with both the handling and the ride of the C-107 given these unfavorable conditions. I mean.....truly surprised. The Aspen handled much betted than my 29’ World Cat does in similar conditions! The next day we were back in the factory with Nick and Larry placing our order. I am set right now to take delivery
in July 2021 of my new Aspen C-107...and I can’t wait!
