Thank you , but I'm a sucker for punishment . At least my welding skills improved dramatically .
Your project has features that I and probably a lot of other guys never dreamt of . The wiring , computer integration , one could go on and on . It's trully a hand built one off .
I had noticed the Callan boats in earlier posts . I've travelled faster on water than I have in any car including my Murcielago . I actually feel safer and more stable strapped in and on the ocean . This probably isn't logical but I love the way cat's fly . I think you'll forgive me for posting these off track marine photos since you're into offshore speedsters also .
My favorite boat of all time the Chris Cat which I still own . My Fastest the Rodeo , which my boat company at that time built and now with a family my cruiser is a 42 Fountain with triple Merc SC's . I've been in and out of a lot of boats over the years and have broken more hullls than cars .
Best wishes to you in all your endeavours .

Cool Jimmy.

Those pics of the Chris Cat are awesome. The first cat we ever played with was a Chris Cat (300). And you have a 42 Fountain. Reggie used to park next to us at a ton of races - he's a funny guy. I'm kind of like you. 200+ on the water. Going 180 feels almost slow. You know what I mean.

That is cool. We are still building the boats (Mystic Powerboats) and are working on some stuff I can't really mention yet for our military. Just like the Camaros, once the cats are in your blood it is tough to get out. Feel free to post those shots anytime. Very cool shots !!

No Way ! Mystic Marine ? Cool !!
For anyone not familiar , these vessels are the Lamborghini Reventon's and Ferrari F150*'s of the ocean .
Now I know where all the super trickness comes from . I mean these boats are built using aerospace technology . I cannot exaggerate the cutting edge engineering in these vessels , our F-16 cockpits and hulls were archaic . My Chris was one of the first foam composite raceboats built but no carbon , no kevlar , no epoxy .
Awesome job !

Thanks for the compliments... If you ever are down this way, just yell. We can go over to the shop. Sounds like you have had/are having your share of fun too. Cool stuff.

Definitely post some videos of your Camaro after you get it tuned to your liking.


Hey !! Who put that hat and glasses on my Avatar? Now it DOES look like Robert...

Thanks, but I consider myself a Photoshop jester. I know just enough to get myself in trouble.
