Is it true what I was told about the Victory Cats?

I was just told that Victory's 2 newest x-cats have Doug Wright bottoms. Is that a true statement?

Yes - Looks like they think it wasn't good enough!

I dunno, I'm not saying it is. I was merely asking a question. I would have thought the money they are throwing at that the only changes would have to be for the better? Unless the boats have been specifically designed with something in mind. Like that 4 stroke effort or something?

I just wondered if there were any handling specifics that were better, or worse.
Could just be faster overall, would be interesting to study the hulls to see how they are different.

I am wondering WHY the Victory guy's just won't pop in and clear the air? If it's true and people know then they should just slip in and clear it...JMO!!!

Victory Team UAE

I recently saw a program on Abu Dabi TV about all the brilliant
UAE invented & manufactured stuff they put in their boats.


Reality is funding from oil gets these gentlemen the best gear money can buy from everywhere else than UAE.

Would be interesting to see how far Victory Team UAE,
would get without American & European knowhow, technology & products.

True they took two of the DW boats and re-deck'd them and are racing them but I am not certain that the boats that are winning are the DW bottom. Is FAZZA a victory bottom or a DW? Looks like a victory design. Victory has the resources to try what's best and race it and that's what it takes to stay on top as the 30' DW that has the american in is not as fast.
