More info needed on Cat

Anymore pics?

How much is it and what's it come with?

Condition?

I just bought the 23footer and love it thinking of going offshore as 2008 is last year of "Smelly" XR2 engines and with finals/Worlds in Guernsey seems too good to miss!

that extra length would be just what is needed..oh er missus!

Can you run XR2 upto worlds then go XS and still qualify?

Whats the best price for opti powerhead conversion?

Cheers

There are goin to be points awarded to national boats that run with the races at the worlds but you wont get any points awarded towards the worlds if your running xr2.

I assume you could run xr2 upto the worlds then change? But you would have to have a new measurement cert and new homologation papers. When you say conversion do you mean how much will it cost in total including rigging to convert to opti?

engine/powerhead(different tuner if ya gonna use your mid section and complete exhaust blank plate, not the one with holes in for xr2), genuine alien cowling, sportsmaster g.box(you cant run cle with opti), Smartcraft gauge/loom, thats about it off the top of me head?

I fully intend to flip the cat on a regular basis so no smartcraft for me!!

Seeing as so different probably just as well to buy complete engine?

Cheers
