What cat is it Kurt ? id say in all honesty that cat will out perform all your other boats both speed wise and handling wise with twin motors.Ive never heard of a big cat that doesnt handle well in rough water,you also might want to consider using an inline zen setup that way you will find it easier to get the motors running well as when running side by side you will allways have problems getting two engines to run equally but i guess you allready know that .Will you run twin props or single?, a mate of mine in Aussie is building one with twin props through a counter rotating gear box.Mind you for the inlines you will probably need to run zens not your beloved sikk  ;).You might want to join rcu and ask on there as there are lots of guys building big cats  or who have run them etc.Im planning a cat build for next year too so ive done quite a bit of research into them ,most guys reckon a big cat is the way to go .Have you seen the sonic cats? they will handle anything thrown at them and will accept two  inlines thats 4 zens or evn more which i believe one guy on rcu is planning in the future :o.heres a link to the sonic cats also look at these pics and see how well they handle the rough stuff  O0.
