    Golden Oldies The Pioneers

    Awesome video trip down memory lane, thanks for posting! That Dick Newick guy seemed to be kind of active in design, no?

    OE72 Catamaran - Launched Below The Radar

    Nice looking boat. Would love to know the headroom, actually looks higher in the cabins than the salon but that could just be how the vid was shot.

    Gunboat 72V

    So smaller doesn't have to equate to the same level of tech. Think iPhone Pro and iPhone SE. GLY could introduce that kind of tiering, and pricing. Maybe it dilutes the brand, but as with Apple, I don't think so. I think it lets them sell more boats.

    Gunboat 72V

    They should go small. The 48's are like unicorns, super rare and highly desirable. GLY seems to be in a mindset of go big or go home; we'll see how that plays out for them. Going small would open up new customers to them that aren't so uber-wealthy. I hope they're successful whatever direction...

    Gunboat 72V

    Not really surprised, it's just good business; these boats sell better than high-performance ones. If you're going to go there, this one is a nice looking option.

    If you're done IP networking, think of czone as a switched network.

    Handling a 65' cat compared to a 50' cat

    Totally on-board with cameras. Super useful and not exactly a high-maintenance system.

    Gunboat 80

    Beautiful boat! How much have the interior dimensions (head room, hull width, etc) expanded vs the 68?

    A bird blackcat in the hand water is worth two in the bush CG video.

    So 4 minutes separated Power Play and Argo in the end? That's a great battle!

    GB5508 Rebuild - Soma's Project

    Nevermind, I just read your comment in the Gunboay 68 thread that you went with the servo-prop. Hopefully you'll post back some real-world experience with it, it's very interesting technology.

    All electric boat setup / Moonwave

    If you have questions about the current Moonwave setup and it's performance, use the contact link on their website. I was curious if they thought an all-electric installation was viable on a platform like the Gunboat given their experience. Sebastien was kind enough to email back the next day...
