    Re: 7 M Rollinator Real Facts.......

    Foxy,

    What year Coastal Cat did you ride in. Speaking for my own lil experience
    the 06 Comericial Hull is a Far Superior Hull to any of the prior hulls.

    Kerry,

    I have a question I would like answered, Why is it that even keeping in mind that guys like Foxy love there Boats and talk for highly about them. Yet there are more Dominators roll that most other Cat / Hull Design?

    Kiltz,

    The subject is Dominators, and in this case one very particular Dominator plus perhaps a few (more than few) of the same!

    Why the hell you are bombarding this subject with other totally irrelvant crap is way beyond me?

    If you want to show off something else then feel free to do it in another thread as just about none of your posts have anything to do with the actual subject what so ever so give it a rest !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I assume that this post is about a long time skipper who has been blamed for a boating incident by both the retailer and the manufactor with the story( when we righted the boat the throttles were fully open , you make up your own mind)finally defending his reputation and giving his side of the story.

    hope this clear`s that up..

    Regards, Kerry.
    Kerry. i havent seen any dominators with foils, i was refering to the ones setup for test driving at the dealership.
    Last time i spoke to markham (which was a long time ago) i think the number of 7 meter boats built was over 120.

    Foils? Did it have foils at the time of the "incident" or not?

    Im a little bit heavy on the throttle most of the time and having used the boat commercially ive found myself fishing in conditions that i probably shouldnt have been out in.
    I cant really comment on this roll over because all i know of it is what ive read here. But what i have observed is that the newer dominators sit a little different in the water to mine. Mine is usually loaded different to most, with bigger fuel tanks, a 1000 litre ice box etc, so it sit's a bit lower in the rear end. The floor is also a bit lower in the hull then the latest models.
    The test boats are awfully light and are very bouyant in the rear. The engines require plenty of trim to get the best out of the hull. Not as much as a noosacat, but still plenty all the same. This is opposite to the coastal cats that like the engines tucked well under.
    Kerry , i havent seen any foils on any of the boats.
    Julian, ive been out in most the major cat brands, the coastal is a smoother riding hull then most, it rolls more under way then the dominator and is alot slower due to its semi displacement design, but every design has its trade off's. I like them, but i like most cats.
    To sum up, i feel safe in my rig and ive done enough in it to know its capabilities it'll get me home safe, we all need to remember any 7 meter cat or mono of any make is not bullet proof, the ocean will win everytime, i hope all this court bussiness gets soughted out soon ...foxy

    Hi Foxy,

    One thing that i found interesting was when the Northside rep was taking her for a spin he had the motor`s trimed right down ..Q when i asked him bout the trim set , He Said , NO don`t need to touch them that`s the way they like it. I thought this was interesting..I said you know best mate sorry to ask.

    I noticed you mentioned your Hull requires trim for the best possible ride,as does the Coastal cat`s.Wy would the Rep be so sure on this .

    Your thoughts ?
