Just bought my first Cat 2018 Caracal my question is a 45 inch Ultrex or just say the heck with it and get the 52. Iím thinking 52 better to have it than not. Only reason I question it is I donít know how the boat sits when on the TM.

52" on my 2015 Cougar and it's nearly all the way down. I wouldn't want it any shorter.

I have a 2004 Basscat Cougar and I have the 45 on mine. I felt the 52 would cover up too much deck space. I haven't had a problem with it being too short.

I have the 45 on my 21 foot triton, would not have it any other way, I don,t fish much open water but when i have it was not a problem, if your boat sits nose high you may want the 52.

The 52" is on order. From my experience the Caracal is a flatter sitting Bass Cat compared to a puma or cougar. I look forward to seeing Lance's boat once we are finished rigging it. I have fell in love with the Caracal's layout and performance!

Congrats on the Caracal. Love the layout of that boat. Post this on the BCB forum and you'll get some responses from Caracal owners.
