Guys this is the first in the series, reviewing the Bass Cat Puma Hybrid which is the boat with the Champion 203 style hull under it. In the future ones i won't do the start where I go through all the criteria, but I wanted to show you what I'm looking at as I drive and fish in the boat each day. I'll drop part 2 tomorrow.

This is a great idea...give an outsider's look to all available options.

Thought it was funny when he said he was surprised that the Basscat was faster than his Ranger!

He was probably referring to the Champion hull.

I doubt he ever thought his (or any Ranger) would keep up with a true Bass Cat! cheers

Definitely referencing the Champ hull Cat. Darren Roberts went by me running up the lake in his Cat and it was like when one of those Warthogs dives on you over at Toledo, scared the poo out of me.

Ken I meant to mention this to you. Can you check the back wash on each boat as if you were running hard and pulled the kill switch? Another good criteria on ride.

so the 203 hybrid hull is the champ and the BC hulls melded together. it's not a recreation of the old 203 hull. No cut corners etc. like a champ.

Definitely talking about the Champion hull
This 203 Hybrid May be the slowest of the BassCat line but has the better ride, which is the bonus
I like the idea
