A few new innovations on the new Cat models. That reflex flooring and new slam style latches look very functional. Seems Mr. Pierce is always thinking outside the box. I don’t own a Cat but it would be on my short list if I was in the market.

Top cap looks like a jig saw puzzle, I like BC but not really a fan of that one. Was told that boat will run 85 with a 300R, dammit.

If that is the Puma STS they say it will hit 75 with the 250 on it and 2 people in it.

The Eyra is a different story though.

Low 80's with the 250 and 87 with the 300R on it. cheers

Not one piece of plastic in a Bass Cat. There is not a boat built with the all around quality of a Cat.

I’m a fan of the brand. But they are or have been until recently using the same damn glovebox since the 80s. I'm sure the boys in Mountain Home are like, well if ain't broke, don't fix it. But it is really ugly and they've gotten over 20 yrs of good use out of that plastic mold - time to update the look fellas.

And that triangle on the back deck where the motor vitals are connected needs to be squared off. It is a tripping hazard especially with sandals. I’m speaking from a non boater standpoint obviously.

I might add same with the hinge pins on the back deck - I like that the entire cover can lay over flat and you can even remove it. However, having raised hinge pins is a hazard on the back deck. And forget about fishing in bare feet because you won't want to step on one after 11 am. They need to come up with a different design for those two areas of concern in my opinion.

But I do like the product but they’ve never asked me to participate in a round table on product development unfortunately.

That's one of the negatives. I fished out of the back of one and almost went in a few times tripping over it.

I know the light gray is the reflex flooring, is the dark gray, that outlines the reflex, carpet? Looks good.

I almost bought a Basscat before my 2nd Skeeter, but just couldn't get past the bow...the forward trolling motor foot pedal and the area for mounting graphs all seem awkward...other than that they are really nice boats

Ken Smith posted a video on his YouTube of this boat. I'll see if I can find it

Looks like an air conditioning vent in the middle of the floor.
