Barrell, if I thought I had to paddle every boat in the world before forming some kind of opinion, I sure as hell would never have bought my Stealth. I put weight on the reviews of smart people who have paddled them.
I have heard the Catfish has good speed for a 12-footer. Better than most mono hulls of similar length, and great glide. It turns poorly and has mucho hull slap. That's the word. Oh, and its VERY light and stable enough to dance in.
When I said it was slow I was comparing it to glass boats of 15-16 foot. If you really want to know how it stacks up, bring it up to J-Bay. We can race it against a Dorado or my new Stealth, if it arrives in time. That would be fun.
