HAHAHA Thanks FishExcutner, where did you get the pic of Free Spirit? This was our old butt built by A&G in 2005. Extremely good boat and took her through that Port Alfred mouth when no other boat would try...

Punched and faced a few massive waves in that boat, in the deep countless times, runs to bird island. Only thing i had against the boat is that it was more 'level' when compared to other butts with their bows high... Makes for an interesting ride in a big following sea.

She had twin Johnson 140's and performed beautifully, i trust them with my life literally as i had an incident at sea where they pulled through... They are after all Suzukis!

A few more pics of Free Spirit:

Being built:

heres a pic of Miles 33ft butt cat, open transom designed for taking big seas, waves over the front runs straight out the back. Also if your decks dirty just reverse hard into the sea and let the sea wash it clean :SSS

Good luck with the new page!

Nice boats and nice pics!

:wfish:wfish:wfish

As they say Thika, keep your friends close, but keep your enemies even closer! haha :SSS Thanks man, now at least we have a fair contest.

Now.. go along.. scurry back to your ace-craft castle.

and we have a mutual agreement.. no butt cat fan will say anything bad about ace-crafts on the ace-craft fan page, and no ace-craft fan will say anything bad about butt cats on the butt cat fan page. ::cop:


Wrong!

Batcats stink!!!!

See the light

BFC jealousy makes you nasty my friend! Sure kamassi would think your a bit of a wanker for that low blow, rightly so.

Graphics are temp and yes not the greatest but when you on this rig you are too happy to even realize!

working on name and logo for the boat with graphic designer and than Vega Graphics will be doing the product, the leaders in boat wraps in SA. but ends up costing more than a 16ft ace that sticker so in no rush, would rather buy fuel.

neither do i, it seems BFC likes to cause *** as no one pays attention to his projects. as stated before the 21ft butt cat was made over 1000 times. Im guessing that ace craft didnt make that many through all of there models. builders where house graphic or pep store stainless it has been tried and tested and at the moment they are one of the leaders in the market. they should start making Kamassi 16 - 20 ft monos. would def be better than the ACE prob take over the small mono market. :sval::ssswim::ssswim:

I just thought that when you spend 700k-1mil + for a boat
at least they will use some graphics that look a little different than A RDP mailbox - nothing really to do with the boat just finesse and finishing

here is a little class , off an old 14,6ft Ace built in 1979.- just a suggestion.
