Hello Thomas, We all love the boat. Compared to the Caesar, there is no comparison. T-Cat (Aka HammerHead), is far more stable. During hard water ski cuts, well not so hard as it was not very smooth, T-Cat steered straight. The boat throws no wake. It is a delight to ski behind. That’s it. The boat is terrific. The details are great. The pump fits all the fitting. All the pump fittings are the same. She does not leak air. The forward storage in the airfoil is great. My sons feel that there is less of a feeling that the bow will rise up and flip compared to the Ceasar.

Hi Thomas, Hope this email finds you and Dux Boat both doing well. T-Cat is being enjoyed by all. Love the boat. My son and 7 of his milliner aged friends went for a ride. After my son balanced the boat out T-Cat got up on top and everybody loved the ride. 25-30 mph.That is amazing that a 150 pound boat with a 200 pound, 50 HP motor, can put on plane almost 1,500 pounds. If you include the motor’s weight that is 1,700 pounds! We were in a dingy parade and a number of people asked what it was. She still looks and performs great. We figured out how to water ski with one person in the boat. A large trash bag gets filled with 20 gallons of sea water, 160+ pounds secured to the bow. When finished skiing we poke a hole in the bag and let the water run out the transom.

3rd Summer in my DUX HammerHead (T-Cat) Hi Thomas, Hope things are going well for you. Boating season started 4th of July. Cleaned up T-Cat with the 303 Protectant. Put 2, 4, 9 psi of air in the inner, outer, and high jacker, and ran the heck out out the boat for 5 days over the 4th. Ran fine and never had to add air. She still looks great and gets a lot of attention at Catalina.
They went over the whole boat and addressed potential issues and fixed a few things in the shop. Well we have become very good friends since then, even a few more trip’s without the boat. Tom has always been very honest with me, I know and heard all the story’s and had contract with some of them. In all there’s only a few people that had a gripe, and they were all competitors and one really nasty person whom would not use his name.
So here’s the thing, Dux boat’s builds one hell of a boat as with all of his products. My boat is A 2001, I have since modified it a lot! I put a 115 hp in line six Mercury, that is ported so it’s very strong running, I did put gusset’s from the floor to transom for additional support for wt and hp the boat it self has not been touched. This boat has been clocked at over 86 mph (gps) and been doing it all year long, two to four times a week. I love my boat it’s a lot of fun. The jet skis can’t keep up, in fact most boat’s can’t either. what I’m saying is this is one strong rubber boat.
I run in the Sacramento river and some time’s has a lot of junk floating in it, I never got a hole in it from hitting it, I try not to but this Boat is moving fast. I would let my mother drive this boat it’s that safe. It Handles great, turn’s like a F-1 boat, it’s just a great boat! By the way I’m 65 year’s old and plan to keep going fast, I know the new boat’s are even better and I look forward to getting one so I can hit that 100mph mark, I’m not worried about the boat handling it. See my video’s on YouTube; Rogers fast Dux. Very cool Tom! If you want too go fast too, get a hold of me and tom and we will make you one.
