World Cat Dealer Surf & Offshore in Point Pleasant NJ has the 29DC in their inventory, with twin Hondas on it. Nice boat. There is also a demo day on 17 May starting at 1000 hrs till 1600 hrs. and it will be in the water with other cats. :idea:

I like the new 29CC except for the front seats. What was WC designing, a fishing boat or pleasure boat. The only time you will utilize front seats is when you are idleing around. What the hell was WC thinking :?: . The front seats are taking up valueable fishing room. I hope the TE (if they make one) looses the seats and gains about 50 more gallons of fuel :ugeek: .

The front seats are better than the storage box in the front of the 33TE. They look like great lounge seats while trolling to me!!!

:o You are dreaming my friend! That coffin box was awesome! Geez, why do you see so many offshore boats with them? Coffin box = Full walk-around, flat deck, sure footed, fishability to the gunnels, with BIG storage in the useless "no fishing zone" of the boats centerline. I don't have the coffin box in the 07 like I did in the 04, and I miss it. I can't say that I see your point... at all... unless you fish with surf rods, or enjoy stubbing your toes.

:ugeek: The 2' or less loungers should stick to the DC models instead of suggesting to WorldCat that EVERY model, including the CC's, should double as a cocktail cruiser!

:oops: I say bring back the Leisure Cat model.

I was refering to the "cabin" on the 33, maybe I am too damn big, cause I will never fit in that "cabin". I would rather see no cabin on the 33 with more fishing room. However, Brian informed me that the 33 cannot have an open fordeck or have forward seating due to weight issues, he said, if you put a bunch of people in the front of the boat on the 33TE, the engines will come out of the water. The 320EC can take more weight forward due to the wider sponsons in the front of the boat, but if you made the hulls wider on the 33, you loose the great ride.

Sail,

I am not a very big guy and I would not want to sleep in the front cab of the 33 but I love it for dry storage. The big raised front deck also makes it nice when casting top water for tuna :D .

The 29ft that you have designed is an SF correct. When do you expect to design a TE? This is my opinion for a tournament edition 29 World Cat. At least the way we use these world Cats.

There are 4 issues when laying out a boat.
1. Gear
2. Live Bait
3. Fish Box
4. Drinks and food

Layout
1.Return to the dual live wells in the rear. This allows you to load up on bait separating your Hardtails and Pinfish when rolling offshore, or allow you to use one to put trash in. In my opinion, there has not been a boat manufacturer that has tackled the issue of where you put cans, powerade bottles, plastic sandwich bags, sabiki wrappers, etc. when you fish. We accumulate a lot of waste with 4-5 men on an overnighter fishing frozen bait.
2. Option between a full tackle center and a leaning post with icechest at bottom. Full Tackle Center allows you to relieve the floor of tackle boxes, but leaning post with icechest allows for plenty of drinks and food for a long day or 2 of fishing.
3. Take out that seating/storage in the front and bring back the coffin box. You accomplish similar uses, but the coffin box gives you musch easier fshing up to the side of the boat especially when trying to live bait fish off of the front. And the coffin box is easier to transfer ice to the fishboxes using an ice shovel. use bean bags for seating as you can lounge up front and put in back for long runs in rough water.
4. 33 TE type storage but dont need to connect to make a cabin. That type of access with storage being water tight is nice.
5. Remember the 420 quart fishboxes...I do and they rocked except that they needed more insulation.
6. 600HP
7. 300 gallons fuel
8. If you want to put a windshield up to the t-top it needs to either have a windshiled wiper or be able to drop down like the Everglades. Running the gulf at night sucks when you can't see whats in front of you if you have any spray on the windshield (and when don't you)

The everglades innovations are great in the fact that we don't have to live with them if they dont work...Everglades owners do....Many of them are un realistic for the environment and wide usage requirements. plus I don't think my butt would fit in one of those fitted seats. At least comfortably...

Let me get back to work and I will think a little more about this...

More ideas for the 290TE/320TE/350TE:

Move the fuel forward and the kill boxes aft...that way the boat will not go bow down as the fuel is used up since it will sit on the CG.

Dicth the tuna door...I've pulled 200+ lb YFTs over the gunwale and would hate to try to leader a fish around to bring him between the motors...put one on the side a la Sea Vee instead.

Once the tuna door is eliminated, you can put a built in cooler/trash can between the livewells or even an optional extra fuel tank that holds 75-100 gallons.

Definitely have 300 gallons of fuel and twin 300 qt kill boxes. Make the coffin box optional or removeable.

Don't put built in steps in the forward storage...a single step (removeable?) would be much better if you intend to use the space as a cabin (which you need for a vacation home IRS tax break).

Put the batteries on the floor of the console instead of back under the livewells...that will make room for the most needed upgrade...

A pair of diesels with straight shafts for the 350TE/convertible or Merc Bravo3 drives for the 290/320TE.

Don't forget the shower nozzles, cup holders, forward dining table, lounge seats, refrigerator w/small ice maker for drinks!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot the most important item on a TE... a coctail blender!!!! :geek:
