    Seeing as this thread has been highlighted and given that I started it over a year ago with genuine interest about the 605 that was stated to be 'in build' by the magazine - lets see where we're at. This is what piqued my curiosity:





    Should be nearly built now - so would love to see some photos! All I can find on the Africancats website is computer models which is somewhat disappointing...

    Would either of the 2 customers reported in the CF thread like to give us some feedback too?

    3 years after it was announced as being built, it's now on the water - and gidders in in full-contact marketing mode.

    Looks like the Fastcats motors wouldn't power into a 15kt wind.

    Think you've got your links muddled, smj ... the one above is all about Cheap Rand.

    The one I think you're referring to is a post on CF. This appears on the GreenCat 605 First Pictures thread. The poster says:

    Saw this cat wash up on the reef in Bonaire last week. Those motors just did not work, he could not motor against 15 knot winds and went assfirst into the island of Klein Bonaire, just sayin'
    He is then asked by another poster if he's sure he got the right boat.

    I wonder if this is indeed true? Anyone able to shed further light?

    Original link was correct, and had the CF post, but forum software removed the CF and changed it to M4US.

    I know this procedure was initiated because CF childishly removed any M4US links, and thus Paul reciprocated.

    Personally I am tired of this childishness, and would much prefer to retain the moral high ground.

    Well, a little detective work and it seems the Bonaire reefing accident did indeed occur for Goudsmit's 605 prototype, called 5th Child, launched last year. The CF member who reported it has a blog, and he has made this entry under the photo of a tourist tripper boat:

    Fake sailing ship, packed with people off the cruise liner. (this boat later was involved in pulling a catamaran (5th Child) off the reefs on Klein Bonaire. (I am not totally sure of the circumstances, but the cat has electric propulsion, and just could not make headway against the wind and was blown onto the reef)

    My apologies to smj, in that case. Thanks for advising, Talbot.
