Gary was likely referring to the new Phantom (Google 'Phantom catamaran' and check out Phantom International - nothing to do with Hobie). http://www.phantom-international.com/

No question they really fast, however, they are also really twitchy, and this was from an I-14 sailor, they know about twitchy, and swimming.

My I-14 buddy said he got a deal, and offered me a half-share in a new Phantom, only CAD$32,000 before freight, taxes, duty.
Oh, and that's for delivery in Montreal.... we still have to trailer it 180 km to Ottawa.
I have been told that a new leather sofa comes first.....

The Hobie Alter 22 Special Edition is the boat Hobie should build. I kind of like the name. He was a very nice person even to a guy with a really old 16 in C fleet.
