No, I know nothing about a cat as a gear boat, and when I run the grand next, it'll probably be on a 15' cat, tops. I'd love to take my little Legend, but unless I'm the PH like Mania (and can make everyone else carry the gear
), I'd never get enough stuff on it. But, it does load like a dream, but I was lucky enough to have good advice from many others running the exact same boat. I found it not to be particular, as I unloaded it over 6 days, I just found surfing to get easier and more pleasant.
The right Buzzards for this Question are Rich and Dgosn. Rich since he boats in CO (I know there are others out there also....), and Dgosn, because he rips it up on a huge gear cat. His cat is Monstrous, yet he rips it up on high water Lochsa, and high MF Salmon. Keep in mind, I believe he's getting a little Sotar Legend.
There's also been some talk on bigger cats over on the GCPBA yahoo group.
