Default Fish Cat Cougar

Just read a sales article on the fish cat cougar with the quad pontoon design. Does anybody have any experience with this toon? If so, any benifits to the quad design over the standard??? Article claims it tracks better, increases load capacity and offers less wind resistance.......any real world experience info with this particular craft would be appreciated.
The head, the tail, the whole damn thing

Fishstick, I took this pic of my fishcat several months a go afte I added my own standing platform.. I since have made a more shallow standing platform and raised it 3 inches to keep it out of the water. I also made wider the pontools from 60 inches to 66 inches. You can make up your own mind however I do like mine to fish from. I am sure there are alot of them that are fish great. Now I want a kiak too.

I've had mine 3 years now. Love it. Added a larger platform to the back for my dog, Gunner, an 80 lb lab. My friends have the single large tub units and I feel mine does seem easier tokeep in line and is a lower profile so goes better down stream into the wind. The only fault I have found is in the rubber keeper for the oars. Seems to move, even when tightned HARD! I have wrapped rope around the oar as an extra support to help hold the rubber keeper in place. If your interested email me and I'll send you a couple of photos.
