    To take the idea of one outward angled board like on the Slingers and Slider to an extreme, imagine the below NACRA F20 FCS with only one board which is pointing to the outside . . :eek:

    P.S. - the F20 FCS (Flight Control System) owner's manual pdf, the primarily dagger foil fore-aft rake and height settings are on page 23-24 of 28.

    Oh well, just saw in the quote I've made the same mistake in the middle, not so easy two Slingers and one Slider . . :eek:

    Damn, busted again, I've just posted how to make Diesel / Mazout / Broadway (thread: Songs about Boats, in post #346), and now I'm caught on two Slings (1 - 2*) and a Slider . . :rolleyes:

    * how to video

    Myself and my brother in law both own beach cats. If it wasn't for going through a divorce I would likely have gone down to Texas for the Texas 200. I think my generation (millenials) are much "cheap"-er (as in frugal to a fault) than our parents (although my parents are also quite frugal), with some exceptions in certain areas. We also tend to be "green", so the "have fun for free" aspect is appealing. And the Wharrams definitely have a "vintage" feel to them, which is a plus.

    After looking it over, it seems to me that the bend in the beams would allow for water to drain to either side (with the deck following the beam) in the decking between the hulls.

    To riff on your idea a bit:

    I fovor a a low freeboard for less material and less weight, double-ended (or very close to it) demountable hull cat in the ~21 ft class. Preferably that can be made entirely from scratch. Being the somewhat sheepish owner of a Prindle 16, I think the idea of beachcat mast and sails is much nicer than the reality of beachcat sails and mast. The Prindle mast is 20-something feet and is entirely too long to be raised comfortably by one person (or really even by two unless you have the pin for the mast step, which I do not). I've been temped to cut off the top 5ft of mast and sail, and I actually think that might make the boat more fun. I'd be tempted to do a balanced lug or a junk rig.

    For going upwind, I like the Kohler vortex generators, or possibly a single swinging board (lee or center).

    I would skip the full vee hull. I really think it's unnecessary as narrow as the hulls will be. Honestly, I think I would even make the ends into little scow bows. I think the knife edge bows are likely not as necessary as they are popular.

    My favorite option posted here so far is the Mr. Toad skiff cat. Switch to a simpler rig, do the Kohler vortex generators, and some nice large low aspect ratio kick up rudders and I think you've got your boat.
