    I am looking for a cat plan around 24 feet that will take around a 250 HP motor to run on the great lakes. I have built three v hulls already and would like to find a cat desinge.
    Any help would be great
    Thanks

    Do you think twin motor cats are better then a singe motor cat? I know they have both but in my mind I was just thinking it would be cheaper to build a single. I already have a 250 vmax yamaha that is on my boat now.
    I have never looked at or priced out twin motors before. I am running my boats in a bass seires and all bass boats are singles. I do think for a safty factor the twin motors would be the best way to go. We run over a 100 miles alot of days and we run out on the great lakes.
