    Does anyone know of a resource where I could find the weight of the hull on a 36' Chris Craft AquaHome.

    These originally had inboard engines but I was wondering if it would be possible to power it with outboard power,

    Any help would be great. Thanks Fm

    They didn't make a lot of these and though I'm not familiar with the 36' version the 34' was around 6 tons. They came with single and twin inboards. You could bracket a few outboards on her butt, but frankly you be asking them to beat the water to a froth, trying to move the boat, not to mention the aft portions of the hull aren't designed for those types of loads.
