    I bought this boat while I was stationed at FT Rucker Alabama. I took it to a catameran shop at panama city and he couldnt ID it either. So any help would be appreciated. Here is my email below. Thanks

    It should have a HIN (Hull ID Number) Take this to the local CG (or try on line) and they can give you the manufacturer, the month and year it was made.

    Maybe an Aquacat from 20 to 30 years back. (I said maybe). The Aquacat was an entry level multi that sort of competed with Hobie when Hobie was in their heyday. Perhaps some other multi afficianados can get closer to a more certain identity. No matter what it is, it looks like a fun boat. From the looks of the aft sections, it might tack better than some of the other cats.

    I don't think so. I remember Aqua Cats with a lateen rig - this one obviously has two masthead sheaves and a sail track. Circumstancially, the rig looks like it was from the eighties. I think Aqua Cats also had a masthead tumor/float to make turtling hard.
