    :) hi I am a design student at the arts scool in romania and i have this problem with a speed civil fluvial catamaran that has its engines in the midle side of the boat and the steering in the back. I believe that it is easier to be used so and that this way of arangement is offering an horizontal positioning.:!:

    I owned a catamaran that was outboard powered in that configuration. The motor was in a pod more less in the middle of the boat. I could turn it to act as a thruster.
