    To the Cat Builders, i need some help please.
    Will build a 12x26 cat for outboard only.
    Will be used for pots (winch), freediving, fishing, etc. So will not have an offical cabin, just a sun cover.
    I would also try the ariki rope method to attach the hulls. The question i have is shaping the hulls for these non-speed requirements. Could i go 4 feet high, 2.5 feet wide, semi v, spray guard, keel and flat stern for kiker? Thanks for any info. Yahooo

    You’ll need to begin your quest with a solid SOR!

    the aft cabin can be replaced by benches; just so you know, iirc Richard said the cabin or benches are a structural requirement and a tank or two of gas will last half the summer...it is a boat I really like...just a bit small for going up to Alaska

    A "kiker" I suspect is a "kicker", smallish outboard motor.
