    Just fishin’ to see if anyone would be interested in collaborating on the design and prototype production of a 12-16’ powered catamaran.

    If so, I will take the first pass at a SOR and be willing to pay for the hull mold, but here is the general idea:

    - rotomolded hulls, relatively cheap, rugged (perhaps too heavy for foils?)
    - fiberglass hulls for prototype
    - two person capacity
    - retractable foils
    - lowest possible hp or e-hp to get up on foils; higher power capacity for faster cruising
    - easily trailerable

    If technically feasible, there could be a market for this, but I am mostly interested in testing the concept and making one.
