    Pontoon power sail cruiser

    I was comparing boats on the Sail Calculator and in the second section you scroll through manufatured boats and listed was pontoon power sail cruiser. I googled it but found nothing. Has anyone ever heard of this or have info?

    Those skinny hulls are suppose to support all that weight? They must be at least ten feet deep.

    Gonzo; Perhaps this is a clever Photoshop pix wrought during a bout with a near empty rum bottle.

    Never heard of such a boat but I'm confident someone would have dreamed it up or even built one by now. No reason an enterprising individual could not build a downwind rig for an ordinary pontoon boat. Imagine flying a big and colorful spinnaker on a bargelike boat. The chute would have a Budweiser or Corona logo of course.

    OMG! Photoshop, I'll buy that.

    How about a kite on a Partyhut? LOL

    I assumed it was that power cat built as pontoons with a cab, the pontoons fold in for the road and thought they may have added a sail. I have seen it on Youtube, it's a kit/plans boat, but have no idea how to find it.
