    Hi guys,

    I have a small ASV poject, and I have decided to use a Catamaran Hull (mono-hull). Since I do not have any mechanical background, I though not to waste time on the mechanical part.
    I would like to know where/how I can find a small "Catamaran Hull" with the maximum size of : 6 foot (1.8 meter) long, 3 foot (0.9 meter) wide, and 3 foot (0.9 meter) high.

    Thanks in advanced ^_^ xD

    You need to explain.
    A Catamaran hull which you then call a monohull?

    A cat is two hulls, a mono is one.

    What are you doing?

    6'x3'x3' will look like a shoebox, I can't imagine anything that tall.

    If you really mean a single hulled boat why so deep of a hull?

    How will this be powered? (I don't recognize ASV)

    If you are thinking of using one catamaran hull as a monohull you will never find one at those dimensions. :rolleyes:

    sorry, neglect the term, "monohull" my mistake xD ^_^
    Well ASV stands for "Autonomous Surface vehicle". Basically it is not meant to carry a human. I will be using T200 Thruster which whole system runs over 90 Amh, 12V electric battery.
    Basically my concern is the mechanical part itself, and whether I can find Catamaran, with the maximum size of 6'x3'x3'.Yeah i know such size looks like a box, i just need it for research purposes.

    umm no no sorry my mistake ^_^ please neglect the term monohull xD
