Outboard placement

I'm still up in the air between building and buying. I want a displacement or semi displacement power cat. I have been studying for sometime and curious what the thought process is between placing the outboards centered in the rear of each hull, cheating them to the center but still on the rear of t...

Skoota without plywood

I read on one of the threads that some of the Skoota's were designed for foam and some for plywood. How do I know which models designs are available as foam or plywood? Is anyone building with plastic honeycomb? I think someone posted (Fallguy maybe?) was using plascore for upper structure but not h...

Re: E-Cat 24

Well checking in to see if there are any E-Cat 24 builds yet?? This still speaks to me. I wish it were a little more power and a little faster. I'd like to ideally reach 25 kts but I could live with 20. I've thought about building a Woods but just with a deck to get a little more speed but I like t...

Re: E-Cat 24

The EC24 still speaks to me. Can you give me an estimated freeboard empty and at load capacity?

Thanks

Building a Pixie 14 or Quattro 14, 16

I am interested in building an ECAT 24 but my son thinks we need a smaller fishing boat sometimes. Would it be practical to build a beach catamaran with a lightweight deck and equip with a 5 hp outboard at the stern and a foot controlled trolling motor at the bow? Would this be too much weight with ...

E-Cat 24

Has anyone built an E-Cat 24? I'm new, hello. I have a composites background but not in boatbuilding, mine is in automotive a little in aerospace. I have a friend that owns a fiberglass boat company. For me, they are overweight, over powered and overly expensive. He builds one model with twin 300 Ya...
