I don't know if this will make any difference to your thinking or
not. It's my understanding that catamarans do not plane and that they
go fast because of the narrowness of hulls providing a very high hull
speed. I don't know about Trimarans with the center hull wider they my
plane on the center hull and just have high hull speeds on the outer
hulls. I have no idea if this applies to what you are doing but thought
to throw it out for consideration.
