Re: Bolger's power mitihulls
- Here is the little power cat St Jan:
I'm partial to this design since I quite aside made a similar boat to
my own design, as a prototype for a charter cat, since kids have
enjoyed it. Bolger's was originally designed as a Yulloh testing
platform, if I remember correctly, so the hull shape may not be ideal
for power. Good concept though.
- Yes I had seen that one but was not sure if it was
PCB&Fs design or an idea someone had and used ideas
of PCB. But it's along the idea I have for a powercat.
I should send Phil a letter and see what he has to

for Yulloh testing therefore displacement hull stuff. After that
interest passed, it was used for the kind of thing in the picture, and
then it was passed on, and then it rotted out.
you have probably already seen this. But it comes as close to being
economical, fast to build, resaleable, and seriously useful as one is
likely to find, short of a personal design. One issue that I would ask
about first is that amas are not necesarily good models for powercat
hulls. The deal is for a few thou you buy pre-molded epoxy
glass "pans" that are just glued to whatever square box superstructure
you want to use. Or build the kit, or buy the boat.
