Catamaran from 2 ea 26s or d's?

Yes, I have had 3 beers.

Anyone ever considered it? :)

I mean, it would take a significant amount of engineering, but ... we all have Mac's so... don't call me the weirdo.

Hmm... thats almost as good an idea as mine. I wanna take a 4 jon boats and make a big tunnel hull out of them. Weld two bow to stern and then join the two halves together with a deck and cabin structure.

Ok - no more beer for either of you.

Actually, my three beer dream is a trimaran 26m with amas. Sort of a budget Corsair or Farrier.

So, no more beer for me either.

I don't know that a cat 26s or d has been done, but why not? Given enough money and desire anything can happen. Go for it! Now, about the Jon boat tunnel hull...

Seapup for the win! Seapup your profile says your in Va Beach. I grew up in Va Beach and went to Green Run before joining the Navy. Next time I'm down we should grab a beer at Lendy's

Yup, VB is home most of the year, except for summer when we live on the boat. I am back on land and back to work next week. This thread caught my eye since I replaced my :macx: with a catamaran....so bolting two..or three macs together certainly ran through my mind a few times :D
