Re: Sailing and Diving Video 1160 Lite Catamaran

Great video. Hope the tangled net didn't do any damage to your gearbox.

Planning some diving in Vietnam in next couple of weeks and i hope that dive vessel is half as good as yours.

Great underwater footage! Thanks for sharing.



Don't know what can be done about damaging fishing practices.

How about a deposit on fishing nets? They pay 2x the cost, when the net is handed back in, the get x back.

Serial numbers can be embedded in the line. Adrift nets found can lead to penalties.

Hard to imagine improvement in a region where dynamite fishing around reefs has been so pervasive.

Re: Sailing and Diving Video 1160 Lite Catamaran

Interesting video Thanks

I always worry that an outboard powered cat carries enough fuel for extended voyages in the equatorial zones around Indonesia where the is often lack of wind and currents. One certainly doesn't want to be chasing fuel in local villages.

Good feedback that you can run a A/c off a Honda genset.

Hi Andrew l find the fuel bladders are great to ensure you never run out as well as save a lot of money on fuel as Telaga is much cheaper than Singapore and Thailand.

Great video

Hi Wayne,

the bladders look like a great idea and I actually have more space in the forward petrol locker so will look into this. The standard fuel tank on the Lite is 270 Litres which gives around 40 hours of motoring @ 7 knots with the Hondas (20hp) so the extra bladders would be very helpful to increase the range.

Re: Sailing and Diving Video 1160 Lite Catamaran

well done mate, very nice vid! A couple of questions. We dont have a genset either and considering refilling dive tanks. What is that compressor? Is there no 240V compressor that will run off the Honda 2000 ( it would be nice to have the motor multi purposed..)
Also a bit surprised you would motor on 2 engines anyway. Fuel economy wise you are burning twice the fuel for 20% additional speed?

Hi Monte,

The compressor is a Bauer Junior, Petrol engine.
JUNIOR II high-pressure compressor, diving, ship compressor, paintball

I looked at options for the electric but you need a large genset (bauer say its 2,2KW but no one has been able to tell me what the startup KW would be?) to start the compressor each time. The best low start compressor I have heard about is the NuvAir (230v/14 AMP),(https://www.nuvair.com/store/mch6-portable.html) might be worth checking them out but they still wont start on the Honda 2K genset, think the startup on this NuvAir is still over 20 Amps but best contact them directly re the specs.

The Honda genset runs the 12,000 BTU nicely and also keeps the batteries fully charged, Only PIA is that you have to have the space to move the unit around. When sailing at the stern, and then when at anchor move the genset to bow area.

"Why Run Both Engines"
You need to run both engines around the Straits here as it is a heavily trafficked zone with very large ships, every knot counts when you have a 150m tanker bearing down on you. Normally we try to run/sail as fast as we can in the first 70 nautical miles and then switch to single motor or sail after we are well clear of the main shipping lanes. Have tried sailing before (sail only) in these zones and its just a PIA as sail does not have right of passage anywhere along the straits. This includes fishing boats that are everywhere!!!
