Re: Outboards on 35' Catamaran

Will a couple of outboard lift brackets work?

Yeah, we've talked about that. The boat had a comfortable helm seat (it needs replacing, but it's just a matter of buying one) at the inside helm, the external helms are just for racing and berthing purposes mainly. It's really a decision for Bryan. The covers are strong enough to stand on, so seats could be mounted on them.

Re: Outboards on 35' Catamaran

I have two cats with that setup. The whale tails do help as does angle of attack. Depth is always the answer. Even a diesel with a sail leg cavitates unless they are mounted in the amas. I have a Prout that was converted similar to your Picture. I am pulling the Yamaha 25s and replacing with the Honda 15s because I move from a 20in depth to 28. My Iroquois has the Yamaha 9.9s (25). I have a moveable mount and keep the motor low and have no cavitation issues.
