First "water test" for the bug
« on: December 04, 2016, 07:51:59 PM »
 
At least the hull.

Water opened up and we splashed the hull in .

It felt quite "Nimble" and very stable.
It'll be better with another 400 pounds in the back.

Looks good. One thing I'm curious about is the effect of the catamaran style combined with the flat bow with the Cats being so close. Might you get an unacceptable amount of splash into the boat or on crew, from the center where the two wakes will meet ? I'd want to load it with working weight and tow it at speed to see what happens. I might be barrowing trouble but best to cover all the bases.

My guess, too, but the boat looks like a winner, D!

The walk way between the cats and the back 3 feet will be covered with expanded Aluminum with water proof Nylon boat fabric . No water will splash in to the boat or on to the prop.

I should have known you already had that covered, D. She runs pretty good, I bet.
