catamaran speed boats?

right,
just recently I've surfing ebay and gumtree and all those others places where hidden gems lurk!

And I've seen few and far between in the way of catamaran speed boats? really interesting stuff some of them
(okay not the likes of the big ones like miss geico and alike!) but smaller ones?

questions how do they run with single engine are they stable??

any photo examples be good?

cheers

Catamarans

Twin rigs you (I) tend to break them relatively easily, gearboxes need to be in good condition infact excellent or don't bother as that's where you'll have your first set of problems, then the hull its self could do with being either very good condition (preferable not wood;-)) and as exceptionaly strong or again big problem, I'm sure there is the exceptions but that is my experiences and still not having to much fun, getting a cheap hull usaully means your getting what you pay for,

I have an Twister 23 for sale. Probably the fastest tunnel hull there is. in that size. world record UIM class 3C with 200xs is over 97knots without separate water pickup.
So he couldnt lift higher. And that was the twister 24.
interested ? PM
