Saw this today.
Looks like a surf boat with cat hulls either side!

Wonder if they need a sweep at the back to help those little cat rudders

Saw a slightly higher tech version on Sydney Harbour last summer.

Aptly named:




Stingray hulls? Tornado?

Cobra or Mosquito more likely, Stingray had the beams go through the side of the hulls.

I've seen this done several times, and one won the Bay to Bay race on handicap a few years ago IIRC. I see plenty of merit in the concept.

The idea is that you can use the rig hulls and rudder from an existing cat. If you are lucky even the centre hull could be modified from a mono.
As we know tris are isually pretty quick.
