Friend has a 5.5 Mystere platform and I've been saying this is what he needs to do with it.


Have Fun

great looking but needs center console steering and throttle to be comfortable to use, I'd guess. I wonder if that would be a workable modification given the small space.

The console probably needs to provide a lot of aft buoyancy too, for that heavy POS (I mean, motor) on the end.
Than means there can't be much of a catamaran advantage left after that mod, perhaps stability, but the wetted surface, steering and wave drag must be awful.

Looks like he has the remnants of a third hull under the center.
