Monday, Got the boat out of its underground winter home, 1 mile down in a limestone mine.  Towed it 180 miles to cabin.  weather was great.

It snowed at the mine and at my camp today.  I got lucky.

Put a new Stainless steel prop on the boat; a friend had it left over when he sold his rig.  It fit perfectly.  Now the 32 year old AL prop is the spare.   who needs a stinking fan to push a boat?

D, another thought!

if you put a bottom between the two cat hulls, but only went down 75% of the depth, that would make it a 'tunnel drive'.  more floatation less drag faster speed with same engine????
