Is this for sailboats - or power boats? Will have some issues with keel/bulb and mast/sail if sailboats! Wrong forum topic perhaps?

Snake,
We have a catamaran type barge that was built primarily to set marks. Recently it has been fitted with short fold down booms to hook a shroud on a wayward sailboat and bring it home. Easier said than done so far, but i think it is a learned technique and will prove useful . So good luck.

You need to look at this option. Much functional (look at the 2:30 mark):

No idea why it posted here, thought it was in Dock talk.

Added some cross bracing and gave it an undercoat and a white base coat.
