Cool
Twin Outboard X-series Cat

Built the original hull some time ago but after talking to good friend of mine thought is was a good idea to get it back out,modd it and revamp the looks etc
I plan on using 2 x OS legs,Scorpion HK3226 1600 KV outrunners,swordfish 200esc on 6s on each should be pretty quick
But i know a couple of others are being built with twin nitro setup
I plan on using this as a plug once iv done the filling and sanding will just leave the strakes to add on the sponsons just wanna make sure there all good 1st
and need to get another OB aswell

Actually the Lapcat that I bought with 7.5 is only 32" long on the hull. The motor brings it up to about 36" OA.

Well, I don't have it in my hands yet to give an exact measurement. Just going off what the seller said. I would have thought they would be around 34-36 in hull length myself.
My VS1 (spec tunnel) measures 28" on the hull.

This is so cool mate I always love you, bill and scorps builds.

I'm back. Sold my pursuit, never got it coated. Work got the best of me, and my son took all my sparetime
Summer is coming to Denmark, and now I cannot stay away from boating again . In a few months time im gonna buy myself a motley crew and have a blast all summer and hopefully start a new build this summer, a small mono.

Looking forward to seeing the progress on this sweet thing...

what about the 3126's from fightercat? I don 't know how they would compare to the scorps but apparently they have spun 445's before, I have them on 442's.
