2000 Twinvee catamaran

Post by toddinbr on Wed Jul 01, 2015 10:45 pm

So I decided to downsize and sold my 26 twin vee. I enjoyed having a catamaran so much I found a 20 foot for a good price and bought it. It's has a few things I didn't like so it is now time to rebuild.  I am building a leaning post/cooler to replace the icechest seat. Still a little clean up left.
The twin vee has a single tohatsu 115. That pushe the boat at 35 mph at wot. Which is plenty fast enough, but I have never liked a single outboard on a cat. It has strange tendencies to want to walk when on plane.  It performs great at about 29 mph. I think it's because there is more hull in the water.  Cats have always performed better with twins so when I repower I am most likely going that route. Got little time before that decision.

I plan on cleaning and patching a few places on the outside. Then it's time to paint. I'm all over the place on colors, kinda leaning towards sky blue or an orange though. what do you guys think? The paint will be on the sides and also on the console and leaning post. The interior need a little color. I also plan to kiwigrip. the deck as well.

thank you for posting Todd, for paint I would say go with whichever you like, it's your boat! :-)

white colors cover quicker and hide blemishes better. will you be spraying or rolling?

very nice console and cooler, it came out nice

I plan on stay white on the decks, sole and inside gunnels, just thinking the console and the leaning post could stand a little color.

I'll be brushing emc on this boat. I enjoyed the process on my last boat and I think with the experience I gain, I'll do a even better job. Gonna think on the paint color a little longer before I decide.

There is an orange boat on classic mako. The guy's name is tuna. Looks good. I wonder if you can get those darker colors even with roll and tip. The seat looks good.

Thanks, it's the second cooler I built the first was a little over 600 quarts. this one has 228 quarts of ice chest on it. We spearfish a lot and dead fish space is at a premium on a twin vee!
