• OpenCat 'Prototype 0' hull

This is the hull used on the OpenCat 'prototype 0'.

It is a 4.80 m (WL) hull especially designed for a light catamaran human powered boat. Design displacement is 50 l per hull. Its shape is the same as that of 'Talassociclo', the boat that won the Human Powered World Championship 1999, long distance race, singles.

It conforms to the 'forward tube' architecture proposed for the Open Waterbike.

The hull is available from Lamar Udine.

You can freely download the dwg file here with all dimensions if you want to use this shape.

(Opinions always welcome)

 

Our boat is better than mine.
