I came upon this cat while walking a beach near San Carlos, Mexico. It has been widened to 16 feet, and lengthened to 30 feet.I was surprised to see it because I have just launched my own wide beam Stiletto projectin San Francisco.This Mexican boat has boards in hulls, a central motor box, and a 6 " I.D. main beam that slides over the main stub tubes.Very stout and clean set up for dolphin striker.
This picture shows the mechanical set-up -essentially a 'clothesline' with a 12v motor at the center- ( when installed, this motor is protected from the elements). The motor could be, of course an original Autohelm, or even a standard tillerpilot, but in this case the correction would be only 5 or 6 in on each side compared to 2 ft on each side with the set up shown ),but the tiller pilot could be mounted permanently.
