Merc Kat
from Sports Illistrated
MERCURY CATAMARAN
Perhaps the most exciting and significant of the new designs is the Mercury catamaran, conceived by Carl Kiekhaefer, head of the company that makes Mercury outboard motors. "For years we've been testing boats and offering our ideas to the builders," said Kiekhaefer, whose company maintains a permanent testing ground in Sarasota, Fla., where any boatbuilder can have his new models wrung out by Mercury's test drivers. The more he saw conventional hulls pounding along past his testing area, the more certain Kiekhaefer became that catamarans might be the answer. And when a group of catamaran runabouts (see page 35) virtually swept the rugged Mississippi marathon, Kiekhaefer was convinced. He went to a catamaran expert named Warren Gale, who has built some 3,000 cats in the past nine years, and outlined his ideas for a family-size outboard cat with comfortable cruising accommodations and a sporty, open steering cockpit up forward. Gale and his engineers went to work and developed the finished product. The cat is 26 feet 8 inches long and has a generous 9-foot beam. Her main feature, of course, is the twin-hull design, which presents sharp, narrow forward sections that can slice through the swells rather than banging into them like the broad underside of a conventional hull planing at high speed. Rushed to completion for its debut at the New York show, the cat has not yet been given any serious testing under rough water conditions, but both Gale and Kiekhaefer are confident she will give a smooth ride even at her designed top speed of 30 mph.
