Hi All... Have been rebuilding a 1968.. 23ft PowerCat for the past 16 months. Bought it two years ago and have never had it in the water. It is fiberglass catamiran hull that was made in Texas. Powered with factory Mercruiser 160 straight 6 cyl in/out drive. At this point about one more week to get wet. I plan to put pontoon style seats in it instead of the back to back originals. Will call PontoonStuff tomorrow for availability on them. Would like to christen it on the 4th of July. Will get photos posted later. Happy sailing! Rich

He mentioned that he has the Merc 160 straight six in it.  Same engine that we had in our late 60's vintage Mark Twain.

It's a ^%$#@& truck engine.  Throw grenades at it and it just giggles....   LOL
