Default RE: Airboat gets unstabel when getting over a certen speed

I think the biggest cause of the "bouncing" is the shape of the bow section (rake). It makes a hard transition. The Rake should have a smooth, gradual transition for water to flow freely from bow to stern. Picture a real flat bottom boat.
Try moving your battery more toward the front of the craft...see how that effects performance.

For the catamaran...I have no idea.

Cool lookin' dog, What breed?
