Default R/C Catamaran Hull

I'm looking to build a Catamaran that is about 4-5 feet long and 1-1.5 feet wide. What I need is a picture or something with the same of the hull and what it should look like. I have built a deep vee but getting the bottom of the hull on this is looking to be a bigger challenge. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hmmm, At first I though you were talking about sailboats.
But then you mention Miss Budweiser, which I don't believe they run an offshore Catamaran, just a hydroplane.

Offshore catamarans don't exactly have a "V" hull either, so it still leaves me a bit confused.

Maybe this images will help you.

I am sure when you get a chance to post some pics of your boat, it will clear up my muddled brain.[&:]

Sorry about the vee thing the pictures u posted were right the one that I saw was custom built and the pic was at a bad angle. Also my boat is gas powered string trimmer motor. Thanks for the pics no pics of mine yet b/c I haven't built it yet.

Check these 2 sites out, they both have great hulls pre built and proven. All hardware must be installed or built so its no easy task and no where near a RTR.

[link]http://www.swissmodelpowerboatteam.ch/[/link] this site has a cat thats 2.26 meters, i think thats like around 6-7 feet range.
