There are tons of remote controlled cars and boats out there that you can buy or build, and you can add remote control functionality to almost anything. For more details on how it works, head over to the project page over on Starting Electronics. Because I wanted an inexpensive platform for experimenting with rigs and horizontal foils, I drew a little cat that I hope will be light enough to cartop, and simple enough for an inexperienced builder to knock out in a couple months of part-time work. The dory-like hulls resemble those in Slider, my 16 foot beach cruiser, because Slider goes to windward fairly well without her deep daggerboard.
The Pixie: No daggers or centerboards which is an advantage in the shallow waters of the Carolina coast. After years of designing and building screaming fast outboard race boats I'm back to raggers.
The whole concept has great merit as it allows someone to build this unit quickly and not be so hard on the pocket.
Splinterman-- the hulls would be prettier and faster if the chines were rounded by strip-planking, but I'm thinking that they wouldn't be as weatherly. One question that does come to my mind is how much work will it be to set up and take down? I'm drawing a new up one right now for my own use up at the lake - a Wharram-ish v-hulled double ended beachcat, 15.5' thereabouts, with drink coolers in the hulls and a soft-footed rig for my head. Either gonna call it the 'Door Skinner' or the 'Rocking Horse' depending on how much it pitches or how cheap of materials I use.


Just eyeballing your pics I'm guessing your fine looking cat will carry a decent load of cargo.
Rather than deadeyes, Slider just uses a bow shackle on the chainplate and a thimble on the wire.

Going one step further and building the hulls using the strip planking method could make a really smooth looking finished hull.
Even with a canoe, I find that the time it takes to untie the canoe, carry it down to the water, and then carry the gear down to the water is not inconsequential.

Add to that a bunch of additional parts that have to be put together and the time starts to add up and with it the chances of getting out on the water frequently go down. If the hulls come out on the light side (few lbs less than 40) I'm thinking of adding a layer of 4 oz cloth on the outside just for scrape it over the beach and cartop rails ding proofing.
