BOBCAT 8
Complete easy to read instructions are included. Any outboard motor from 5 to 15 H.P. can be used. (25 MPH with a 5 H.P., 35 to 40 MPH with a 15 H.P.). This is a good first boat project.

The Bobcat has been designed to be an inexpensive but fast rugged little hydroplane. The Bobcat is an ideal boat to race around the bay and will run circles around the so called speed boats on your small local lakes. This boat can't be beat for its size. Only a few simple tools are needed.
