Why not motor out and try other water activities....snorkeling, fishing, swim off your favorite deserted island. Perhaps you have a catamaran that can only be launched in an area that prerequisites a motor by the dockmaster. Or you live near a lake where beautiful sailing is favorable except when returning home when the winds drop to nothing daily. The Cheata Motor Bracket and your favorite type of motor provide safe sure momentum against winds and currents. Makes docking easy. Propels to speeds in excess of 8 knots. Motor is completely clear of tiller and rudders. All controls of motor and lift mechanism are easily accessible.
NEVER IN THE WAY OF FUN...
Sail all day and never know it is there. Motor and Bracket can weigh as little as 17 pounds and have no affect on the trim of your catamaran. Tiller can easily be transferred through a 6 inch space between boom and top of motor from tack to tack. With a simple acrylic canvas cover, your motor will stay completely dry from water spray.
LIGHT WEIGHT, SAFE, SECURE and DRY
If your catamaran should turn on its side your motor will not be submerged, and as long as you and your crew jump from the high side, your cat will not turn-turtle. With most modern motors having solid state ignition, even if you should turn-turtle, your motor can easily be cleaned and restarted with very little trouble, provided you attend to your motor that sailing day. The Cheata Motor Bracket carries a full one year warranty.
THE QUALITY IS IN THE CONSTRUCTION...
The cast aluminum bracket is composed of the highest quality alloys which are molded and machined to your specific catamaran. Using the Amalg-35 for the casting and 6061 aviation aluminum on the motor arm, the bracket is free from corrosion. The Cheata Motor Bracket has been tested to stress limits of over 225 pounds, so there is no fear of using a 25-30 pound motor or pulling down on the motor arm while swimming. Please preview this short video on the construction process:
