36' Cat 2 Fold Catamaran

A 36' folding catamaran in composite materials.
This 36' folding catamaran design quickly folds into trailering width.  The patented mast raising system and the patented folding system allow very rapid setup.  According to the clock on my camera, the mast raising below took under two minutes and the unfolding took 3 minutes.

We want to see if there is any interest in plans or kits for this design.  In either case, the  connective beams would be built by Cat2Fold.  Let me know.
