The Sizzler Catamaran, Aluminum Beachcat

"The Sizzler was one of various small cats that appeared in the 1970's and tried to ride the coattails of Hobie Cat's success. The name of the company was Great Lakes Manufacturing Co., located in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. It started in about 1974. The owners of the company were Ed Vlack and Art Bates. Bates was the one who ran the company. The designer of the Sizzler was Paul Swenson, an engineer who had built catamarans of his own in the past."
