Little catboat

I have this old Dutch book with lots of older style sail boats in it, this one caught my eye years ago to build full size. It never eventuated but I think I might build it 1/4 scale, about 1100 long 50 wide.

Cat Boats are really neat and fun to sail. The first time I was ever in a sail boat was in a cat boat. One person can easily sail her and they move out very well with the one big sail. No room for a jib sail though.

That should make a nice simple rig.

I was always a fan of Garry Hoyt & his Freedom Yachts unstayed mast cat ketches. The ultimate in following the KISS principle.

All my projects are at a stand still for the moment, I'm moving my workshop out of the house and into the new workshop. SWMBO needs the room I'm in now for our third , Due in March so will be back to it soon.
