        Hi everybody,
        I am thinking of building a Fatcat stretched to 16´because the cabin as designed is a little short. Has anybody already thought about that.
        Also changing the gaffrig for a lug with mizzen. I´d be happy to hear your opinions. Or maybe Master Jim could comment on that matter.
        Fair Winds, Wolfgang
