- Apr 30, 2007Not felines, or catboats, but catamarans...
Anyone have any thoughts on any small plywood catamaran designs,
probably not Bolger? There are a lot of them out there, but most are
more for a couple of athletic folks who don't mind getting wet, not a
family with small kids.
There are the Jarcats (very ugly) and a few others, including Jeff
Gilbert's Hot Chili (even uglier, sorry, I know some folks like that
one) and Thomas Firth Jones's Weekender (a possibility, but still too
I am really looking around for something like my Junebugamaran or
Crabskiffamaran concepts, where folks would ride in the hulls, not on
the bridge deck, most of the time. The wide stance of a cat would be
nice with a low sailplan and enough room for everyone. I keep coming
back to the idea of a pair of those hulls, or maybe Pirate Racer
hulls (which already have side decks) with a couple of light cabin
trunks and modest rig.
