Hi All -
I've been following this square hull cat thread and guess if Peter saw
the cat in MAIB it must have been a while ago I've missed it . Tom Jones
mentions it in his "Multihull Voyaging" but no picture. There IS a book
on Multihulls by Derek Harvey , a Brit, if you can come up with it in a
used book store (sorry, mine is among the missing) and he shows
Bolgers drawing. Does anyone know a way around Yahoo's not
allowing attachments on our emails - if I come up with my copy of Harvey's
book i'd scan the drawing and post it.
