      Hi all, I ran across some pictures in the attic that I hadn't been able
      to find. They are pictures of my aluminum Bolger Cat yawl, Wolftrap,
      under construction. I placed them in my album entitled Wolftrap in
      the Bolger cartoon group. If you have an interest in metal boats go
      take a look. I still have a lot of comments to put below the pictures.
      At the present time I am to busy with the Tea Party to do
      it.

        ... That was a good rig and unbelievably fast. We decided to go to the Bahamas and South and felt that the main with 500 sq. feet in it was just to big. I

          That was a good rig and unbelievably fast.  We decided to go to the Bahamas and South and felt that the main with 500 sq. feet in it was just to big.  I have siled schooner some and thought it would be fun to covert her and we did. WE kept the Cat yawl l rig and put a schooner rig on her for smaller sails and shorter masts.  We lengthened the bow sprite and put a boomkin on her to lengthen the rig to keep the same square footage in the rig and to balance around the same center of resistance and effort.  She sailed good but was slower than Bolgers rig by a lot. We lived aboard and sailed the Caribbean for severl years. A great boat.              Doug
