  • “Thanks for sending that ‘Owl’, Moley...” No arguing with Phil nor Mike on this. Of course the much-later centerboard CATFISH/BEACHCAT of course would follow the only slightly-less ‘much-later’ BOBCAT example of reasonably swift plywood construction, light-ish weight, and perfect trailer-ability... I mean from the local-, to the regional-, to the national Sand-Bagger...

  • David, this is a ‘Catboat’-typical regular centerboard on (indeed !) the centerline. No daggerboard offered on her. One could be thought of, but I’d rather have the board come up by itself when it touches bottom, sailing in the catboat’s typical habitat – shallow coastal waters, estuaries, salt-marsh creeks. Just a bigger BOBCAT. No explicit cuddy-option on the plans...

  • Good morning all. Catfish/Beach Cat Design #589 has been added to with an option to build just such a conventional catboat layout, adding 3 plans-sheets to the original four. The update now offers a centerboard between 6’8” long benches, with lockable locker-volumes ahead and behind for additional safety The under-slung rudder was retained to allow a centerline outboard...

  • Could you elaborate ? - You’d need a design to carry that weight ? - Sail or power ? - What waters ? - Who’d build it ?

  • Folks, Bob Hicks could use your help with a few more subscriptions to add to his roster. Attrition mostly by ‘death-by-old-age’ keeps cutting into his business. ’Fresh blood’ seems called for. Makes for a good gift – birthdays or any other high holidays... MAIB has been the voice of many folks and organizations which the ‘glitzy’ commercial mags would never even look...

  • Certainly a widespread phenomenon, Otter. The ‘Daily Bread’ of a democracy. All the more reason to get and stay involved. Often seemingly to no avail. But push-back does alter things, if not at least pull like-minded folks together to pool resources, including experience with such emerging challenges. And then there are times when things really get moved into a different...
