Hi. I have owned an Offshore Cat Ketch
"Valhalla II" since 1987. Its been from Terre Verde (Tampa) in Florida
across the Gulf to Houston
and Clear Lake
area in Texas
. Then moved it by truck (not again) up to Annapolis
, MD. Lived on it on the Magothy River for two years and then up to Baltimore
outer Harbor. Now have it in Virginia Beach, VA.
Its pretty rough shape right now as I am repairing the deck
, and the interior
. Spent time reworking fuel
system as well. Modified interior
back when I moved aboard in 1998 time period to allow an offset fore and aft seating and table, and book shelves on the port side replacing the pull out double settee and the center table hung off the mizzen mast
in the cabin
I have the original brochures, and the book that was originally compiled for the charter trade
that never was viable in south Florida
. I am now fixing things that have gotten out of hand due to deferred maintenance
not done in my absence and distractions.
Let me know if you want to chat about the boats. I have done some other mods and will be doing more. I have been considering converting my classic layout to some version of the alternate aft berth version that moves the galley
forward a bit to allow access to the lazerette on the starboard side. This would be convenient as I think about cruising in retirement
in the next few years.
