Re: very old wooden sailboat....photo!

Ready:
If you are aasking why there are not more production cat ketches I think the answer is simple, money. The simple, swept spreader sloop rig with one chainplate and one stick is cheap. If youy are looking for a perormance reason I'd say the simple sloop is more versitile, i.e. can carry a variety of upwind and downwind headsails and more close winded.

Bob,
Thanks for the reply. It makes sense it would be cheaper to build, although I would have thought the absence of standing rigging would have offset most of the other costs. I have sailed on one a number of times, and was impressed by the ease of sail handling.

I think perhaps the cost of the rigging is offset by the increased cost of the mast.

With the greatest respect Jobi, I must confess that your regard for this derelict brings to my mind the old adage that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Call me crass but all I see there is firewood for next winter. Go Habs Go!!!

Looks like an Angleman design. I think he was working in the 50s and 60s, his boats have been widely built and sailed.
