Re: 35' cat for ocean crossing?

Bar raised for sure. Looks like a Leapord though.

Re: 35' cat for ocean crossing?

Is a 35' cat (or so) suitable & possible? Yes, of course.

Thought of this thread yesterday and snapped a pic. Four cats under 40' anchored in a row here in the San Blas.

Bow in foreground: Wildcat 35.

In sequence from bow:

FP Athena 38'

Lagoon 37'

Island Spirit 35'


As I commented earlier, load carrying capacity I think is the biggest constraint for a small cruising cat, but it is demonstrably feasible.
