Pedigree Cats in Raymond, Washington (Pedigree Cats Catamarans - power catamaran builder, sail catamaran builder, trimarans, multihulls, custom composite builder in North America, power catamarans, sail catamarans builder) I've seen the boat sitting out in their yard many times over the last 6 or 7 years. She is pretty, but they've had a heckuva time getting it finished. It was for sale 3 or 4 years ago, in an unfinished state.

Looking at an Aereorig equipped cat for sailing in Europe,
Hi Col,

My next cat will have two unstayed masts - currently I favour the WOW Wally Omer Wing on a 42 - 45 cat.

Re: Aerorigs - Pros / Cons / Opinions ?

Here is another aerorig example which just returned here to the PNW last year after a pacific cruise. Her sistership is currently being constructed in Hawaii, also with an aerorig variant.

I believe she's still up for sale in British Columbia: 2003 Kurt Hughes Catamaran Sail Boat For Sale -
