Being a Nonsuch (Cat rig boat) owner...people always say catamaran? But where's the rig...I do like the interior.
Kinda looks like my unlived in boat right now. I like the cat dingy...and huge too.
Keep the photo's coming.

First trip away, Coongul Creek, Fraser island. Great place for cats. Exploit your shallow draught, and drying out capabilities.

Entrance looks narrow, but is wide enough. Enter at high tide, obviously.


Following "School's Out"

Tide going out, but still she's afloat...

....gone


Bob Oram joined us in his power podcat.

Good fishing, you can pump yabbies for bait right next to the boat, stroll down the beach to the mouth of the creek and pretty much keep yourself fed on whiting, bream and flathead.

Nice galley,
but fairly intrusive set of steps up to I take it the queenies in the front?

I have been trying to nut out some way of getting around this on mine, haven't figured it out yet.

It is a good spot, lets hope you show some Woothoomba creek pics as well

Smaller Whiting fillets dusted in curry powder and flour and overcooked are a nice nibbly with some beers, like a fish chip.

Getting past the steps is still very easy, and it's a very low traffic area anyway. The alternative was to make the steps much steeper, and in reality I expect more traffic will be going up and down the steps than past them.

In the port hull, the opposite is the case, and the steps are steeper, leaving the walkway wider.

What a beautiful boat that can go anywhere...Mine needs 5' of water so the slip is a jail. Just new to my boat and will see my second season with my Nonsuch...cat boat that you have probably not seen there yet. I hope to see pics of your rig. Will have a buncha stuff I don't have as a Nonsuch is a freestanding mast. My choice from childhood sailing OK dingys and Lasers...and Windsurfers.
go finger.
Later
