Having sailed many makes and models plastic cats, I cant say that any of them meet my ideals for a cruising cat, but I really like Wharrams design ideas. Ive sailed a couple of Tikis and have the study plans for a couple of larger Wharrams (like the Pahi
series). A semi-custom traditional looking cat really appeals to me for the next boat.
I like the idea of a cat that not only is seaworthy
, but actually looks salty and "traditional" too...like a real sailing vessel and not a condo with a mast
stuck in it.
