Re: Hitchhiker cats

Simple flat panel ply, not a bad old boat, John Hitch was quite a good designer. Certainly volume over performance, but they won't embarrass you either. You will likely pay between 60k and 90K and have a lot of fun for the money

The key will be getting a good multihull surveyor to assess hull quality.
