"Glass house"

Observed this fat cat on San Pablo Bay yesterday. Appeared to be "herding" a flotilla of 200+ sailboats (The Great Vallejo Race).

Re: "Glass house"

You could grow tomatoes in there! Is that about a 50 footer?

Re: "Glass house"

Scaling off the figure, I'd estimate it be be 65 to 70 feet LOA. Its beam seemed nearly as wide as my boat is long. In Mare Island Strait, the catamaran anchored outside of the Vallejo marinas. Seems it's much to big to maneuver in the typical marina.

Re: "Glass house"

I think this may be the same boat?

Re: "Glass house"

Portlights on the side are different as is the shape of the house windows and cockpit roof supports at the aft end.

I think it's under 85' but definitely more than 50.

I'm guessing about 60'.
