Glad to see you obtained the info. As to the Catalac
, Yes .. very strange indeed. If there ever is a 'next time' , I promise to verify before posting
The HT26 is a very well regarded boat
and a few have circumnavigated. The outboard
setup is sweet, but it does take away from their center cockpit
. It's a nice size boat for single
handing or a couple.
A cockpit Bimini
poses a challenge. My friend has his custom made with slots for the rigging
to come through.
On the boat you're looking at, pay attention to the forestay attachment points. On my friend's boat, he attempted to tighten the double forestay for better windward performance and bent the bits of metal mounted on each hull
which terminate the stays. It's an area he says needs improvement.
