Pros:
Cons:

A 17-foot traditionally styled catboat with a unique folding mast can go from trailer to sailing in 10 to 15 minutes. Smooth lines, large cockpit and a cabin for two. Great in light air, yet stable and surprisingly fast in a stronger breeze. Perfect for single-handing.

Pros: very easy to sail, modest sail plan, no winches required, very stiff and dry for size
Cons: dark green hull oxidiation requires lots of attention, cream colored deck too.

Perfect day sailor or weekender. Sails beautifully and easily. Sitting headroom in cabin, sleeps two well. Responsive and well built. Hinged mast is a joy...easily the simplest boat to rig in this size class. Can lower/raise mast on water for bridges or covered docks. Hutchins Company (Builders) have been a joy to deal with on the few times I've needed replacement parts, they even built me solid teak hatchboards to replace the standard ply that I didn't care for (delaminating on edges). The only reason I might ever consider leaving this vessel is for the Horizon Cat with an inboard motor, and a tad more space.

Most difficult part about launching is answering all the questions about this salty looking, but very modern, cat rigged sailboat. Points much better than I thought she would, though maybe a couple of degrees less than a sloop with a bigger keel. A fair trade off, for me, for a boat than can sale in 18-24" of water.

The Acid test...would I buy her again? Instantly!
