We need to stay in touch!
Yes, absolutely. At this point, I am thinking that a cat boat might be a good solution for Pickwick. Shallow draft, wide beam, simple rig, decent cabin, large enough for a motor, and can be trailered. I don't think there's a cat boat on Pickwick yet. At least, I haven't seen one at the marinas. Marshall Sanderlins look good to me. I have a friend in Miami that has one and I hope to get down there in Sept to get out on it and see what it's like.
