Sailing in Shallows

There''s a large group of catboats in the Chesepeake Bay area. These are centerboarders with lots of beam, designed for shallow waters. Generally, they draw 2 feet with the board up, 4 feet with the board down. Great boats, and great for beginners. For more info, see my articles here on SailNet; catboat clubs can be found at http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/catboatsailing

and

and the Chesepeake catboat club:

Not that I''m biased! ;-)
