It depends on the cat. I've done it with a Hobie 14, in a fairly calm lake. I think a Hobie 16 would be impossible to right from a turtled position by one person.

I have considered sticking pool noodles into the mast of my current sailing dinghy (not a cat), to prevent turtling. Of course, you have to have a mast in which they'll fit, and not have any internal halyards, if you want to do that.
