Re: Cat Ketch

There are about six Mark Ellis designed 40' cat ketches that look very much like giant Nonsuchs except they were built, to a high standard in Taiwan. Very nice lines. We almost bought the only conventional cutter version of the boat.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Thanks to everyone for the input, I'll keep trying.

Once owned a boat is a touchable dream. It can be worked on and endlessly improved, the messin' about tactile foreplay to voyages in the mind.

I'm pretty sure that I saw one of these near Salt Spring Island in July this year. It was really eye catching.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

You know the more I think about it you may have it right. It certainly looked like a big cat ketch nonesuch. I have always liked the Niagaras that he designed.

Re: Cat Ketch

There is a couple of Rodger Martin designed Presto 30's in the Bay.

I have a Herreshoff Cat Ketch with carbon fiber masts and half wishbone booms. It is a 33 foot boat and 1 of 5 made by CKY, although there are dozens of the 31 footers.
