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.

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.

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.

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.
