Planing a Cat

Al I love gaff rigged cat boats but I have never got one up on plain or seen one plain. Not saying it can't be done, but I never have and I am older than dirt.

Sail Plan

Mark If you deside on the cat rig, a gaff rigged sail you can scandalize (Drop the peak and dump air out the top). But what would I know? I have a gaff riggeg boat with a jib and still manage to T-Bone the dock sometimes. This is the beauty of building your own boat. You get to make the call and if ...
