A classic Herreschoff design, the Catspaw is 12′ 8″ long with a 55″ beam. Built from plans by WoodenBoat, she is designed for sail and oar; carries 65 sq. ft. of sprit sail, has two rowing stations and all brass hardware. The hull is cedar with fiberglass inside and out, two layers on the bottom, all painted Petit white, with blue ablative on the bottom. She has two spars of Douglas fir, both of which fit inside for transport, and a new Dacron sail. The ribs are made of steam bent ash; the transom, rails, centerboard trunk, seats, mast partner, deck and quarter knees are all mahogany. The keel, skeg and centerboard are oak. She is easily sailed, even for beginners, and stands up to a good breeze.
A trailer is included and has all new wiring and lights, and a new tongue jack. The boat and trailer will tow easily, even with small cars. There are videos of Catspaws sailing on youtube.
this is an end of season price, she will be $6500 next spring.
