"Have you actually had one?"


Back in the 60's I had a 45ft cold molded Hedly Nichol Voyager try built in then British Honduras , now Belize

Cats for coastal , trys for offshore was the rule then , as the ride is so much better ,

Did a couple of years sailing summers to New England and winters in St Thomas , via Bermuda.

Only rides on motor boat cats has been in sheltered waters , but behind St Barts I helped a number turn and anchor cats into the swells as beam too it was difficult to hang on with both hands. Most were 45 -60 ft .

As I find myself saying to the occasional fearful visitors who panic when there's a tiny bit of boat movement:

If a boat didn't roll, it would be a caravan. Or a motorhome.
