Little Wing - Catspaw 8 build and stuff

Recommended Posts

After losing my Spindrift 11N I tried to go the inflatable route to use as a dinghy. Unfortunately my $2000 takacat had a half dozen leaks in less than 5 months. It also didn't sail or row worth a damn so I decided to build another B&B boat to use as a tender.

 

One of the first lines in the build instructions is not to rush. So since it took 11 months to build my Spindrift I gave myself a month to build the Catspaw.  I started building in late July and called it good enough for now in early September. So about 6 weeks in all. 

 

I'm still trying to source a mast and sail before I leave the country for a couple years.

 

Here are some photos of the build and I'll update the thread as I continue to work and modify the boat.
