15' Cold Molded Catboat--MARSH CAT DIGITAL
- Additional Info
Her 6'11" beam makes for a big 15-footer. Cold-molded (four 1/8" layers of mahogany), lightweight and trailerable. Page 6 has the full-sized mold plans... and the trick with this in digital is to have that page printed so the item with the measurement on it, actually prints to that size. You'll see the breasthook area with a 3" dimension.
