Product Description

Here is one of the prettiest dinghy models around. The Catspaw's clean, elegant lines are Joel White's modified version of Herreshoff's Columbia dinghy. This model is combination of the two... as it has lapstrake planking instead of carvel planking as with the full-sized plans. So, with lapstrake planking over steamed frames, this kit provides a first-rate introduction to round-bottom construction techniques for the accomplished modeler.

Plans and materials (including copper roves and nails) to complete the Catspaw are included with this kit, as are step-by-step instructions that also show you how to fashion spars, oars, oarlock sockets and horns, and all hardware. While sail material is not included, the drawings are on the plan.

Scale: 1 1/2" = 1'

LOA: 19"
Beam: 7"

We build a Catspaw years ago, obviously building the kit will not take as much time, because of all the detail it’s going to take a bit of time and dedication to complete.

Great Kit

This is a beautiful product. It's a good kit with all the necessary supplies. The instructions are good but I had hoped that one of the websites that have progressive builds would have more information. That isn't the case so perhaps The WoodenBoat Store could produce a video. That would be beneficial.

Catspaw Model Kit (Wood)

A Challenge!

I am not an experienced model boat builder, but did the WoodenBoat School basics of wooden boat building, part of the course using the construction of the Catspaw dingy. I also spent some time rowing and sailing the school’s Catspaw. That prompted me to get the kit.
It took me a year and was a challenge! Despite the fairly detailed instructions I spent a lot of time figuring out the next step. Just like full sized building.
In the end I learnt a lot, had lots of fun and have a model that I am delighted with and love showing off!
Now for the full sized model.
