The Picnic Cat is from the drawing board of Clark Mills, designer of our former 16 CB and our 23/3, and well known also as the designer of the Optimist Pram and the Windmill One Design.
Unlike her sister Com-Pacs the Picnic Cat has a centerboard rather than a keel.
With her centerboard up she is beachable. Her broad hull form and the low center-of-effort of her gaff-rigged sail make her very stable. And her huge self-bailing cockpit and ample stowage offer unsurpassed comfort in a small, easily handled package.
Shes built of solid, hand-laid glass, with aluminum spars and stainless centerboard. In addition, the exclusive Mastendr mast raising system revolutionizes the trailer-boating experience.
You can raise and lower the mast in minutes with minimal effort .
My boat, if you can believe it, was won on the TV show “The Price Is Right”. Since that time it has only been in the water 6 times, 5 in fresh and once in salt. Between these limited outings (no time, not really a sailor and not near water and just hit 77!) it has always been kept in a covered environment and is basically still new.
If you are looking for one of these boats it can be yours for a substantial discount from new.
The boat is located in So. California but if you wanted it located in your area I would be willing to split the moving cost.
All parts and equipment is there as well as some extras
