Looking to identify a 31' Catboat
« on: November 05, 2019, 11:56:36 PM »
We have recently rescued a 31'cat and want to find out info about its lineage. Not sure if it is a Herreshoff but it is a Catboat. Started a website with pics at www.catboat1913.com
Many thanks on any feedback
Patty.

Hi Patty,

Welcome to the Herreshoff Registry Forum.

I checked the Herreshoff production record for 1913 this morning and confirmed no catboat built that year. 

There is often a builder's plate or carving to look for. 

Look familiar, anyone?

Charles

Thanks Charles,
I hope someone recognizes the boat. We are planning to attend the Catboat Annual Meeting in Mystic Connecticut to do some networking. If you or anyone else knows someone who may have some background, please get in touch.
Thanks again.
Patty

Are there other pic's? I remember seeing a familiar cat for sale once 10+ years ago maybe - Member of the CBA I believe....

Adam,
There are more photos of the boat here: https://catboat1913.com/initial-work-11%2F19.

Also, Since The suggestion from Charles I have 2 new bits of information:

1. The builder # is N1115672. The number on the jib is 10586.

2. From the US Coast Guard National Vessel Documentation Center. We know the New York Registration (NY2968AT) was filed 6/18/01 by Norman Daunt (who is since deceased). The Title is surprisingly brief. only an official # of 1115672 and a hull ID# of 210889 are listed.

Thanks for the response. If you have any suggestions, I thank you in advance.
