Looking for specs for a Herreshoff America Catboat
« on: August 26, 2016, 05:07:32 PM »
I recently purchased hull #54 Nowak and Williams America catboat, and the previous owner/owners have buggered this little boat up a bit.  When the mast tabernacle was added they moved the goose neck almost to deck level and did away with any track it may have had.  This makes coming about difficult and gibes almost suicidal , as the boom sweeps the cabin top at neck level!  They also added side stays, I guess they didnt trust the strength of the tabernacle.  I plan to rebuild this with a mast sleave/ hinge with a  goose neck mounted on the back.. I could use som photos or measurements of original goose neck setup ...Height off deck. Any help would be great. Thanks Jamie
