The birth of an elegant 18' sloop with shoal draft, recounted by Tony Dias:
Arey's Pond Boat Yard is well known for the fine Catboats they produce. Tony Davis and I have wanted to work together for some time, and when this opportunity to build a sloop to fit in their line arose I jumped at the chance. Cape Cod is reknowned for its Cats, but there has also been a long tradition of handy, shoal sloops dating back at least a century. The Kingston Lobster Boat in Chappele's American Small Sailing Craft while Cat Ketch rigged, is pretty close to being an ancestral working prototype.
The 19th Annual Arey's Pond Boat Yard Catboat Gathering:
Thanks to all the participants and Committee Boat Crew for making the 2011 Gathering a success. Mark your calendars for the 20th Annual Event on August 18, 2012. We are hoping to have 120 catboats sailing at one time and an aerial photo to prove it and have it entered in the Guinness Book of World Records. There will be two races, one Friday the other on Saturday. Sunday will be a rain day. If you place in the top three in both races a half model will be made of your boat. Spread the word lets make it the biggest event in our history!
