This is a Withhold design Chesapeake Bay Cat Boat. I have had the sailboat 40 years and restored it twice. It's now ready for it's third restoration but I don't have the time. She is mahogany or pine on oak frames with a fairly new main older jib sail, barn door rudder, motor and two bilge pumps. She sleeps two on original mattresses and inclyudes a porta potty. I have taken it two trips down the Mississippi to Hannibal, Mo as well as sailing locally. I have been cruising in our bigger sailboat for 20 years for five months each year and just can't find room to restore the gaff rigged Cat.
