Default New Cat

I picked up an older A-cat last month it's an Auscat built and designed by Boyer and Goodall in Australia. www.AHPC.com.au
The Mast is hollow carbon fiber at 30' the hulls are a mix of honey comb, kevlar, carbon and the sail 150 sq ft. has so many carbon strips it looks gray from a distance. The whole boat weighs 165 although it won't fit on my scale thats what it feals like. I can single hand it on and off the water. Starting sailing it Nov. 1st 2008 after 3 weeks restoring a few things.
Here's what they can do with a pro, Glenn is the current world Champ.

Not much on sail (blow) boats, but that looks like a nice one! I would like to try my hand at sailing some day. [8D]
