It would be nice to have some news, if I have understood the things there should be at least 12 cats under construction all around the world.
My two F12 cats are waiting for the next season and I will eventually do some small fine tuning on them. They are already the fastest 12 feet cats on the market and I donít think there are so many 14 feet carrying just a main that will be faster. smile

Although probably not in your 12 boat list, I'm still interested and waiting for some details before the start.

Gato, 3 Aussie builds (including Jeff's) are being held up by me trusting the wrong supplier. I'm picking up the partially completeed kits on Monday or Tuesday to take them to an alternate cutter to hopefully have them finished (the kits not the boats) by the end of next week. Because of the delay Jeff is only going to build one so I'm now going to be building an F12 also which I'll tow around some local clubs to try and drum up some interest.

I'm trusting my left hand to do the cutting grin

you haven't met my left hand, he's a pretty dodgy character.

Unfortunately in an effort to launch a pre scarfed kit, the guy Scarecrow trusted to cut it turned out to be a total tosser (no fault of Scarecrow), so we've been held up and my older daughter with her crew are now over the weight for an F12 and are now happily sailing a 14ft Arrow. With some luck we'll get sorted in time to have one F12 with jib ready in time for me to piggyback to Sauna Sail.

Well, I have been doing the first ice boat sailing today but in some 4 months I will be waterborn again.

Jeff,

I'll try and get mine done for Sauna also, that way we can hit the regatta with a splash.

Probably a bit pricy for a regional 2 day regatta

The same goes for the Tabby if Ncik can not get somebody to build one a little bit closer.
So it seems I have to build a third cat if we want to have them all three in the same race

Having a few of them at Sauna sail would be great exposure for them as theres a pile of adult sailors and hardly any juniors, I believe because of the inconvenience of towing multiple boats. If we turn up with them piggybacked and they are easy to rig we may be able to onsell the ones we've made and make some more before summer. I already have 2 people sailing Hobies that I have promised to show the F12. Scarecrow if you don't have a skipper for yours I will be able to provide one.

Jeff,

we'll talk closer to the time, I'm not sure if I'll need a skipper or not.

That was already some news. Still it would be really intereating to here something from
AUS 011 - Vudu 3.8 HC
SIN 012 - Vudu 3.8 RB
GBR 013 - Vudu 3.8 RB
CHN 088 - Vudu 3.8 RB

The only completed boats that I'm aware of are Gato's and he's no spring chicken. He's been making the boats available to local kids to try. I get a couple of emails a week from kids who want info to show their parents to ask for a boat with a big surge leading into christmas.

The kids are not the problem, they want the cat, but there are two obstacles; the parents and the fact that you have to build the boat yourself.

Why am I not surprised at this outcome ?

But the best quote is by Jeff :" ... so we've been held up and my older daughter with her crew are now over the weight for an F12 ..."

Seems you guys have some fundamental design flaws in the boats and class.

Nope, it's just the catsailors not so much their kids that have a problem. I still hope to have a fleet of F12 cats here for the next season

They have never sailed a cat before and their dad has never sailed anything, still it was hard to get them of.
