Buy a boat, cut it up, toss it out, repeat... I'm not sure Dan's the Man! Dig up his back yard! Call the CAT Police! He is up to no good ya hear me!

Next thing you know he'll say they were no good anymore. I think we need an outreach program for Dan and his wayward cats!

Somebody handle this, I'm busy at the momment grin

Dan, I think Clayton figured you out.

OK, Ok, MAYBE I have reduced some of the numbers of cats out there, but they gave their lives so others can live!

Whenever I cut up a Hobie or Prindle, I kept about 8 inches of the bows. We made really cool trophies out of those for one of our races.

I have donated probably 15 boats and a TON of parts to various sailing camps and the Boy Scouts.

Probably 20 sets of hulls have gone on to be lake pontoon boats or some kind of Franken-trimaran project.

I have recycled 3600 pounds of broken masts, beams and steering systems.

Cat sailing was HUGE areound here 20 years ago, then people just let them sit and rot in their back yards or on the beach. I started collecting broken boats and parting them out to support my sailing habit.

It has also allowed me to try out a lot of different boats. Now, I'm down to my SC15 and my A cat. I have a 14 Turbo that I'm selling and a Nacra 5.2 project that I'm refurbing for someone.

It really is a hobby to me because I enjoy breaking down and putting together boats. I am an IT person, so I don't produce anything physical. When I work on boats, though, I get the satisfaction of an end physical product.

The Albin is an amazing, well-designed full-keel blue water boat. You can take it out in nearly any condition and survive.

Drawbacks: Max speed of 6 knots, but only when the wind speed is 30+

Came equipped with a Volvo 2 cylinder gas engine with side-draft carb and variable pitch prop. When the boat healed to starboard the float would get stuck, dumping gas into the bilge. Every time I fired the engine it was fingers crossed the fucker wouldn’t explode.
