One simple sail and classic looks.
Menger Boat works of Bayshore, New York, produces one of the finest lines of catboats in the country. This is the 19-footer day mini-cruiser. If you have been bogged down in bendy fractional-rigged sloops with bulbed, winged keels and more wires and string to pull than you know what to do with, you just might consider returning to the simple pleasures of catboat sailing. It takes two halyards to get the big gaff main up. There is a peak halyard and a throat halyard. Then you drop the center board and off you go. Then the only line to pull is the mainsheet.
