JP. Posted November 15, 2022 Report Share Posted November 15, 2022 Hi all, I am hoping to get some advice on a first cat to buy. I have been looking online mostly at Caper Cats, Maricats, and Calypsos. I haven’t got a heap of sailing experience, and my only cat experience is with non-turbo Hobie 14s - so I thought a Calypso 16 and definitely a H16 would be too much to handle. I have no intention of racing, it would mostly be used for lake sailing at Lake Cootharaba or Wivenhoe dam in Queensland. I think I'm most attracted to a Caper Cat but had a couple of questions I couldn't find online. How do they compare to the Maricat and Calypso 16? How much weight / how many people can you get on a Caper Cat? From what I’ve read it seems to be possible to load them up more than a Maricat? It would be good to be able to go out with a couple of mates. How do they compare in terms of ease to sail single-handed? Is it easy to get the mast up and rig by yourself? Thanks in advance, Jim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
