Boardless Cats/Dingies??


Recommended Posts

G'day All,

Our club is in desperate straights with low water levels in our lake and a continued future of the same.

So in looking to the future we now need to change our fleet of boats over to boardless types.

Well I know that Mari's, Windies, Nacra 4.5's meet this criteria but are their any other cats out there that are boardless? What about mono's. Any dingies with skeggs?

And what about rudders? I've seen in photo's flat squarish jobs on hire boats. How do they go? What happens when you rake your mast back with them etc/

I sailed in a place called Carnarvon as a teen and all of the catamarans sailed had a pivoting centre board, such as the Tathra,Arrow/Arafura. The rudders were the disc type which were like the early windrush except not as rounded at the front or back. The Arrows and Arafuras coped well with these rudders and when you hit a bank or shallow water the centre board would kick up. The boats all sailed really well with the centreboard rather than dagger boards as well. I am sure most of the existing cats would sail well with the disc type rudders. NickS
