Catspaw Dinghy

Inspired by the L.F. Herreshoff "Columbia Dinghy" this Joel White designed 12' 9" "Cats Paw Dinghy" is made from white oak, white cedar, and Honduras mahogany, fastened with over 1,000 copper rivets, and bronze screws. It rows easily, even with a load of gear aboard, and sails like a dream in most conditions. Steam bent frames (ribs), carvel planking with traditional cotton caulking, and careful attention to joinery create a strong little boat that with a little care, will last a long, long time. Custom built to your specifications.

Dimensions: 12' 9"
