Re: ketch sailing without mizzen–sail?

I usually sail main only due to the difficulty in getting both sails down in 10 Knot winds without someone to keep the boat pointed into the wind. Raven is not as balanced with main o...

Re: 28 Cat Ketch wheel size

The former owner of my freedom 28 had converted to a smaller wheel. I have sailed in 35 knot winds and have not had trouble controlling the boat. The next time I visit the boat I will measure the wheel size on Raven.

Re: WTB Cat Ketch 28 or 33 starting Jan 2018

Hi John, I am selling Raven my 1980 F28 CK CB shoal draft. I spent 2.5 years restoring her between 2010 and 2012. She has been in the water on Narragansett Bay, RI since.

Re: F30 Cat/Ketch Reefing Diagram Needed

I was puzzled by the Freedom drawing (scan 0001). The boom remains at the height and angle you set when sail area at 100% (left diagram). The mast end of the boom does not lower as shown in the right diagram. Good luck with your setup.
Be well.

Re: F30 Cat/Ketch Reefing Diagram Needed

I installed single line reefing on SV Raven, F28CK with WB booms per the attached diagram. My sail has a pair SS rings on straps to attach the sail block (you could attach to the boom lash). It works just fine.
