Nothing will make me stop and acknowledge its existence faster than a Catboat. Nothing. Ask my wife.

Now a Catboat in Wickford Cove, well that doesn't stop me any faster. Although, I take a more nostalgic notice.

This is nothing less of a classic. It's fiberglass, yes. It has a yachting style dodger. But the coloring, design, sail configuration, and wood trim still make one take notice.

With this Catboat, I have more memories. Yes, I did sail cats in and out of Wickford (even participating in a few races). I also remember this boat's Dartmouth, Massachusetts designer, and builder.

It's a Catboat in Wickford Cove on a calm and hazy summer evening. That means that there is something right in a turbulent world.
