    Slip Sized Catamarans

    Cat2Fold was a very unique one off 36' folding catamaran. It will fit in a slip (I think) and is trailerable. It was for sale in Mexico with the trailer at $75,000 which is cheaper than most Gems...

    30-40 feet Cat for weekends in the archipelago?

    Yep Zonk it fails those categories you listed but the Lagoon 380 does fit the comfy category for the wife and small kids and the price range of the OP. So, is there standing headroom under the boom with bimini of a TRT?

    Is there standing headroom under the boom on a TRT?  I see some with biminis so I was wondering about that. It doesn't fit all of your criteria but a Lagoon 380 is worth looking at, especially an owners version. Your wife would love it.

    Off market 45ish cat for sale?

    My Crowther tri was cold molded with West epoxy. I got a real nasty gash to the core from a windstorm while at the dock. 5 months later I hauled it out and the wetness had barely expanded and this was in one of the wettest winters in the PNW. It was double diagonal planked with cedar. I don't...

    California shutters

    The OP said it was for interior shutters so everyone can relax. Any wood will do for those.

    California shutters

    I'm a retired contractor. I doubt aspen because it doesn't do well in the elements. We are talking exterior shutters, right?  Shutters are typically cedar or pine btw. Sugar pine used to be real popular as an exterior wood and it's more of a whitish blond color.  But it's really hard to beat...

    Mumby 48

    The French also built the Yapluka alu cats. I think Garcia is doing one now.

    Extending an Outremer 49?

    There was a french group doing bow modifications to the Outremers about 10 years ago. They built a mold for the project.  I believe the mods costs around $10,000.

    Extending an Outremer 49?

    I love it Zonker. I think that Outie 40 might be worth some sweat equity if it was convenient. And cheaper.

    Extending an Outremer 49?

    Here's the vid of the modifications to a Woods Gypsy 28. They cut the boat in half and added 5' to the middle. But before that they added 4' to the sterns. So it is now 37'. http://www.time-for-a-catamaran-adventure.com/light-wave-woods-32-37-sailing-catamaran/

    Extending an Outremer 49?

    A guy did saw his boat in half and added a few feet to the middle. Maybe a Wood's design and possibly done in Canada. Obviously not for the faint of heart. I think it's on utoob. Did the O49 hobbyhorse?

    PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR RAINMAKER'S CREW

    Dammit, and I knew the 60' was the Chinese one. There is a little more than zero resemblance on the 2 55s. The HH has a big sliding door where the GB was more open air. Take that door out and there you are. The longeron is similar but that's an M&M thing. For a company with an alleged no...

    GB has parted ways with the Chinese yard that built the 66. Now HH has a 55. Look familiar? http://www.tradeonlytoday.com/2015/09/gunboat-international-sues-chinese-boatyard/

    PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR RAINMAKER'S CREW

    All the winches were originally mounted on the center console/helm. I think they are still there. The hatches were likely removed by wave action.
