So a 12ft cat would be more like the col_cat pic but Rocat shows the sort of sea conditions that a cat will take. However now I think I'd like to add a Reclining seat back to my rowing seat for those times when I'd like to rear back and rest.
But those little Aluminum semi-V's are much worse for an old fart because they fill with water so easily, even if they dont flip. Looking at shortening it to 10 ft, raising the bow curve for better shore ramming and maybe some other stuff. If I had a little guy sitting up front, your angle would keep his weight from steering the boat. If I could draw, or use your CAD program, I'd show you what the seating arrangment I think I'd like. This works great, and when I get another boat this is what I want to do for the rowing seat.

The length was supposed to be 12 feet but will end up 11.8 feet because of the 2 inch scarf joint overlap.

Today I was checking the scarf joint that I glued up and the 16 foot long board was so floppy I was afraid the scarf joint was going to break so I added a block to the inside of the panel.
