A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.
Boat Building Academy students Mike Tyler, Jon Bicknell and Andy Blundy built this strip-built South Bay-style catboat to a design worked up by the students with the help of instructor Mike Broome.
Mike Tyler is now at Pangbourne, Reading, and involved in setting up the new Beale Park Maritime Museum. Jon comes from a background in information technology design and Jon worked predominantly with Mike on Lucie – although did spend an hour here and there on other builds. Having finished the course is now busy finding his feet in the boat building industry.
I am part of a team of volunteers at the Long Island Marine Museum where a full size Gil Smith Catboat was newly built several years ago.

We don’t see a lot of Catboats but I reckon they suit our sailing grounds remarkably well.
