The Adventures of Kathleen Presented by Tim Fallon
In the golden age of the catboat spanning from 1875 thru the early 1900's, Charles C. Hanley was busy producing the fastest racing catboats of all time. A rule-of-thumb designer and builder, he was quite the opposite of his contemporary Nat Herreshoff yet succeeded in building a line of fast catboats and centerboard sloops that were sought after by the day's wealthiest yachtsmen.
Today there are but few pictures and stories of Hanley Cats and no one had any first-hand knowledge of these celebrated boats until in 2006, the Beetle Boat shop launched an extremely accurate rendition of a 28' CC Hanley designed catboat. This is the story of KATHLEEN and her adventures and the results of an experiment to re-create one of the fastest racing catboats of all time.
