 cat schooner rigged with folding masts, a single 40 HP outboard in a well

The traditional Queen Charlotte Islands version of a Macgregor 26 motorsailer.

Our version is cat schooner rigged with folding masts, a single 40 HP outboard in a well, and lapstrake plywood construction. She is designed to be seaworthy, with reasonable speed (10+ knots cruising speed) to buck currents, and the ability to sail with twin centerboards mounted outboard under the side decks.

Accommodations include a built-in double berth which makes up into a sitting and eating area during the usual day trips. A small galley, two inside helm seats, and a head are included. Heat will be provided with a Navigator Sardine woodstove. Expanded accommodations are available under a boom tent in the large cockpit.
