After a nice row on the Guideboat yesterday, what didst I see but a shiny Picnic Cat being towed to the ramp. I did what any self respecting Compac-o-naut would do: followed the dude. As he was preparing to rig the boat, we exchanged introductions. I should say as he rigged the boat which took all of about 2 minutes! I've seen these at the shows but never saw one in action. They are really cool little boats and the mastender is a work of art.
Rich is the name of the skipper and I asked him if he'd heard of this site. He replied he used to be a member but got tired of the constant emails so he dropped his membership. I'm confused about that so I dropped the subject. As I left, he was backing down the ramp with his VW Passat, I think getting ready for a great day on the water. Cool boat! Didn't get the name.
