197? Pacific Cat 18

  • Built around 1970, I found this Pacific Cat 18 in the back of the yard at the Sailboat Shop in Austin. Last registered in Hawaii, wonder how it made it to Austin.
  • One of the fastest sailboats around when it was built, it has some advantages over the Hobies. Fiberglass cockpit has a place to put your feet, storage in the rear of the pontoons and cubby holes at the front of the cockpit, and it looks very stiff. Centerboards in both pontoons.
