  1. Selling a Maricat 4.3 Mk1 with Mk2 rear beam. Has new rudders and tramp, new stays and all new ropes. Comes with registered trailer. I renovated the boat last summer, but am moving interstate. The pictures with the sails are the old stays as the new stays are longer for a raked mast. Also includes several parts including a 2nd mast, spare boom, spare rudders. Also includes jib, so can be set up in both cat and sloop configurations. If interested PM me or leave a comment below.

  8. Thank you for the advice Knobbloldjimbo!
  9. Hello, I have a maricat that has a soft spot on top of one of the decks, about 30cm round and about 30cm in front of the front beam. The rest of the hulls/ decks seem fine. I am wanting to know if anyone has repaired something like this before without putting in an inspection port. It is not the gelcoat lifting, but rather a 'spongy' fibreglass feel. Pointed Reply thought that it may have suffered from something landing on it (mast or tree branch etc). I am now working out if it is worth repairing...

    Is it possible to get a photo of what a grinded mast step looks like? I would hate to cut back too much!

  12. Hi all, I recently acquired a Mk1 and Mk2 maricat. I am based in Wagga and to cut a long story short, a farmer was downsizing houses and basically said that if I wanted one of his boats, I had to take both. They also came with new rudders, and complete rudder system, new tramp, new rubber for the hulls and a couple of other parts. The previous owner had both boats with the intention of doing thgem up and racing with his son. The Mk1 has already had the hulls patched and repainted by the previous owner, however all other hardware is dated. The Mk2 however has not had anything done to it. My initial theory was to work on the Mk2 and only use the Mk1 as a donor boat, however after cleaning both boats, I note that the Mk1 is in far better condition. The Mk2 is ok, with a few hairline cracks in the gelcoat, but the bigger issue is a 25cm soft spot on the top of the right hand hull deck. I really only want 1 boat as I am introducing my small kids to sailing- but we will race. Is it worth trying to fix the soft spot on the Mk2 or should I just stick with the Mk1? Also, I am thinking of raking the mast back and as such will make up new stays/ shrouds. Is it within regulation to use cable with clear PVC coating or does it need to be black/ white? Thanks in advance!
