    What happened to Gary Hoyt's wishbone cat-ketches? I remember going to an Annapolis Boat Show in the mid '70's and being impressed by the one I went aboard. I especially liked the lounge and table in the aft cabin. Later I recall reading about them being "sailed like a big dinghy" what ever that might mean..... What is history's verdict on them, their sail plan, their construction, etc.
