    Pole Platform


    Maybe this might help you...............I bought a old 18' HOBIECAT and lashed a NEW HAVEN LIGHT DORY inside
    I CAN STAND UP
    WALK AROUND EVEN OUT ON THE FLOATS
    INSTALL MOTOR
    ETC..................ETC..........
    Paid $200 for HOBIE with trailer...........CAN IN 'T BEAT THAT FOR STABILITY

    I think I could install a polling platform as you describe on this CAT easily onto alum beams or floats.
    Have pic's if of interest​

    Yeah..I like that...now you can go camping in style!..I absolutely envy that lateen rig and sail ...I think that is a great rig for a small boat...everyone is so in love with their "masts"...but a giant compass-shaped mast is the mark of precision...or at least it is practical and I am looking into it for one of my boats..hell..maybe even for my Hunter 20!Thanks again for posting pics...Morgan in sarasota

    Hey thanks.................Don't understans your comment (compass) what does that mean ?

    I am pleased with the simple rigging. I made the 24' spar from a cedar tree on my property, and the saul was a painting trap from LOWES.

    Am about to put on a brailing line for reeffing, and just dumping the wind at dockside.

    If I can be of assistance pl's e-mail me
