Win a Cat Boat Sailboat!


Here’s your opportunity to win a Cat Boat Sailboat.

The design was taken from a Phil Bolger design called “Bob Cat” which is a plywood Stitch & Glue boat with three planks per side. We changed the construction to Strip built, and made the hull round in the traditional cat boat style. The boat is half as wide as it is long with a large transom and barn door rudder.

The sailboat was built at the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center, across the street from the North Carolina Maritime Museum, by the volunteers and staff of the Museum.

Tickets are available for $5 at the Museum Store inside the North Carolina Maritime Museum.

Proceeds from the raffle go to the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum to help fund programs at the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center.

The raffle takes place at the Annual Meeting & Holiday Open House for the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum on December 3, 2017 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Ticket holders need not be present for the raffle and the winner will be notified if not in attendance.
