The story of the awe-inspiring wooden catboats unique to the Jersey Shore’s Barnegat Bay is told in this pictorial history. Showcasing tales both the past and present, this narrative records the comical, sentimental and often unbelievable stories from the sailors who have raced and cruised the majestic 50-foot-mast A Cats since the 1920s. Informations on the boats’ designers, builders and associated yacht clubs complete the account of the boats’ contribution to sailing history and gorgeous paintings and stunning action-packed photographs illustrate the oral histories, archiving forever one of sailing’s most beautiful and captivating fleets.
