We find our Boat!

In march of 2009 we found Stray Cat in Key West Florida! She is a 2002 Wildcat Catamaran sailboat. She is 35' long and 21.3' wide, with a 3.3' draft. She is a galley up design with a full compliment of sails and navigation equipment.  After addressing some concerns found in the survey we completed the purchase and prepared to bring her home to Georgia. The plan was for the previous owner to accompany us on the delivery trip and instruct us in sailing a cat. When he fell and broke his leg 3 days prior to departure that wasn't going to happen so Freddie and I were on our own.
