This 2008 Com-Pac Picnic Cat features the Mastendr™ Quick Rig Sailing System. This allows the user to raise the mast and have the sail up in the same amount of time it takes to get a power boat in the water, cranked up and away from the dock. The boom, sail, and gaff all stay on the mast stub even when the mast is down. The side stays are always in proper adjustment. Once the headstay is attached and locked down with the lever handle, the rig comes into the tension that has been previously set. On the road, the mast, gaff and boom stow securely on the boom gallows, assuring worry-free trailering. Unlike a sloop, her mast, because it steps in the bow of the boat, does not extend beyond the end of the boat when folded horizontal. In the water, here stability comes from a broad hull form and low– center-of-gravity gaff rigged sail plan. This boat is well equipped with teak cockpit flooring and accents, boarding ladder, anchor roller with deck pipe, newer sail cover, trolling motor, twin batteries and on-board charger.
This 1981 Spindrift Rascal 14 is a great starter boat for 2-3 sailors. This boat was stored indoors for many years and is still in great shape for its age. Over 3000 Rascals were build, dating back to 1961.
