Compac catboats
Has anyone had experience sailing Compac catboats?  How do they perform?  Any issues on or off the mooring?

Not much experience, only a couple I know of on Northshore on Boston, both SunCats, l believe. Only seen them sailing in light wind, and appeared under canvassed, particularly when approaching boat wakes. Grayson, in his The Cape Cod Catboat, review section mentions the higher boom height and lower sail area impacting performance somewhat, but maybe requiri g later reefing. They've been around for quite a while, and believe have a good build reputation.
You may want to try the Listserve site or The Catboat Lounge (facebook !), to get a wider response.
Good luck, happy sailing.
