Rosie 5.3m Traditional Ketch 
A traditional style ketch built out of sheet plywood which makes for easy construction. The craft features an unstayed rig for ease of rigging and the rig gives great flexibility of sail plan. The craft can be sailed on the main and mizzen, the main, or the mizzen replacing the main forward. The tandem c/bs allow the craft to be easily balanced regardless of the sail plan and with the c/b down, down wind performance is exceptionally good. Rosie features a double ballast tank amidships which gives the craft excellent stability and there are bouyancy tanks in the bow and stern to give positive floatation. Hull speed is easily achieved using a 2½hp outboard motor

Designed for coastal cruising where its shallow draught and ability to take the bottom will be most appreciated. The craft has an easily driven hull configuration which allows it to sail smartly to windward and this combined with the generous steel centreboard makes it a very handy craft even under adverse conditions. The Cachalot has a  traditional appearance and a 5 berth layout with large galley and chart table. The inboard auxillary engine is mounted under the forward end of the cockpit and is covered by the companionway steps. Engines from 5-10hp are recommended for this vessel.
