Re: cockpit tent

A guy named wayne martin posted a pretty slick looking cockpit tent that seems to work rather easily on the montgomery sailboats facebook group page. it is a blackthorn 2 tube tent that seems to set up pretty easily and with minimal modifications and the tent is around 85 bucks on amazon. It could w...

Re: Safety Tether

Thanks for the pic and thoughts! Could you post a pic of how it is backed up inside the cabin?

Re: Questions for Jerry Montgomery

Hi again Jerry, I've often wondered how the SageCat might do with manual self steering gear fitted. I've read that the Monty 15 and 17 and sage 17 would likely have better "tracking" stability due to a longer keel. I've never sailed any of those boats so I can't make any comparisons in steerage. How...

Re: Questions for Jerry Montgomery

Thanks for the advice Jerry! I do like the idea of a heavy weather sail and the idea of a triangular and battenless one seem to make a lot of sense. I would imagine it might make it a bit less expensive being battenless as well. Time to start saving my pennies!

Re: Questions for Jerry Montgomery

Hi Jerry, I am owner of a sagecat hull #6 and couldn't be happier with her so far! I have done two summer cruises for about two weeks each in the San Juan Islands with my wife, her friend and our small dog. However I primarily sail in the Columbia river gorge where the wind gets big fairly regularly...

Re: Heaving to and reefing a Sagecat

I had a fun weekend sailing in a bit stronger mid october winds and got a chance to video reefing my Sagecat. It is certainly getting colder in the Pacific NW but this weekend was sunny and beautiful!

Re: SageCat cruise report

I would agree with dave. The 8lb would be great for any condition a person is likely to encounter. The 13 does give me peace of mind, but is quite oversized. Another nice benefit of the 8 is that according to dave it will fit behind the bulkhead. The 13 lb will not fit behind the bulkhead and must b...

Re: Heaving to and reefing a Sagecat

I had a moment to film my method of "parking" my sagecat. When parked, the motion is very calm in the boat and it is easy to reef, look for something below, or generally do whatever you need to do away from the helm. The boat crabs forward at about .4 knots or so, basically across the wind. I realiz...

Re: SageCat cruise report

I hope these pics give a bit of an idea of my anchor storage area. Obviously the mantus is not in the boat in this picture, but that anchor would sit on the blue pad with its shank resting on the pool noodle and its chain and rode in a plastic container aft of the bulkhead. I typically don't day sai...
