Catboat versus Sharpie
I built Reuel's 18-foot Modified Sharpie Skiff about 7 years ago. It's met my needs which were shallow draft and simplicity to the point of being primitive. "Tempo" is quick to rig and launch. The rig is simple but highly tuneable with only the snotter and downhaul. It's long keel gives it lots of directional stability so you don't have to steer constantly.
