A white Black Cat

Dudley Dix has always painted his boat white, the Didi 38 black Cat was to be no different, starting the Cape to Rio race in yellow and sporting the sponsers logo on the spinnaker, a Black Cat after the name of the peanut butter maker, Black Cat.

Photo by R McBride, the camera was a Sony cybershot.

The boat was later sold, the yellow became white but a black cat still exists.

This was the very first Radius Chine design in wood/epoxy from Dudley, they are really easy and fast to build, I did the hull to a 43 foot version in just six weeks and on my own.
