Bill Menger had a video produceed to extol the virtues of the family
of Menger catboats. It contains sailling footage of the Menger 19
and Menger 23 along with Bill's own descriptions of how to raise
the tabernacle mast, raise the sail, reefing, handling weather helm,
and other sailing techniques. The excerpts accessible on this page
were digitized for the original Menger website in 1999, hence the
small size and low resolution. We hope to make the entire video
available in better resolution soon.
