Come Back to Sailing with Menger Cats

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.
