Boat Sailing in Orange County, California

Back Bay Boat Works 
"Specialists in Mini-Multihull Boats.... Back Bay Boatworks was established in 1986 by Don Rypinski who has extensive boat design and production experience. Beginning in 1962 Don worked for Carter Pyle at Newport Boats when the 18 foot 'P' Cat (a very successful predecessor to the Hobie Cat) along with the Olympic Finn and Kite Dingy were in production. In l972, Don worked with Richard Arthur on the design of the Balboa 20 sailboat produced by Arthur Marine.... In 1986, Don began designing a series of small, lightweight multi-hull boats which could be transported on an automobile roof rack.... The TRITON Tandem Sailer was conceived to be a lightweight, roofrack transportable sailing kayak that can be paddled, motored or sailed by two adults each in a separate cockpit.... The Versacat Coaching boat was originally developed to provide paddling and rowing clubs with a boat that was stable, manouverable, economic and easy to transport and store. The entire boat without the motor weighs approximately 350 lbs. It can be powered by any gas outboard up to 15 hp max. or by an electric trolling motor. There is considerable storage in each hull and in the console on deck."  Costa Mesa
