TRIM AGAIN is a 24’ catboat fashioned after the Daniel Crosby Catboat TRIM. Eldredge-McInnis of Boston provided the design and she was built by Merton E. Long and Ed Ryder. She was laid down in October 1957 in a boathouse specifically built for her on the estate of Stanley Ferguson, in Wings Neck, MA, and launched on Memorial Day 1959. A founding Catboat of the Catboat Association, TRIM AGAIN has been in the care of Mr. Jack Spratt for more than 20 years.
TRIM AGAIN is considered the finest cruising Catboat ever commissioned. Merton Long had enough of the finest teak, cedar, white oak and mahogany money could buy and enough materials were ordered to build three boats so that only thebest materials were used. TRIM AGAIN’s maintenance reflects that legacy of quality: in 2010 she wasre-fastenedusing #16 monel fasteners!
