Re: Donating my Cal 29 to Charity

As the owner of Cal 29 hull #163 I can assure before I bought what was a train wreck we did in fact look over EVERY Cal 29 on the east coast and all the adds nation wide

I am sorry to say every boat had some pretty serious deficiency's that fell into some type of train wreck

Item number ONE is the steel mast step which cant help but have issues with all the ways they found to dump water on a mild steel beam ends badly and involves chopping apart the head area to repair

I could make a fairly endless list BUT the bottom line is they were one of the better budget boats of there time BUT I certainly was not able to locate one that did not have all kinds of deferred maintenance issues

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
