Catalina Capri 26

Hello there, I am a new Capri 26 Owner, just looking to exchange ideas with other Capri 26 owners out there. Look forward to hearing from anyone that currently or previously owned a Capri 26.

I have a 1992 Hull#246, Complete with Heated water system
Sailing on Lake Mead Nv, winds can go from 0kts to 30kts at any moment. The wind often swirls, and changes directions. Its a crazy lake to sail.

Ill be sailing this boat until I retire (11 more years?) then I plan on upgrading and moving away to a coastal paradise.

In the process of changing sails out, the boat still has the original 1992 main which is blown out pretty bad,. Changing to a loose foot, tri-radial design.

Also currently using the 135% genoa that came with the boat, but I am considering getting a 145%. Does any one think a 155% would be too much for this boat? Im getting mixed info from some folks....some think its too much sail for the boat, others think its ok. (i have a roller furler).

Anyone have any sailing tips for this very beamy boat?
