Cal 28-2

Hi Gang, I'm another Cal 28-2 owner. I'm located in Connecticut and sail Long Island Sound and points east.. My racing days are mostly in the past, back when I was a partner on a Santana 30 that we raced extensively. I've had my 1896 Cal, Nauti-Dog, for 3 years now and I'm very happy with her performance.

One thing she's missing though is a backstay adjuster. I'm getting ready to add one before the boat goes in the water in a few weeks. Anyone have any recommendations? (I wish there were more of us out there... I used to have a Tanzer 22 that had a HUGH owners group.)

Anyhow, I'm leaning towards a Sailtec model 10 hydraulic unit (or maybe a model 8, have to go down to the yard and measure the pin dia tomorrow); or perhaps a simple Wichard non-hydraulic model which is not much more than a big turnbuckle with a wheel to adjust things on the fly.

Any input would be appreciated.
