I do not have a connection to the original furler. I did quiz the guy I got the sails from about other parts....the only other Cal 22 equipment he had was a used, original boom. He was selling the sails on Craigslist near Boston.
I sailed....check it...floated on Percy Priest a few years back. No wind, high humidity and about 98 degrees made the admiral cranky. We day chartered a little boat somewhere there on the lake...surely conditions are normally better than what we saw that day. It was expensive too. Then the guy at the dock hit us up for the price of a gallon of gas, because he knew we had to motor. Not exactly a great way to get someone to come back after they laid out a couple hundred to charter a boat for 3 miserable hours.
I would be curious to see the Cal 22 manual. I'm not sure there would be anything in it I haven't figured out by now, but you never know. Do you find it useful? Any discussion of rig tuning?
