Well, I no longer have a CAL 21, but I do have a lot of pictures and 38 years of CAL 21 experience. The drawing of the keel plug on the ww.cal21 web is based on NODROG's original Jensen Marine supplied keel plug, modified by my Dad after the original design of using 2 bungee cords to hold it in place failed. The hinge was originally a smal lbutt hinge and that pulled out of the wood after less than a month of sailing. The strap hinge shown was the repair. I'll try to answer any questions, my only problem is that I can't just offer to take pics of any fetures of our boat.......that is one problem of selling our pride and joy! But as I said.... I do have a lot of old (and not so old!) pics that may help!
I have added 3 pics of our keel plug and one of the original cover for the keel well. I can supply higher resolution pics if needed.
