Save that Cal 27!!!!

Hey all,

We recently purchased our first boat. A 1972 CAL27 sloop from another member at the sailing club. The boat, "Slack Mole", has sat unused for the past 5 years. Needless to say she needed lots of TLC, and some new parts. We later learned of her reputation as a VERY fast racer, as all the Cal 27''s of the time.

My point is this. Last night we walked the docks of our sailing club, and noticed a lot of "Pop top" Cals just sitting, rotting away from a lack of use. Many haven''t been boarded in years. These are great boats that are fast, roomy, and great in big water as well as inland waterways. I encourage anyone looking for a potentially low cost boat, to walk the local marinas, and look for one of these boats. They are cheap to repair, and great all around boats.

Paul

Save that Cal 27!!!!

Hello, I have just purchased a good-shape Cal 27 PopTop. I''m new to sailing. What would you recommend for a new CAL 27 owner. Is there anything that stands out that I should look at or purchase to make this boat better? Also, I purchased the boat from a docking in Chula Vista, CA Marina and need to sail it to an Oxnard Marina (EG Anacapa Marina). Any suggestions for the trip?

You'd probably be best off asking your questions in a new thread, as this one was dead for over SIX years.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

But now it's not dead anymore so why shouldn't he just keep on going with this thread?

Because posting a new thread that has a subject line that actually indicates what he wants to find out would get more hits and therefore more responses.
