Catalina "Capri 26" comments
Would anyone familiar with the Catalina Capri 26 care to comment about:
inboard vs outboard
It would be used as a lakeboat and coastal, bay areas. At the most a Florida - Bahamas trip in favorable conditions.

OH its an awful boat
really high depreciation
and so forth
Now tell me where the one you are looking at is located, best with the telephone or email of the owner ...
Although I am not familiar with the bahamas I probably would not consider to sail there with a capri 26, but than i might be wrong
( as I am certainly with my first statements ..lol . I am looking for one ! )
I hope this helps
You can see pictures of her in my avitar and sig.
I seriously doubt either one cares much at this point...since the posts in question are FIVE YEARS OLD. Please don't revive dead threads and you might want to read the dates of the posts before responding to them.
BTW Wega24 most likely was being sarcastic given his looking for one.
Also recommend you read the post in my signature.
LOL, my bad,
My blood just got up about my boat. You know how it is. :)
I read your post, and will be more careful. Thanks
De nada captain Jim. :)
Capri 26 help!
Hello there I am also A Capri 26 owner, I appreciate your enthusiasm for the boat. Its very hard to get info on her. Your last poat said you were considering getting a larger Genoa, Did you? and if so how does it sail? I am considering a 155% but my fellow sailors seem to think that the 155% will be overpowering her, and hard to handle. What are your thoughts?
Capri's are built adequate for what they are designed for - a light day sailor & weekender. I wouldn't hesitate to do some coastal crusing picking the days carefully and keeping the weather radio on.
It's got an active class association ( Capri 26 National Association ) and is a good solution for a pocket cruiser.
PS - whether a 155% is overpowering it will depend entirely on the winds in your area. I like a 140 to 135% for lake sailing and winds of 10 to 20 knots.
I just learned about the Capri 26.
I've sailed the 18 (for several years) and 22.
I thought the line topped out with the 25, which is a
slightly bigger version of a 22, which is a slightly bigger
version of an 18. The 26 looks like a whole 'nother thing,
I've found several old links to boats that were once for sale,
but not there any more.
Does anyone here know of a 26 for sale?
Preferably somewhere near Texas, but any US boat would

Pretty good source for trailerable boats.
