You WILL need that fastener to secure the pop-top to the mast if you are to pursue hand rails on the the pop top. fyi ~ I sailed my first year with the pop top untethered to the mast via this fixture and it flops around significantly.. I'll get this to you by spring. Let me know if you want the legs. I can get those bent for you as well.
really? you are awesome! thanks dude.

I would assume this model was not fiscally viable for this LOA as a business model. However, does explain why they are so overweight for their class. Note: convertible vehicles (cars) are actually heavier then their fixed hard tops counterparts.
yeah. that's what i was getting at. the top of the pop top is actually quite a bit heavier than a corresponding coach roof because it has no strength from form. i hadn't thought about the hull being heavier, too.

that was the car. i found one of those. i am specigically looking for the track. one of those is missing, too.will they have that, too?

one other thing. i still have the depth sounder through hull transducer in place. the wire was cut and the actual part you read is gone. can i simply get one of my choice or do i need to figure out the brand and model that is on the boat so i can match it up?

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

a few other things: this metal box is near the battery box. it has terminals for wires, which you can almost see in the pic, but no wires were hooked to it. any idea what it is? it looks like some sort of a rather large breaker.


http://

this next electrical item is in the bilge. i took this pic while i was installing the bilge pump. again, all the wires were cut off. i have no idea where it once went. i don't think it's a depth sounder transducer. that is under the V berth. but i could be wrong. is there a reason someone would have two? it seems odd that it would be to one side ( starboard ) of the keel, rather than centered, if that's what it is. the wire coming from it appears to bo coaxal cable, which makes it seem to be a depth sounder transducer. but the location would not be good for one. i can't actually get to it to see if it has any identifying marks. any thoughts about what it is? perhaps a speed sensor?

Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s

ok. after researching it, i am pretty sure the unit in the side of the bilge is a speed sensor. still not sure of the purpose of the metal box. i think it's a breaker but i don't know what for. it wasn't hooked up to anything and each switch in the panel has a fuse. possibly for the ( missing ) motor?

Looks like it could be an old Voltage regulator?

I agree, Bacon is a must-visit for anyone in the mid-Atlantic region. If you're a resident or frequent visitor in Annapolis, there's no excuse.
