Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Under side of the deck showing the port and starboard areas where the chain plates protrude through the deck. There is wood rot to replace, and they have been replaced previously by the looks of the patch.

Under side of the cockpit area. Still a lot of sanding to do on the deck/cabin undersides.

Picked up a Ryobi 5", variable speed random oscillating sander from a pawn shop. Man is that better than my old Craftsman 4" single speed random oscillating sander!

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

[QUOTE=othomas3;1940602]Eventually I want to lift it off the trailer and drop the swing keel.

I would love to know how you propose to do this. I bought jacks so I could get the keel out of the boat in my yard, but don't want to hire some kind of rig to get boat up and off the trailer. Has perplexed me for a while now.

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

So I cut two bulkheads for the for and aft of the swing keel housing using the previous bulkheads for patterns.

When I did a dry fit the port and stbd edges of the bulkheads aren't even close to touching.

Pulling the deck/cabin off the hull may have been a mistake!

Now to figure a way to pull the hull to the bulk heads.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Oh dear, I think sailorboy15's advice on June 18 was prudent. Wish I had a suggestion . Sorry! Best of luck in the process.

Try ratchet straps around hull at bulked location.

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Here is what I would do... Probably at 3 or four places along the length of the hull

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Patched screw holes and chips along the top edge of the hull that was covered by the deck. I don't know if water ever made it's way through the damaged sections of the hull but since I was could see it I fixed it.

Stern has stress cracks that I will have to deal with. Thinking about reinforcing the stern on the inside of the stress cracks with some fiberglass cloth.

Have two holes to patch on the port side and then I can put ratchet straps on and install the two bulkheads on either side of the swing keel pivot point.

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

I took my handy pressure washer and used the high pressure spray to remove the loose paint on the underside of the cockpit and cabin. It's easy because I have it removed and setting upside down. Of course I discovered some, not a lot, of damaged fiberglass and rotted wood.: rolleyes: That isn't so bad considering this boat is probably 40 years old or so. I had more wear and tear at that age: laugher.

I've attached a few pictures.

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Cut out a sample area of damage fiberglass and wood. The wood isn't rotten, just damaged fiberglass. Checked the other areas with an awl and the wood is intact! It looks like the rotten wood is where the port and stbd chain plates go through the deck. That's a relief. Now to repair the fiberglass and fix the rotten wood areas.

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Thanks for sharing all your hard work and lessons with the group!! I'm silently following your progress and excited to see the final outcome.

I'm hoping to embark on a much less ambitious refit of a '72 CAL21 and will give back (share my progress) as well in another thread.

Best Regards, Armando
