Water in Cal 21?
I'm new to having a Cal (and somewhat new to sailing in general) and have a dilemma. My husband and I took our Cal 21 out for the second time tonight (the first time ended short when we almost lost the mast after I tried to adjust the main stay... oops). When we trailered her, we noticed she was very back-heavy - her bow wasn't even sitting on the trailer. We looked all over the boat for a drain plug to empty out any water in the hull, but couldn't find one. This happened on our last boat, an O'day Daysailer, when its centerboard was leaking, but we eventually were able to drain the boat by pulling a plug. We cannot find any way to drain the Cal 21. Are we missing something? Is this normal, or is there something wrong with the drop keel/hull?
Thanks in advance for any response!
