Re: Cal 39 owners

I am trying to buy a cal 39, I found one that I liked and I had it surveyed. the rudder was a problem. I told the broker I want it fixed. he said all cals have a block of wood under the emergrncy rudder access that holds the rudder. any cal 39 owner have a block of wood or is this guy just trying to do something to cheat me to sell the boat

I dont quite follow...I have an emrgency rudder access on my '66 Columbia 40 covered by a bronze plate but after you use this tool to unscrew the plate...you see the rudder post head...different boat but not surer why there would be a piece of wood here...maybe someone more in the know will chime in...

Re: Cal 39 owners

I just bought a Cal 39 1983 last month but she will be going into dry dock for about a year so we can go through it. I was only able to do a walk threw once and I made a low ball offer that was excepted. The boat is in AK and will get moved to Homer next year. Any an all information would be great, I'm out of the country right now until Jan by then we will try and get some work done then. I am trying to find the mast height right now. Are they all the same height of that year and model. I am wanting to put a furling system on for a genoa but am not sure what size to go with.

If yours is truly a 1983, it's a MKIII. The MkII was built through 1982 and the MKIII began the next year. Looks like there was a standard and a tall mast version so you will need to do some measurements.

Re: Cal 39 owners

From the lay out it is some what different than the one you provided. There is only one head my boat and the galley is on the other side from the diagram you provided. I have read a lot on these boat and have found a lot of positive information. Do have anything to add positive or neg to add on these boats.
