Re: Cal 33-2 Tender?

I own a 1985 Cal 33. Later 33's had a mast about two feet shorter than the one on mine. She is not particularly tender, the PO told me he never had the rail in the water, and I never have. The earlier posts concerning using a 130% or less jib are good advice. I have a 150 and above 15 knots this will overpower the boat.

Re: Cal 33-2 Tender?

Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't consider calling any cruising sailboat tender. If you reef and furl according to the conditions, then you can sail comfortably in anything up to 25 knots. And if you don't reef and furl, then you're tender. I made a funny.

I've sailed 33-2's now and then over 20 years, and looked at several for purchase and thought they all have the same rig, so this is surprising news. Can you explain the source?

Re: Cal 33-2 Tender?

I apologize for not replying sooner. PO and the owner of a later Cal told me That the 85's masts were two feet taller. This spring, I'll measure it out just to make sure.
