Hi Guys

I know they are not a common boat, but I have just bought a Cal-14 and are after any information I can get....

Some intitial questions are:
- where were they built
- how have people used the cabin space
- did they ever have kites
- sail plans to get some new sails

Im also interesting in hearing experiences, I had 3 on mine in 20 knots the other day and was surprised how flat it sailed!

I was thinking about trialing a NS-14 Sail, does anyone else have any solutions to a fully battened mainy?

I sail "Hotel Charlie" (HC520) out of Melbourne, Australia.

I understand there are two versions of the Cal 14. Mark I has a shorter cockpit (and longer cabin), and the Mark II is vice versa.

You can definitely get a spinnaker for the Cal 14.

I'm glad to see you're excited about the boat -- it's pretty good isn't it?

This boat is not a CAL. The smallest model in the CAL line was the CAL 20, built from 1962-1975. If this boat is called a "Cal" it would be a very different Cal brand, not to be confused with the boats built in the USA orginally by JENSEN MARINE, Later by CAL Boats, and finally by CAL/O'DAY. Most (well ,all but 5 models) were designed by C. William Lapworth. The 5 'non-Lapworth" designs were the CAL 22, CAL 28-2, CAL 33-2, and CAL 39-4, all by C.Raymond Hunt Associates, and hte CAL 9.2 which was a Rob Perry Design. Some of the Lapworth CALs were also built under license by CALGAN Yachts in Canada.
I'll include a CAL 20 picture.

i am also an owner of a cal-14 (bought it in july 2011) and also want to know as much as i can about these boats. please correct me if this is wrong, but as far as the little information about the cal-14's that i've come across, these seem to have been built in brisbane(?), queensland, australia by a company called stoddart, seems the same company that built/builds(?) the clipper-21 and stoddart boats.

I'm pretty sure the Cal 9.2 was a Ron Holland design.

They were built in Brisbane, but I don't anything about the company.

Mr Mysto posted an advert on the Cal 14 Facebook page but I can't find it at the moment.
