Ahoy!

Hey Everyone,

I'm a soon to be owner (Mar/Apr) of a 1970 Cal 21. This will be my first boat and I'm looking forward to learning the ropes (err lines... err halyards). Currently a armchair sailor learning everything I can and will be taking a few lessons out there before I go it alone, but can't wait to start putting all the academic knowledge I'm learning into practice.

The Puget Sound/Lake Washington in Washington (Seattle) will be my primary learning grounds at first, so if you see a crazy guy in a white cal 21 heading straight for you, watch out!

-Colin

We have some members nearby at Shilshoal and up in Edmonds as well. Have you done the locks yet?

@LandLocked Here's a pic I took when I looked at it the first time. I'm paying payments right now, but will have her in April or sooner. Can't wait.

@erps I haven't done the locks yet. The gentleman I'm buying the boat from is going to take me out a couple times on it and I'm going to ask him to show me the ropes with the locks. I've been reading up on them, but seems like something I need to experience with someone who's done it a few times before I try it by myself.

I haven't done the locks yet either, although I've been down there on shore to watch the drama from a front row seat. I'd like to go down that way and go through sometime, just to have another experience under my belt. Preferably on a friend's boat instead of mine though.

Have fun.

Looks like it's in great shape!
