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.

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.

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...
