The first Dove was a Cal 24.

Looks like a well cared for boat. Piercy Priest looked like a good lake when I was looking for a marina last year. Looks like all you have to do is untie the dock lines and GO.

Good pick!

I think I saw a discussion on another board that said Dove was another design, can't recall at the moment. Lapworth maybe?

!!! Jeff and Aaron both dig my boat?

Best. Day. Ever.

Yeah the main sheet setup is something that I want to look at changing, but not sure what my options are right now. Traveler? Double mains (a la Tom Mays)? Eh, I'm a newbie, not a huge deal yet. It does have a vang tho.

Re: My boat!!! (part 2)

Congratulations, Those are very nice boats. I had use of one when I lived in Savannah Georgia. I traded use of the boat for doing maintenance and teaching the owner to sail better. The boat sailed very well as I recall. The only thing I did not like is that the mainsheet attaches directly to the backstay. That fitting broke while we were sailing and it was hard to even jury rig a temporary connection to get home on. But these were amazingly nice boasts for the size and era.

Nice. Fresh water and a caring owner sure is easier on a boat than salt.
