Re: Excalibur 26

Devika is an Excalibur 26, hull number 301, made by Iona Yachts in 1975. She has two spinnakers, I sail single or short handed, so I mostly use the 150 genoas with a Harken roller furler.

If you are still looking for pictures regarding spinnaker set up, I can send you some.

Because I sail solo I was thinking of trying a spinnaker sock - but I also would like to look into a gennaker(spelling?).

You can check out Devika at my site David Kadison's GalacticDrifter 2012.

dbrock010 Hi there. I bought my Excalibur 26 two and a half years ago in Moss Landing, CA and sailed the boat to her new home in Monterey, CA with her previous owner. I really love this boat and the more work we put into it, the more we love her. Our outboard is mounted on the transom and the well is used for the fuel tank. After redoing all the wiring and updating the interior, we are now ready to update the safety lines. She has a furler for the jib. My friend and I want to sail the Spinnaker Cup from San Francisco to Monterey, but she is not rigged for a spinnaker. And from the looks of it, it doesn't appear that any previous owners ever used a spinnaker on the boat. If anyone has any photos or word descriptions of the Excalibur's spinnaker setup, I would love to hear about it. Thanks.

joeording We have a '65 Wayfarer Excalibur 26, 'Gefion', she's awesome! We've got a '78 6HP Johnson long-shaft outboard for power, fits in the well with some finagling.

Our boat came with a folding outboard rack to hold the outboard in the cabin sole when sailing or docked, and a fiberglass insert for the hole so the bottom of the hull is fair without the motor.

It also has several different headsails, including a spinnaker, if anybody is curious about the measurements let me know and we'll spread them out on the Marina Green and see what we have.

The previous owner used to race the boat, but it had been rather neglected when we got it. We gave it a good cleaning, replaced most of the running rigging, and we enjoyed a season of sailing on the bay. Now we're waiting for the weather to get better, and for our 'new' boat to get delivered.

tweitz Mine was Islander from '67. I am curious, I remember some of them had a problem with lateral movement in the keel, which was a pretty deep fin (4'11" if I recall). Was this a widespread problem?
