Cal 20 component names

I'm new to this site. I've sailed some, have worked with wood and fiberglass - some and am in the process of refurbishing a 1964 Cal 20. Can someone suggest a source that will help me learn the correct names for the parts and components of the boat and rigging? Thanks for your support.

If you are unfamiliar with standard sailboat terminology, get a copy of a basic book on boats like Chapman. The Cal 20 is a pretty simple boat - nothing special or unusual.

Another good starter reference is "Royce's Sailing Illustrated" - not sure if they are still in print, but you might find one at a used bookstore.

Sites like this: Glossary of Sailboat Technology and Research Terms, Definitions, Words. might help too.

You can start with Steve Seals parts catalog for the Cal 20:

Seals Spars and Rigging: Cal 20 Catalog

We bought rigging and gear from him, and found him very knowledgeable and helpful.

Also, you can puruse our online gallerires from refurbing our '67 Cal 20, in which offending parts are named by name!

Have fun, and post some pics of your Cal20. My brother sails ours all the time, and even I got to do a cruise on the Columbia River last summer with her.

Ah, Jim beat me to it. Seals Spars is my source as well.
And Jim's detailed restoration site is also my inspiration and reference for repairs for my own '68 Cal 20. Thank you Jim, keep those photos up if you would please, sir. If I can manage to find a boat to crew, mine will be coming out of the water for a restore as well, including those #$$% original non-stainless keel bolts. BTW Jim, I'm currently moored behind Aurora (rafted to a derelict on the westernmost finger so I can get past that #$$% sand bar that so conveniently runs through the marina without having to wait for high water.) :-)

Thanks for the kind words. I'll post the link this thread to my brother, and you should say hello the next time you see him at the docks. He can answer keelboat questions as well, at least with the advice that we got from Steve Rander of Schooner Creek boatworks about the best way to proceed. (Go heavy on the Boatlife "life caulk" to replace the rotted seal... Also, I wouldn't use 5200 on the boat, but my brother was tempted...)

I assume that all the snow is gone now and McCuddy's and our boats survived?

Jim, the restoration site was a great inspiration to me as well. I think the link is on Steve's site but if not you can get a .pdf of an owner's manual put together by the class association from their web site.
