Re: Shipping my new-to-me boat

The lowest was from the shady guys - 2200 or 2300, I think. Joule was well over $3K. A-1 was 2640, but would have been significantly less if I had gone directly with Warren.

Re: Shipping my new-to-me boat

My dad had the dodger and bimini removed. He put the boom in the cabin, after wrapping it in carpet and shrinkwrap. The mast was on a wooden frame, and wrapped with the running rigging and headsail...

I recently purchased a Cal 31 from my father, who has owned it for over a decade, has bought a larger boat, and made me a truly awesome deal (I think!).

Re: Best metal sailboat information

Both of those that Jak linked are very handsome sailboats. The first looks a bit broad of beam but may be the camera angle. However the hulls look very fair, and the second really is an eye-turner....

Re: Cal 31

Re: In-mast furler advice

I've sailed a few in-mast boats - I think saying "head upwind when reefing" is too simplistic. Ideally, try to get the sail angle inline with the slot that the sail enters into the mast. If at all...
