Re: Cal 21 Owners

More pictures and drawings, unfortunately... still can't quite get those drawings from the old brochures to come out bigger. I'll try re-scanning and post later.

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Olin.
on our 1970 model the plywood was more like 5/8" and consisted of a 6-8" plank across the top that backed up the hull-deck joint across the top of the transom and also the bolts for the top...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

That steel rod that I mentioned, and should show in both my sketch and the drawing that my Dad made of our keel-plug, is what keeps the keel plug fro mriding up. The plug is also prevented fro...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Well ,I haven't removed the deck from a CAL 21, but there were pictures of one that the owner did remove the deck to replace most of the interior woodwork, he created a custom layout as part of his...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Well, they say it is always best to go back to the source for questions<GRIN!>
On the KEEL PLUG, most of it is wood, the JENSEN Marine/CAL original was (believe it or not) Mahogany. Any stable hard...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

That fitting is 100% original from CAL. We had the same thing on our 1970 model. the purpose was to allow furhter tensioning of the halyard after you raised the jib. The technique was to take the...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

The original CAL 21 mast would be 26'0" extrusion length (same as the CAL 20) so if your mast matches (or nearly?) matches that length is is original or at least is the correct length.
I figured...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Did you find a source for a new boom end yet?
The BEST idea would be to contact Steve Seals in California, he used to work for Jensen Marine and now sells rigging parts for many of our good-old CALs...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Well, speaking as someone who sailed a CAL 21 for 37 years, I wouldn't do it. First, it really isn't going to improve anything (except maybe reduce your "air draft" by that 12-14".... but that only...

Re: Soliciting thoughts on a new outboard

The original post mentioned that he has a 1968 CAL 25, that answers the question of whether this is a 25 or a 2-25. The 2-25 did not go into production until the 1977 model year. I agree though that...

Re: Cal 21 mast length?

I don't remember the exact length of the mast, but 26'4" jumps out of my memory. I have a copy of the original sailplan drawing from Bill Lapworth and the mast length is noted there. It is the same...

Re: mahogany tiller

I assume that you are refering to the RUDDER, since the tiller is unlikely to be in the water since it is attached to the top of the rudder. You could leave the rudder in the water all the time, but...

Re: New CAL 21 Owner

One important point to watch when stepping the mast on a CAL 21 is to be sure that all turnbuckles are properly positioned (be sure toggles are standing up, toggles are the "U" shaped parts that the...

Re: Cal-14

OOPS!
You are 100% correct.....I must have been at least half-asleep when I typed Rob Perry! (Do I need to "eat my hat" now? If you are familiar with the history of the CAL 9.2 you will get the...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

A few more thing to address the low number of CAL 21s built. I don't think it was problems stepping/unstepping the mast that "killed" the CAL 21. I know of many other similar trailerable sailboats...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Exactly how many CAL 21s were built is hard to pin down exactly. Jensen Marine (aka CAL Sailboats) had 2 plants at the time that the 21 was in production, one in Costa Mesa, CA and one in Marlboro,...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Sailnova, the key to using the 1/4" brass rod for a locking bolt is to set it up right.
First, we inserted a bushing into the hole in hte keel for the locking bolt, reducing the hole to just over...

Re: Looking to buy C21-many keel questions

Sailnova;
After lowering the keel and inserting the locking bolt (by now you probably figured out where it goes?) you unhook the cable from the tip of the keel, and reel in the cable on hte winch....

Re: Hi, we too got a new/used Cal 21

Rippy, the transverse bulkhead just forward of the keel well is VERY necessary! The forces of the keel act against that bulkhead reducing flex of the keel well which prevents fatigue at the point...

Re: Hi, we too got a new/used Cal 21

Sailnova;
Even with the bulkheads and everything in place the top of the keel trunk will still flex and sway a bit undersail. It only moves about 1/4 -1/2" due to the bulkhead restraining it...but...

Re: Cal 21 Owners
