Re: Adding a boom bail to a '67 Cal 25

My boom vang is just attached to a small stainless strap screwed to the boom. I did use the riv-nuts? instead of the previous owners sheet metal screws.

Re: Herniated jibsheets

I'm a real big fan of the soft shackle too. Bowline on the ends of your jibsheet and run continuous. Never have to worry about losing a sheet. Sail changes are easy if you have the need.

Re: p26 topping lift rigging question

Where near Syracuse are you going to be sailing? I'm at the east end of Oneida Lake with a Cal 25. As far as a spin halyard goes, I don't think it's ever a bad thing to have a spare line to the top...

Re: P26 combination mast/deck light

I ran a single ground and two hot leads to my light. I figured that I really would not be needing both at the same time. I can always change that if I want. I like the idea of the LED.
