Re: Crossing the Atlantic, and...

Hmmmmm, I think I'll settle for my 4-year old learning how to read first... ;-)

Seriously, though, they both know the theory behind how to tack, even if they're not quite ready to crank on a...

Re: Crossing the Atlantic, and...

Solid advice, "hellosailor", but I think I'm on a better plan... we do own a small 1968 New Horizons 26' that I refer to as "lakeworthy" but not "sea worthy" that we use for daysailing, and we've...

Re: Crossing the Atlantic, and...

Lets just say my budget is hypothetically not an issue... in real life, I'm in the market for well looked after boats from the 1970's... but for this trip I would consider a larger loan with the...

Crossing the Atlantic, and...

In roughly the year 2020, my family and I are planning on taking a year off to travel the world (not necessarily all boat-based). It's a daydream at this point, but I sometimes fantasize about doing...

Re: Sea Fevers Cal 29 Beam of Death

I'm going to be checking out a Cal 29 next week and I am taking a boroscope with me. Did I get it right that I will be able to see under there from somewhere on the port side near the bulkhead? ...

Re: New Horizons 26? Swing keel fixed in up position?

I am the proud owner of a crusty old 1968 New Horizons 26-- unfortunately it needs more money put into it than I am willing to spend on reviving it- pretty badly neglected by previous owner. But...

Re: Do YOU own a Cal 2-29?(Headroom question)

Hmmmmm, so I've found one for about $7000 CDN that is in OK shape. I went and had a look at it, but I'm realizing that my frame of reference on used boats isn't very good yet. I haven't done enough...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Though I can't imagine how there could possibly have been a good reason for the Bounty to have left port in the first place, one of the main points of that Rescue Swimmer's article seems to have been...

Re: Cal 2-29 vs Cal 2-27 (Crown 28, actually...)

Could be, or could be not! Information is needed, and so far, hard to come by. You want to come along on that shakedown? I'm going to need someone aboard with more experience than me.... (I'll...

Re: Cal 2-29 vs Cal 2-27 (Crown 28, actually...)

Hmmm, good idea,... maybe Crown's back on the list since that's what it has for a layout. The only way to know for sure is to find one to see in person and lay around... the issue with this...

Re: Cal 2-29 vs Cal 2-27 (Crown 28, actually...)

Thanks both for your input. The owner of the Crown 28 got back to me quickly, when I told him my height, and my wife's height, he responded, "I don't want to discourage a prospective buyer, but I...

Cal 2-29 vs Cal 2-27 (Crown 28, actually...)

So, I've been very impressed with everything I've read about the Cal 2-29, and lots of former owners have made the same comment "it's the one boat I wish I'd never sold"...

There's one for sale...

Re: Hello From Kamloops, BC

It definitely is on my list... though I realize I`m jumping the gun when I say that I'm actually more interested in purchasing.... Yes, I do know what BOAT stands for, but I've seen a few enticing...

Re: Hello From Kamloops, BC

The Kamloops & District Yacht Club has a decent facility on Shuswap Lake. We keep the boat moored there, have use of the KDYC wharf, the boat ramp, and can keep the boat onshore at the site so the...

Re: Do YOU own a Cal 2-29?(Headroom question)

Wow, thanks for the useful input, svHyLyte. I had noticed the "not flat" sole in photos... so maybe the key would be, when it's my turn in the galley... to stand in the middle of the boat while...

Re: Do YOU own a Cal 2-29?(Headroom question)

Yes, I figured it was likely less than 6'3" (my height), as are I would assume, most boats under 30'. I'm just trying to ascertain how much under 6'3" it really is. A little stoop is OK for a...

Do YOU own a Cal 2-29?(Headroom question)

I have been looking all over the place (including lurking on this site for quite awhile) to try and figure out the headroom on the Cal 2-29. There is one approx. 12hr drive away from me that I am...

Hello From Kamloops, BC

Hi there,

I'm new both to sailing (recently heavily, and I believe incurably, addicted to sailing) and to this forum. I live a few hundred kilometres from the saltwater (hence the user name), but...
