Re: Islander Excalibur 26 vs Catalina 27

I currently own an Excalibur 26 and came out of a partnership on a Cat 27 when buying the Excalibur. My take--the Excalibur is the better sailing boat, the Catalina has more room below, more room...

Re: Another Excalibur 26

There is no fiberglass liner in any of the boats I've seen. The interior is a mix of expensive hardwoods where it is easily seen and cheaper woods where it's hidden. All of the interior fiberglass...

Re: Another Excalibur 26

The tabernacle is hinged and would provide enough movement to release a stay and lower the mast with several bodies and some mechanical assistance. Fortunately, our winters are mild and the boats...

Re: Another Excalibur 26

The mast is deck-stepped and tabernacled although I can't see using it to lower the overall height. It would be a lot of work.

I mentioned the cabin height because I'm 6'3" and have to duck way...

Re: Another Excalibur 26

Thanks very much. At some point soon I've got to update the thread. My Excalibur has moved twice and has finally settled into her permanent slip in Alamitos Bay and has received new standing...

It's funny how misinformation gets passed around. This all came up because of a conversation I had with a long time live-a-board just down the gangway from my boat. In the past he has provided me...

I've received two very different answers from men I thought knew a lot and searches I've made have left me with unclear answers, so I thought I'd throw it out to the masses and see if I can get a...

This is similar to what one feels when undertaking a long trip primarily under power with a single cylinder outboard. I've done one multi-day trip and a single all day trip with a single cylinder...

The Tohatsu 6hp long shaft outboard

The motor was a good choice for the boat, but not a good choice for the trip. A single cylinder four stroke should be used for short periods of time to get the boat into and out of the slip. It...

Out of Oceanside and a swell ride to Dana Point

I hadn't slept much because of the noise the fender, a foot or so from my ear, made all night. I did manage a few hours in the early part of the morning after texting some family in the mid-west to...

Lowering the jib in increasing winds and bobbing into Oceanside Harbor

I didn't get close to anybody else until I was almost to Oceanside. The winds had increased, I could see a light squall line to the southwest and two converging swells were beginning to toss me...

Around the Pt. Loma kelp beds

I wanted to stay as close to the edge of the kelp beds as possible without taking too much of a chance of getting caught up in the weeds. As I turned to the west, the bigger racing boat continued...

San Diego Harbor is really, really big

I motored out of Chula Vista Marina and began my turn to the right to stay in the deep channel. I didn't turn sharp enough. 100 yards out of the marina, I ran aground. I felt the sand and silt...

I just purchased a 1967 Excalibur from two owners in San Diego and will be ferrying it to Dana Point sometime in March. I will be replacing the outboard in the well with a new motor...
