Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Oh dear, I think sailorboy15's advice on June 18 was prudent. Wish I had a suggestion :confused:. Sorry! Best of luck in the process. :o

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Thanks Rod, I already cut the angle at 45 degrees. Hope it doesn't throw the length off if I trim to 60 degrees. Wish it wasn't so expensive to have it lifted high enough to drop the keel for a close...

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

You are quite the surgeon! And it looks like you got to your patient just in time. Was this boat sunken at some time? You have earned my hearty admiration for taking on this task. I reckon it will be...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

I have begun construction of the keel plug using a very large piece of oak that was milled from a tree that got blown down a few hurricanes ago. I have yet to lower the keel when boat not on water,...

Wow Rod, You are the man when it comes to the Cal21!:):). Makes a lot of sense when you think about it. I was going to put a turnbuckle from the deck to the tack of the sail. Yeah, I know a nutty...

Mast hardware to catch clam looking hook

This is embarrassing, but I can't find hardware I need to attach my jib halyard to the mast on my '70 Cal21. It has a roller furling rig and the end of the wire has a clam type hook that then...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Wow, lost keel at sea and made it back?! Hard for me to imagine how it could stay upright w/o ballast. But to answer your question, no I don't know where you can find a replacement unless you buy one...

Re: CAL 21 Refit in South Carolina

Ot, No pics right now. My current goals are different than yours I think. I was born in '37 and my plan is to just use 21 as a daysailer. Only work inside was to firm up support around the trunk....

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Thanks again Rod, My mast is indeed 26' long. Same as the Cal20. The Cal20 has 1'4" more waterline, 4" more beam, 940lbs more ballast, and last but surely not least about 500lbs more weight in it's...

Re: Cal 21 Owners

Hey Rod, thanks for your attention to my query! You made one assumption that I think throws everything in a negative direction - that I would cut off at the top of the mast. Not what I had in mind....

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

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

Hey sailnova, Thanks for the feedback. I wonder why the flex didn't mess up the support pole for the mast? Maybe you were just lucky? Phew, nervous stuff. I will install a transverse support in front...
