Re: Cal cockpit drains

It was just like you said. Not a plug, just plugged up. I got one of them clear! Mine are pipe elbows connected by plastic hose. Not a real good setup.

Re: new owners of Cal 36

I'm kind of surprised at how little information there is about this boat. It appears very similar to the 40 but not a lot of help there either. Just surprised. That's all. It's a classic old plastic...

Cal cockpit drains

We have a new-to-us Cal 36 and I have lots of questions. Here's a simple one that's probably Cal or old sailboat specific. The small cockpit drains in the corners forward against the hatch bulkhead....

Outboards for through-transom boats

I can't remember if this has been covered on Sailnet forums before. The issue of through transom outboards on boats so designed. I like the position while running but have an older Johnson that the...

Re: Jib Furling

I had a furler on my first boat, Balboa 24 and it was a pain. Swore I wouldn't have one again. The new owner has fixed some issues with it and says it's great. I evidently didn't have it set up right...

ReIntroducing myself.

I'm a sailor again. We had our Catalina 27 for sale for 6 months and I had thrown in the towel, gave away my spare parts and loose gear. It broke my heart to give up but I felt like it was the only...

C27 Cabin Hand Holds

We plan to do more ocean sailing in our C27 and there are no hand holds in the cabin. I was thinking about adding some and wonder if anyone has added overhead or bulkhead handrails to their 27?

Using shock cord

How does one knot or splice hardware onto shock cord? I have never used it except ready-made bungees with hooks. If I want to connect snaps or rings how to I do it?
