Re: Cal 2-27 mast step question

I'm still hoping to get it back in the water by the end of May but time is eating my lunch. Mid June is looking more realistic. I'm catching up on some "deferred maintenance" issues on the engine. It...

Re: Maiden Voyage Newbie Trainwreck

It was only the 3rd time I'd been able to get her on a boat in 31 years of marriage. I was a little afraid I'd screwed the pooch with that manuever. She still sails with me but she prefers the light...

Re: The compass ... old hat?

I sail on a lake. I've been boating on this lake since I was a kid. Barring a sudden pea soup fog I don't think I could get lost on it if I tried. On my lake about the best use for a compass would be...

Re: Cal 2-27 mast step question

I'm ging to have to do some measuring inside and out to be sure but I'm thinking the fasteners wouldn't line up with the compression post. On my boat the post is esentially a 2"X6" post.
