Re: Hard tiller steering Cal 36

So since it's a tube that terminates above waterline, I can pull it in the water? I'm sure the tube and stock have corrosion and crud. I have only had the boat since last fall and most of my work has...

Hard tiller steering Cal 36

And put her in neutral while motoring to see what effect that has, too.

Hard tiller steering Cal 36

It was VERY hard pull. Yes, it lessened greatly and was back to steering easily as I slowed and went very slowly into the marina. It's my first trip out of the marina just relocating to a new marina...

Re: How Old is Your Boat

'67 Cal 36 so she's still 12 years younger than me. My neighbor at the marina noted that she is the same age as my boat. As I have stepped up in size and perceived "seaworthiness" I've gone older: ...

Hard tiller steering Cal 36

It was very hard to hold it straight at all and harder still to turn to stbd. The tiller is stiff and I attribute that to dirt, possible corrosion in the tube and shaft from sitting in the water for...

Hard tiller steering Cal 36

We had our Cal 36 out of the slip for the first time today. Unplanned trip because we had to move to a marina across the bay. I've been working all winter in the slip to get ready for a move or a...

Re: Yanmar GM30 Hard to start

I'm still getting the feel of my new-to-me 3gm30f. In the winter when temps were in the 40's during the day it was full throttle to start her. Now that it's warmed up to 50's-60's in the day it's...

Re: Cal cockpit drains

I finally got both drains clean with my shop vac. I should be able to keep them clear now. The drain lines were full of paint flakes and sand and hair from this boat just sitting for so long. It's...

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...

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...

glueing teflon

My understanding is that if it is glued, it is not teflon. I don't think anything sticks to it.

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?
