Re: Cal 21 Owners

Well after trying to resurrect the Ted Williams 7.5 hp that was a no go, I bough a Nissan 9.9. Took the boat out on the Lake yesterday. Had good winds and a lot of fun. My question is how do I release the chain from the keel and then how do I reattach it. I sailed for 3 hours, got a sunburn and had the winch in place the whole time.
I'm thinking of using a D shackle to release the chain from the winch, attaching it to the inner side of the opening where keel rises up to.
Anybody have any better ideas?
