Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

When used in conjunction with a boom vang, a traveler doesn't need to be very long, especially on a smaller boat. The traveler changes the sail's angle of attack without changing the sail's shape, and only needs to be long enough to take the pressure off the sail in the gusts, thereby reducing tiller pressure. If the gust is so strong that the traveler is insufficient to do that, then easing the mainsheet will do it. The boom vang will keep the boom from rising when you ease the mainsheet, preserving the shape of the sail.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

MG,

I understand why you would want to upgrade the traveler. Among other deficiencies, it will not bring the boom above the center line....maybe not even to the center line. It will not allow you to efficiently control twist in the sail. Its a great little boat, but the traveler is a weak point.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

I appreciate the feedback. Sorry I have not replied sooner. Work is getting in the way. I do not plan on being a big racer. Mainly going to do day sailing.
Traveler is a problem. I am still giving it some thought. The Catalina Capri mounts in the middle of the cockpit. Not sure I like that set up. I have seen a 27' boat with it on the cabin top. If I am sitting far enough forward it may be ok. I am going with a solid vang. Did anyone try the smaller garharger vang. If not what model have you installed.

He are some projects I started. Took the boom home and disassembled. Going install new sheaves and outhaul. Z-Spar has a great web page and all the hardware is available. Took the tiller home and stripped for refinishing. Took the forward hatch top home. Ordered be acrylic locally. I want to replace the gasket but lewmar does not make it any longer. I found a company that offers a replacement but it is not exact. It is about $50 for the replacement gasket and $75 for lense. It is a no brainier since it is completely disassembled. I plan on popping the frame up and reseating with 3m 4000.
Next big project is dropping the mast. I plan on new standing and running rigging. Install new light and windex. The mast looks to be great shape.
That is enough for now. Annapolis boat show just around the corner.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Hi folks,
Here is an update on my projects. Mast is down and wiring and lighting is complete. I tried to get some estimates on new standing rigging. Pricing from $440 to $900. It makes me wonder what could possibly be the difference for the big delta. I have boxed up my old rigging and will be shipping it out to rigger in New England to firm up the price. The original rigging hardware uses offsets tee fittings to fix the side stays to the mast. Those are not made any longer. Has anyone run into this?

The big project now are the blisters on the bottom. So many that I would call them poxs. They are 1/4-3/8 in size. After sanding the bottom paint off I was able to expose the extent of the problem. The only way to fix the properly is grind all the gelcoat down to the fiberglass matte. Big project. I am 4 days into the grinding. I figure 2 more days with the grinder then 2-3 days with a sander.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

I guess I will bump this one to the top.

I have a cal22, 1986 full keel. She is a speedy lil girl even in light winds. I am putting her up for sale because I just lucked into a Morgan 35. Iíll be sad to see the little boat go, but she has been good to me

Well after a little break, I am back on the project. The Blister project went well. Just hauled out after 1 year and not a single blister. Over the winter I learned how to do Gel coat repair and fixed all the crazing on the top side. Just lowered the mast to adjust my spreaders. When I originally install the new standing rigging, I set them to high. I did not realize the first time around but 5-10 deg up works well when you start tuning. Installed the a new Schaefer CF-500 SnapFurl. It was not as easy as the video. It is a two man operation and I was solo. Now it is time to order a new genoa. I am looking for feed back on a manageable size. I was thinking 115. I think a 130 was original. I will be sailing alone. Does anyone have any good feed back on size and sail maker?


My latest project is to install a solid vang. I hope to install this weekend.

One of the last major design upgrade will be the traveler. I am not sure what I will do.

Look forward to hearing from some owners that still monitoring the site.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Just bought 1985 Cal 22,just needs really good cleaning . Planning on docking at Battery Park Marina in Sandusky Ohio. I need a outboard for it, doing some research looking at 6 hp Evinrude and adding alternator to it. Any thoughts on what current owners are using hp size and reliability with there current outboards. Really looking forward to next spring and getting back under sail. I will have many questions on upgrades (knotmeter/depth sounder,soild vang,roller furling if my works or not). Thanks glad to be aboard.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

I sailed one back in the 1970's, that boat had a 3 1/2 hp Mercury long shaft, which was easily able to push that boat at hullspeed. It did not have an electric start or alternator, but was easy to put on and take off. We had a motorcycle battery for the running lights, depthsounder and knotmeter which we charged at the dock.

Without technical details, how do you add an alternator to an outboard?
