Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Sweet! Congrat's on the boat.
I have a 4 1/2 Yamaha long shaft. More than enough for me. I was shopping around earlier looking at larger Honda's. $$$ I was able to get the one that came with boat repaired. I have a little more invested in the motor repair than I wanted. For now I am good. I have only been working on the boat. I have not sailed it yet. Target is the spring. I will only use the battery for Garmin speed and depth and a very occasional steaming light. A battery charge goes a long way. I will charge at the dock if needed. The boat came with a Yamaha rectifier. I have not used it to charge the battery. If you are going to need to charge frequently, you look at that option in lieu of an alternator.

I have a lot of projects planned and some major ones completed. Stay tuned.

Regards

If you check the specifications under most if not all 5/6 hp outboards, there is a dealer installed alternator option available. Most are 400 dollars part without installation .

I did some on-line searching regarding optional alternators that you suggested were available. All I can find is the 6 to 10 amp charging circuits which typically put out about 3 or 4 amps at cruising speed...this is hardly adequate for running even modest systems for any extended cruising. Is this what you are calling an alternator or is there something else? I don't see how a proper alternator could be mounted under an outboard cowling, that is why I asked the question.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Hey everyone,
Just resuscitating this thread to see who is still out there. I just bought my first boat, a 1986 Cal 22 and am interested in meeting others who own this boat. I have never seen another one out in the wild, and as others have noted, there is very little information on it on the web.
Would anyone be willing to post some pictures of how their reefing line is set up? I've read the rigging instructions in the owners manual over and over, but can't seem to quite figure out what to do with the line as it leads from the end of the boom on the starboard side up to the gooseneck. The manual refers to a D ring, which I'm guessing was supposed to have been installed on the luff cringle, but has long since disappeared off my original mainsail.

Thanks in advance.

Your sail should have a D ring forward and a reenforced hole towards the rear at the reefing point. The line runs up from the gooseneck to the Forward D ring and then back down to a pulley. Then back through a loop or two to the rear pulley. Then up through the hole and back down the port side to a loop. Tie a knot in the end of the line to secure. Mine has a couple pulleys on the deck and a cam lock near the cockpit so you can pull her down without having to go forward.

That's super helpful. Thank you. Searching around yesterday, I came across this low-friction ring setup that I'm guessing serves the same purpose as this D ring that I'm missing. Am I on the right track?

THat looks about right. My line goes through the hole your low friction ring is attached. Yours is probably a better set up

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Hello everyone,
I am looking for information on the Cal22. I am eyeing on an 85 model. I read different posts here and there but not much to find. Does anyone know more about construction quality and material used for deck and keel? Any info on boat behavior, weaknesses and performance would be appreciated as well.
Planning coastal cruising no racing.
Thank you.

I can't speak to the sailing performance of the boat, as I just bought mine in October and only got half a dozen light air sails in before the end of the season. However, I do have a scan of the original owner's manual for the 86 model, which has some info on construction methods, materials and other specs. Drop me a line if you want a copy. I can't post it here because PDF uploads are disabled and I can't even post a link to an external site because I'm a new member.

As far as I can tell the only wood in mine is the cabinetry. Mine is the full keel and itís got 500lbs of lead hung down low. With the furling jib and the reefing main you can sail her in just about anything, although she excels in light to moderate wind. Iíve got a lot of stress cracks in the deck but nothing that leaks or seems like a structural problem.

Over all, a fun little boat that sails fast for her size.
