    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and had a question for other cal 2-46 owners. My family and I have been cruising on our 1974 cal 2-46 for the past year and a half and just finished a 10 day passage from Portland Oregon to Ensenada MX. On the way down I noticed a bad vibration when surfing down...

    Years ago I installed a Simplified Marine Technologies APA Adaptor H5 to mount cone zincs on my Autoprop. It worked as advertised with no issues. I now need to remove it in order to pull the prop. The company is out of business and I cannot find any documentation. My first impulse was to use a...

    The prop on our C&C 27 is not turning. We documented it in a youtube video: youtube.com/watch?v=Pxl4-ZhUdvc (You have to copy and paste the link because I can't post a link because I'm too new here. I promise it's not spam or anything nefarious.) It's a folding prop, as you can vaguely tell...

    I own an Ericson 32 that had a two blade prop and over the winter I changed it for a 3 blade and now I only get max RPM's in Neutral and Reverse. In forward I only get just a little more than idle RPM's any idea what my problem might be? Thanks

  6. Maintenance/How-to Videos
    Here's a video we made with our GoPro camera. We wanted to take a look to see how bad the bottom looked before we cleaned it. What we saw when we popped the SD card into the laptop was a surprise! We just took an old boat hook, by the way, and a little bit of drilling here, a couple of screws...
  7. Gear & Maintenance
    The other day, Chris was messing around with our GoPro camera and in mad-scientist fashion, devised a mount for the camera at the end of an old boat hook pole so he could stick it underwater to see how our bottom looked. What we saw when we popped the card into the laptop and hit play...
  8. Gear & Maintenance
    Another newbie question possibly. After a complete tune-up and unfortunately close to two months at the dock with 70+ degree waters, i found we could barely move, presumablt due to barnacle build up on the prop and shaft. I donned a mask and gloves and cleared the prop and some of the shaft...
