My wife and I recently acquired a 1974 Cal 2-29. I grew up sailing small mono hull and catamarans. My wife has taken a local week long sailing course using Thunderbirds. We had our first solo sail on the boat and had a great sail. Plenty to learn and practice on this boat.
We are in the process of cleaning, learning and preparing the boat. We just had the Power Squadron do a Vessel Safety Check and we couldn't find the "Capacity/Certificate of Compliance" plaque. Does anyone know where it is located on a Cal 2-29?

I wouldn't expect a dinghy-like capacity plate on a Cal 29... You'll be lucky to find a builder's plate or possibly even an HIN.

Great boat for what you're doing! Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the welcome. The boat has a HIN number, but I don't know or have not found the certificate of compliance plaque. Does anyone know when the USCG started requiring those plaques on boats?

As Faster mentioned Capacity Plates are only required on powered vessels less than a certain length (26 ft. ???). Catalina mounts a small metal "Builders Plaque" on the outside companionway threshold that has model and hull numbers and states "This vessel conforms to ABYC standards" Blah, blah, blah. This is closest thing I can think of to a "certificate of compliance" plaque. Other builders place them inside companionway and other places.
Now, I really can't remember if Cals (or any boats) in the 70's had such plaques, but I'm doubtful.
