    Centerboard dropping while launching or trailering (solution)

    I replaced the bottom gasket on my Mod 1 last summer. It was the original from the ' 80's so I found that most of the screws holding the hard plastic bracket were rusted and stuck very hard in place. Use WD-40 or something like that a day or so before attempting to get those screws out if your...

    Centerboard dropping while launching or trailering (solution)

    I did pretty much the same thing for the same problem. I drilled a 3/8 inch hole at the highest lift of the centerboard even with the deck and used a prong from an old manure fork (common plastic fork in a horse barn), which is tappered. I shove the prong through the hole wedging it in tight...

    need tiller

    You might want to get a Baby Bob mast float so that you will never capsize again. With the float the boat will only stand on it's side. Go to page two of the Capri 14.2 forum and scroll down to "Expo 14.2 turtling" On that page I have sent complete instructions of one way to attach it to the...

    need tiller

    Looking at the parts list, I would think that you would have to get the kick up head and other metal parts from them, but $120 - $130 for a tiller and extension sounds a little rediculous. A simple 2x2 from Lowe's would cost, what, $5? Round out the shaft with a knife and sanding (or a friend...

    Just bought a used '85... need manual or rigging pics

    Tim, scroll down on pages 1 and 2 of this forum and you will find a lot of info posted to questions about re-fitting a Capri, restoring an older 14.2, and lots of other tips on the best mounting and motor to have on board. An oar on board isn't going to do you much good, however, I suppose it...

    Bob, Thank you for your note. I am sorry to have delayed a response. I only saw your message this morning as I was thinking that since the weather was getting so nice perhaps there are new threads coming up on this site. I still have some minor jobs to finish on my boat before getting it into...

    A new Capri 14.2 owner

    Guys, I have been meaning to write and mention that Anthony received the photo's and plans for my gig to attach the Baby Bob to a Capri 14.2 mast, and that they have been posted. They are posted, however, in the "Expo Turtling" thread in this forum. I would like your opinions on my idea...

    Expo 14.2 turtling

    I have photo's and instructions for attaching a Baby Bob to the Catalina masts with clean lines and very little trouble. Other methods have been posted in the past but this design does not have a metal bracket being bolted to the mast head and setting the float off-center. I am not able to post...

    A new Capri 14.2 owner

    Anthony, Thank you for posting the detailed pictures of your boat. I just got this one in Oct. and it is my first sailboat. 1985 Catalina Capri 14.2 sailboat for sale in Virginia I liked seeing that the newer models have not changed that much from my older one. I was wondering if...

    Small outboard motors on Capri 14.2

    I have ordered the power center and the same battery. I always have a full charge in my phone when going out anywhere and also have a phone charger to use in my Ram. However, it's nice to know that I could use the power center for that too. I have had all the bells and whistles disconnected...
