    Capri 14.2, mast spreaders

    I have two sets of spreaders( I don't have the lengths at hand to measure). In principle, which is best ? a longer spreader or a shorter one. Does it matter? Both are OEM by Catalina. Thanks for comments! Barry

    Improvement Pictures #1

    i have found a way simular tothe above method, which holds holds the main sheet and the boom to the center of the boat; and allows for an adjustable traveler which which allows the main sheet/boom to move to lee ward in high wind. If any one is interested I try to post a picture.

    Small outboard motors on Capri 14.2

    Re: ladder on Capri 14.2. There is no need to cut port holes, or access holes, in a Capri Inorder to add a ladder. It can be done by simply by bolting thru, using expanding foam, and bracing plates. The less holes the better, and the smaller holes the better. Bdh333

    Small outboard motors on Capri 14.2

    I use a 30lb, Minn Kota electric motor, 12 volt battery whichisin the cubby and modified auto jumper cables to connect the two. Battery weight in the bow helps balance the boat. Bdh333

    Small outboard motors on Capri 14.2

    I have a Minkota 30, I keep the battery in the cubby and used heavy duty bumper cables which run from cubby to motor mounted on the transom. I used proper connections at the battery, and a plug at the motor. Simple and has been trouble free. Barry

    The Greg Coats boarding ladder installation

    I have mounted a ladder with three bolts and backing and without the need to drill a large porthole for access. It has worked fine for two years. The less holes in a boat the better. Barry havens

    Installing a Tiller Tamer, few questions...

    All good ideas, I don't like to drill in the hull so I just put the traveler on the existing holes at the tran some with a bowline knots and then clip the ends of the tiller tamer line on two the bowline loops. Works fine. Barry
