    Stern Cleats

    My Capri has stern cleats installed in the traditional places on the gunwale. Down here a lot of boats are kept tied up on docks on the various lakes so cleats are practically a necessity. They do snag the traveler on occasion, so if i were racing, I'd probably not want them there.

    Georgia members? Alabama? Carolinas?

    Capri fenders Dragonfly - I have a set of the "low freeboard" fenders you're welcome to borrow. If I were ging to buy a set, I'd buy the flat ones that fold in the middle, but the round "low freeboard" ones work OK.

    Another ATL area Capri I'm in the East Cobb area -- had the boat at a slip at Sunrise Cove (Lake Lanier) last year -- never even got a chance to get it into the water this year. I've heard that Lanier is 7-8 feet down and a couple of the ramps I checked out were not usable -- the concrete ramp...

    How stable is this thing?

    C14 stability It's small, light and carries a lot of sail area -- it WILL go over if there's enough wind. :-) Then, so will just about anything if there's enough wind. :-) Lots of roller jibs, but reef points in the mainsail don't seem to be that common on the C14's that I've seen and I'm...

    Recommendation for replacement sheets

    I think that on the jib sheets, the thinner line would make it easier to clear the cam cleats and run free and that would make tacking easier and quicker

    I'm on top of the world!!!!

    Capri 14.2 on Lake Lanier I'll be out there sometime soon I hope! That's if the weather ever warms up enough so I can flp her over and paint the bottom. A friend has a dock and he's offered to let me keep my boat in the water on his dock for the summer. Sure beats trailering -- now all I...

    question about fiberglass repair

    I pciked up my Capri from a friend who used it for some frostbiting. He told me that while it was moored at his dock the bow painter "let go" and the stern rubbed up against the metal dock. I was expecting a few scrapes. Attached is a picture of what I found when I got the boat trailered and...

    Mod 3 hatch replacement

    Tempress Hatch doesn't fit Dang - The Tempress hatch doesn't fit -- the overall size is right, but the flanges are wider and the opening smaller. The pre-drilled screw holes don't reach the fiberglas on teh top edge. Oh well, at least it wasn't expensive and since I never installed it...

    Mod 3 hatch replacement

    New Mod 3's have different hatches than old ones I took my mainsail up to the local sailing center to have reef points put in and thee was a new Capri 14.2 in the yard. The new ones use the new Bomar access hatch which appears slightly larger and does open 180 degrees. On the Pompanette...

    Where to get C14 parts?

    The Catalina Direct site seems to be only for C22 and up. Are they not carrying C14 parts any more?
