    Trailer Recommendations for Capri 14.2?

    Thanks for the reply. I could not find any used options so I ended up contacting a Catalina dealer who sells the Expo 14.2 (same hull) and he set me up with a new Load Rite trailer which I picked up directly at their nearby factory.

    Trailer Recommendations for Capri 14.2?

    Put my new to me 1989 Capri 14.2 at my slip space at Lake Nockamixon (PA) last Friday. On the way home, a monster pickup drove over my Shoreland’r trailer while I was stopped at a light. Could be worse since my boat was thankfully still at the lake. Most marine dealers in my area are not...

    Baby Bob installed with just a drill!!!

    Hi Pat Thanks for posting the photos of your Baby Bob project. I am assuming you mounted the bracket back to the baby bob using the float's existing holes and screws. Is that correct?

    Should there be a gasket on the drain plug?

    A Draining Question

    Thanks guys for your replies. I had not seen a14.2 in person and I did not want to make a 12 hr round trip to Lake George, NY to purchase a boat that souded very promising unless it was feasible to keep it in a slip most of the time. The transom plug from my old daysalor that I use to remove...

    A Draining Question

    I am planning on buying a 1989 14.2 this weekend but I have rain water concerns. I will be keeping the boat in the water at a dock slip at a state park. The boat may go unattended for a couple of weeks at a time and need to know if rain water will self drain if I remove the transom plug. I had...
