    1989 Capri 14.2 for sale in Wisconsin

    Still available Think spring, and be ready with this nice Capri 14.2. Would be a great boat for someone in the Upper Great Lakes, such as the Twin Cities or the Madison area, and both are possible delivery zones.

    Hey everybody :)

    Not a bad bit of sailing for a vacation, really, Kim. My free days last summer usually were stormy or dead calm. In our newbie mode, my wife and I have also employed the technique of only using the main and have had fun with minimal confusion and concern. On the weather front, things have...

    Great Lakes Capri Association

    There are some of us in Wisconsin, too I know of at least two other Capri 14.2 owners here in Wisconsin -- in fact they both checked into the site last spring, both in the Madison area. While getting to Sandusky on any kind of regular basis would make it hard for me to be part of a "fleet,"...

    Capsize

    See, I knew someone here would have more experience with a swim noodle than me. Thanks for the input, endkaos! Larry, there is an adapter that I saw in the APS catalog -- the Davis Universal Masthead Mount -- that extends a Windex 15 or Sport 10 away from masthead obstructions. Might allow...

    Considering Capri 14.2 for family of 5

    As most advice that I've seen on this forum is that the Capri 14 likes to be sailed flat and that it is somewhat "overcanvassed," then I'd tend to think Jimbot's and Jack's comments are pretty valid -- the extra weight would contribute to a milder performance for the boat. However, I'd also...

    Capsize

    Just a thought... Prior to resealing the mast with expandable foam, as I think it may be time to do so with my '89 Model 2, would it be of any benefit to bouyancy beyond the trapped air to insert a couple of those foam swim noodles into the mast?
