    Luff Wire for furling jib (2006 14.2) ...

    Thanks. I did talk with Catalina Direct about this and they contacted Catalina's sailmaker to see what they would recommend.

    Help with Centerboard Downhaul Attachment ...

    Thanks for all the replies. I checked my hiking strap bracket and it does have the hole on the front edge. So I ordered a new CB downhaul shock cord from Catalina Direct and will just connect it between the CB and that hole in the bracket. That should get everthing back to normal and I think...

    Wanted:  Capri 14.2 (2000 or later)

    Looking to purchase a used Capri 14.2 (2000 or later) in reasonably good shape (however I'd consider a project boat as long as the needed work isn't excessive). Sail condition is not an issue, I sew my own sails and am figuring I'll construct a new set before the spring. Good quality trailer...
