    Hobie Baby bob brackets | should I make some for you guys?

    I got my 1998 hull#4680 capri 14.2 late fall/early winter. Never sailed it yet. Ive seen a lot of posts regarding flotation and turtling. I am perfecting a baby bob bracket that bolts right on to my mast. Currently making my 4th version. The bracket uses the bolt on top of the mast that is for...

    New to me Catalina 14.2: See pic spreader travel movement seems off

    I am worried that the spreaders (or spreader bracket) will get bent when the mast is down like this and I am rigging the boat... This is the maximum travel the spreaders have. Are the spreaders supposed to have more travel? They can not go any more up than you see here in the picture. When the...

    New to me Capri 14.2

    Can I see some pics? I'd like to make sure I know what you mean when you say "collapsed". Sounds like its some strange kind of water dmg so far.

    Largest Safe Outboard

    Im in michigan, own a 1998 capri 14.2 mod3. I have a brand new yamaha 4hp motor (I believe its called the F4). Gets me going on the water fairly well. I'm here to say that yamaha is known to deliver good horse power in a light package. So if you are looking to save weight like I was, get a nice...

    What can I do to get these creases out of my jib? They look ugly and I wont sleep well until I get em out.

    James thank you for the tips! I am the proud owner of this boat (I'm 17 btw and I am on my 3rd sailboat!). I will not get a shakedown cruise in until the snow goes away here in Michigan(Febuary/March). This is my first boat with a roller furling jib and I appreciate all of your input and advice!

    Thanks will try. Just acquired this boat so it scared me when I rigged it for the 1st time in years and saw the creases. Boat is from 1998 and last time rigged/sailed was 2014.
