    1988 Capri 14.2 Sailboat - $1850 (Ashburn, VA)

    For Sale is my 1988 Mod I Capri 14.2 Sailboat. I purchased this boat last year in Virginia Beach and had a blast taking it out on the Potomac River near DC with the family. There are no issues and sails great! The trailer is a Performance trailer and is in great shape too. All rigging is...

    Water Bottle Holder

    When my wife and I took the boat out a few weekends ago we discovered that there was no place to put our water bottles after pulling them out of the cooler that was located in the hatch. It wasn't convenient going in and out of the hatch while on the water, and they seemed to get in the way...

    Hobie Baby Bob Mount

    Centering It @ Woodbark - I was really just trying to come up with a mount that didn't require a whole lot of extra modifications. Centering it would make it look better, but I also liked the idea of leaving the back holes available to add a bolt/block for future use.

    Hobie Baby Bob Mount

    After reading several posts regarding the benefits of adding a Hobie Baby Bob to the top of the mast, I decided to mount one myself.

    Cracking Hull

    Internal Cracks Hi, I was wondering the same thing. I don't see any external cracks, but when inspecting the internal hull I notice that there were some cracks running down where the roller is on the trailer. The boat doesn't leak a drop of water, but I'm wandering if I need to repair the...

    Replacement Hiking Straps

    Cam Straps I just recently purchased an old 1988 Capri 14.2. The boat is in great conditiong and I couldn't be happier with my purchase, but the hiking straps were completely shot. I was digging around the garage and came across an old tie down winch strap that is 2 inches wide. It looks...
