    Sailing Stories

    Bon voyage :cool: Just had to comment on a recent experience with my Capri that might get some smiles. I had just made the decision to sell my Capri in favor of something a bit larger (Daysailer or something). I decided to take it out for a final sail before the prospective buyers came to see...

    Just out of curiosity

    Thanks Thanks. That does help. It wasn't anything I was seriously considering. Just a thought that came to mind.

    Just out of curiosity

    During my first sail of the year in May, I inadvertently forgot to close the drain plug and found myself draining the boat for quite a while once on shore. Honestly, I didn't even know the boat could hold that much water and the weight was considerable. Has anyone ever sailed regularly with...

    Hi folks, I've been following some threads regarding the mounting of an outboard and I'm preparing to do so. I notice that several people have mounted motors on the port side of the transom rather than the starboard side. Is there any rationale for this?:confused:

    Tohatsu 3.5 hp: too much motor?

    Transom height

    Hi everyone. My boat's put away for the winter but I'm already thinking spring. I'm considering a small motor as a backup for when the wind dies out on Lake Ontario now and then. Does anyone know the height of the transom on the 14.2 off hand? What is the minimum shaft length that I could...

    Motor on your boat?

    Thanks Thanks for all of the feedback on the motors. I think I'm going to go with canoe paddles for now, but will consider all of this should they not be sufficient. Thanks again. :D Jason

    Motor on your boat?

    Hi, I'm trying to find out what people have on their Capri's as far as a motor (if any). I'm looking at maybe putting a small 2 hp outboard on it for getting in and out of port. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your feedback. Jason:)
