    Sail Repair

    Kitefix Repair Tape I ordered the Kitefix Fiberfix--it's for kiteboarder's "kites" (that are like parachutes). The Kitefix Fiberfix came with seven colors of tape, but I had to order the"mini repair kit" that contains the gluefix that adheres the tape to the sail. (the mini repair kit only...

    Replacement Hiking Straps

    As a new (and impatient) 14.2 owner, I went with Catalina Direct for my hiking straps. I have to say that Catalina Direct is awesome and very responsive (I've left messages for a couple of parts and they've always gotten back to me the same day). You can get one of two colors for the hiking...

    Picture of Canvas Hatch Cover for Mod2

    No Kidding! We took "Snazzy Blue" out for our maiden voyage last weekend and I was amazed by the abundance of rope in the boat! I had ordered some great velcro ties for the shrouds and ropes for transport and used them in every conceivable way to hold bowline, halyards, etc out of our...

    Picture of Canvas Hatch Cover for Mod2

    Fabulous! That is exactly what I needed!!! I'm taking the pictures and my boat to the fabricators on my lunchbreak today. I may add a net pouch on the outside...and I knew the extra carabiners I bought would come in handy!

    Picture of Canvas Hatch Cover for Mod2

    Somewhere on this forum I saw a picture of the snap-on canvas cuddy cover for a Mod2 Capri 14.2. I have looked for two days and cannot find it. I ran across it on an unrelated thread and, if I remember correctly, it was a post from 2006. If anyone can find that post and direct me to it, or if...

    Sail Repair

    I'm wondering if anyone has used Sailfix to repair their sails? I have a red sail and am looking to try to make the most-permanent fix that I can that matches my sail color. If anyone has had success with any product, I would like to know what it is and where you got it! Thanks!

    Replacing the Running Rigging

    I went to West Marine and the sailboat section looked like it had been looted! The sail repair kit they had was for sewing repairs. So, I looked at WM online and only saw white sail repair tape. I may have to go with a white patch (on the red portion of my sail). Can I get creative (a...

    Replacing the Running Rigging

    You were right--ended up with everything I need and after a thorough inspection--tightened all of the screws and noted all the bent parts and ropes that need replacement. We stepped up the mast and raised the main and jib sails (and took pictures)--very pretty boat (red, white and blue...

    Replacing the Running Rigging

    Even if it has sat unused for a long time? The boat was sailed long, long ago (in the 90s) and hasn't been sailed since. When I read "What to consider when buying a Capri", it suggested replacing the rigging if it was "older." Just looking at the connections, some are bent, cotter pins rusted...

    Replacing the Running Rigging

    Copy of Order for Rigging Mark, Just bought a '92 Capri and all rigging is in disarray--can you send me a copy of what you ordered and from whom? If you've just gone through all of the rigamarole, I rather save some time, borrow your research and get set for sailing! I'm in a...
