    I sold my 14.2 today. =~[

    I know that has to be a bittersweet feeling Winston. You took real good care of that boat and the new owner is very lucky to have found it. I hope you stick around, I am confident that your next boat is out there and that you will find it eventually. Best of luck to you.

    Laser Pico wanted

    Greetings. This is not my ad but I saw your post while looking for Pico threads. The boat/trailer/dolly combo in the ad looks pretty good so I figured I should let you know!

    Coca Cola super snark 11ft

    This video is probably the coolest Snark video out there. A flock of Sunflowers out for a good time in Europe.

    Coca Cola super snark 11ft

    It really depends on the condition of the boat. Those boats have a surprising following and if the sail is in good condition, I would bet that someone would be very happy to have it. Cactus is right, they make great boats to learn on, as well as great boats to chill out on! The amazing thing is...

    Catalina Expo 14.2 Mast Install/Remove ..helps or tips

    Congrats to you on the Expo! That is going to be a blast. I don't have any first-hand experience with one but I did find this thread where the members were discussing stepping the mast. Hope it helps in some way!

    Looking to get into Sailing

    When I read your description, what jumped to my mind was the Catalina 14.2 Expo. My thoughts would be a roomy, stable boat that is easy to single-hand. Being that there is no jib with the Expo, it is far easier to single-hand than the 14.2 Capri. No jib also means fewer lines in the cockpit, and...

    I fear if I want to sail, I'm going to have to get a different boat.

    Well, those boats appeal to a unique group. Maybe it will still be there when things get better and you could find a trailer for it as well.

    Enough Of A Mast Float?

    Thanks to all. I will always be on the lookout for a way to improve it but it is good to know that this float will help and that as long as I don;t let the wind get too strong it will be good to go. Winston, yes I have seen where you have shown pics of the RS Quest float that you have. That...

    Enough Of A Mast Float?

    I know that this issue has been covered before and I have read the threads that discuss the usage of a mast float on the 14.2. That being said, I don't have the coin for a Baby Bob and have been exploring other options. I understand that a mast float is not a must have item and I have sailed...

    I fear if I want to sail, I'm going to have to get a different boat.

    Winston, I had to share this one with you. Hands free, forward facing sailing in a trimaran. That sounds like it might be something you were looking for! I know, East Coast and all but I thought you might find the boat interesting...

    What sailboat should I buy?

    I don't have a lot of experience relative to the others on this forum but I do spend a ton of time dreaming and looking at sailboats so what the heck. I have a Capri 14.2 currently. I think the boat has a world of excitement to offer. It can comfortably carry three adults, four if you are just...

    Western Mass but I would be happy to head down to Sharon and check it out! Thanks.

    Wow that would be fantastic. I am out in Western Ma but it's only an hour and a half to Sharon...

    Wow that would be fantastic. I am out in Western Ma but it's only an hour and a half to Sharon so that sounds like fun.

    The Sunfish Experience

    Thanks Clyde. As with aircraft, everything is a compromise with sailboats. More fun and less hassle is an attractive combination!

    The Sunfish Experience

    That's the clarification that I was hoping for. So while I would love to have a Sailfish just for the right conditions, I will keep my sights on a future Sunfish. Thanks Beldar.
