    Boom vang

    Hatch cover

    Modifications I'll see about going over to the inlaws where the boat is stored to take pictures. I used two brass hinges just above the hiking strap brackets. A piece of MDF composite cut to the shape(traced the bow box I removed) and a bracket pin style clasp. I've been debating for a while...

    Evaluating my 14.2

    Decking I will try to get a picture tomorrow, If I have time. I took two lengths of 2x2 and ran them fore and aft in the cuddy, I leveled them with blocking as best I could. I then ran 1x4" slats port to starboard. Had I thought of it, I should have varnished the wood, but It did not occur to...

I did a search on NADA boat Blue Book, however, under Catalina, the 14.2 isn't an available model until 2001. Based on my hull number and title...

    Halyard operation

    I just may do that... I spoke to SLO, and they can add teflon impregnated slugs to the mainsail. I was informed that in general, since its a small craft it wouldn't make much difference, but given the situation I explained to him, it may fit the bill. The cost seemed reasonable as well, I just...

    Replacement Hiking Straps

    Replaced last year Last year I got a quote for $99 plus shipping from CatalinaDirect. However, I ended up having a friend of a friend make some out of webbing, neoprene and a nylon outer shell. Overall, a set of three cost me about $90, so I only saved a little money.

    Halyard operation

    Hoisting sails The local sailing instruction course I took used a Flying Scott 16' sloop rigged boat. I'm not sure if its universal on their boats, but the main halyard was wire with a side mount hand winch. I really don't have any personal experience with its operation. The reason my better...
