    Rigging

    I've got a rigging question for a 1986 Catalina Capri 14.2. There are 4 wires attached to the mast. One goes to the front of the boat and is used for the jib. This wire goes up the mast about 3/4 of the way and attaches on the front of the mast. Two wires go down through the...

    Any Chesapeake 14.2 sailor here?

    Refinishing Tiller and Rudder

    Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing you are probably right. It appear that it is a gel coat on top of some sort of wood, possibly particle board. What do you mean when you say it's hard to match the gel coat? Are you talking about the color? What if I just sand it all off and then re-gel...

    Refinishing Tiller and Rudder

    Hello, I recently purchased a 1986 capri 14.2. It's in pretty good shape, and I got a great deal on it. Right now I'm working on refinishing the tiller and the rudder. I just finished sanding and varnishing the tiller and it looks like new. Next up I want to sand and paint the rudder...
