    Did you still need these? I have no use for them and would hate for someone to do without.

    For Sale: Capri Centerboard Gasket Set

    Hi - those were sold last February but since then I found a brand new set that my brother had purchased and never told me. The ones back then were "gently used" and were just the gasket. These also have the plastic strips that go over them. I'd be glad to sell you them for $40 plus whatever it...

    Capri OMEGA 14: Need information for this model

    Thanks, Jim, great stuff! My experience is with large keel boats so very helpful. Have you any info re using the trailer winch to raise the mast? I just sprained my back <again> stepping it up. I was thinking maybe a temporary spreader between the mast and forestay to increase the angle of...

    Jim, thanks for the reply and info re twist. Just one thing, you mentioned to never let go of the mainsheet. I let the sheet out when heeling is too extreme - could you expand on your comment? Thanks again!

    Capri OMEGA 14: Need information for this model

    Jim, Thanks for the post. The drawing was very well done. Couple of questions for you if you have the time... 1. Why did you fix the traveler? 2. Still haven't been able to get mine in the water for our first sail. Wondering just how stable the boat is and how many people you've had in it...

    Slot seal strips for swing keel

    Charley, thanks again for the info. Unfortunately I'm not that lucky re the tree! I'm going to try and rig a pulley system in the garage. You gave me an idea as to where to attach the sling(s). I'm going to try and figure out a point(s) where, once raised high enough, the whole boat can be...

    Curious how you got the boat upside down on the saw horses? I need to do that and wondering the best approach. I will have to do this alone.

    Slot seal strips for swing keel

    Thanks for the update, Charley. I've made progress towards getting my new purchase in shape. About to add the shock cord centerboard system recommended by Cat Direct , the Hobie Baby Bob float on the mast, and a boarding ladder on the transom. I think that will be it for this season. Anxious...
