    New Capri owner, anchoring question

    If your boat takes on water I would say its coming from a crack or small hole or its coming in through the seam where the bottom hull is attached to the deck. Not through the drain plug. I just bought a Capri and the previous Owner kept it all summer in a lake. Now I need to flip it over and...

    Recommendation for Dock

    The deck boards on our dock are 2 x 6 treated pine. It has been stained many times. In years past it was stained with a oil based stain but now the last time we stained it we had to switch over to a quality water based stain. I probably will need 10 gallons. We stain about every 3 years just to...

    How do I Install Foam Below Deck?

    I have a Mod 3 Capri 14.2 in fair shape. I am not the first owner and even when I got it about 4 years ago the bottom was a bit soft in the rear starboard side. This year it is noticeably worse and the bottom even sits on the trailer crooked as the soft spot deflect upward where it sits on the...

    Getting Water in My Hull

    I have a Mod 3 Capri. When I go on vacation up to Wisconsin I sail hard and keep my Capri in the water for a week. We have a blast sailing on the big waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. My problem is that the boat will slowly take on water to the point where by the end of the week I may...

    Transporting and Storing

    Aft Mast Crutch I bought an Aft Mast Stand from Annapolis Performance Sailing. I highly recommend this addition to your Capri. It slips right in to the rudder brackets and securely supports the mast up off the boat. You can make something that will work, but if you prefer to spend your time...

    Replacement Hiking Straps

    Hiking Straps Not that familar with the Omega, but assume it is like my Capri. I bought straps recently from Masthead Enterprises and paid $75 plus shipping. Catalina's were more expensive; I am sure you could make some very functional ones for a lot less. I ran out of time and bought a set of...

    Replacing the Running Rigging

    As part of my spring tune-up for my Mod 3 Capri 14.2 I plan on replacing all the running rigging. I know the C14 Handbook has some recomendations for this, but I was hoping someone had done this recently and could offer advice on line type, length and diameter. Also where they bought it...

    Long Shaft or Short Shaft?

    I am going to buy an outboard motor for my Capri 14.2 to get me out on to the lake. Will a short shaft motor work or do I need to get the long shaft? I have been able to find a couple of short shafts for sale but no long shafts. Any recomendations? Anyone got a suitable motor they want to sell?
