    Capri/Catalina 14 Mod 2

    I am considering buying a Capri 14.2 and saw a recent ad for a Mod 2. Setting aside the cost savings on a used boat what do I give up by buying a Mod 2 compared to a later or new model? Peter

    Capri/Catalina 14.2 I am following up on your ad in the Capri/Catalina Forum. What more can you tel me about the condition of the boat and sails? Do you have other pictures? What is your asking price? Where are you located if I wanted to see the boat? Peter Barrett

    Considering the Purchase of a Capri 14.2

    Capri/Catalina 14.2 I have sailed small boats and cruising boats all my life but bought a V-15 a few years ago with the idea of using it to teach my grandkids to sail. While I have had fun with the boat it is too quick,wet and unstable for inexperienced sailors. As a result I am considering and...

    Thanks for your comments. Anthony, your points are those that cause me to lean towards the roller furling rig. Peter

    Jib cover

    Patrick. In thinking further about your comments I have begun to wonder about whether to get the roller furling jib at all. I intend to store the boat on a dock in fresh water and don't plan to class race her. As I said my intention was to leave the furled jib up but even with a cover it may be...

    Jib cover

    Thanks for your advice and I agree with you as that is the way I handle the sails on my present boat. A roller furled jib however presents some different issues in as much as the boat will stay rigged on the dock at the lake. Peter

    Jib cover

    In ordering a new Capri 14.2 the roller furling jib comes with a dark colored leech in lieu of a sail cover. I plan to store my boat on a float all year and am concerned about deterioration of the sail. I have seen a 14.2 with a sleeve as a cover that is raised with a halyard. Do I need one...

    Hull number puzzle, Ω 14

    Hull Number Jim: I was looking at a Capri 14.2 on the dock and wanted to find out when it was built. I e-mailed the transom plate info to Catalina Customer Service and was able to get the date. The reply came from a Kent Nelson (kent@catalinayachts.com). Peter

    "Topping Lift"

    Topping Lift Thanks. That helps as I have never seen one. What is the preferred way to rig a topping lift on a C14.2? Fixed at the top of the mast or fixed at the end of the boom? I can see pluses and minuses with either one. Peter

    "Topping Lift"

    Topping Lift Thanks, George but at the risk of seeming dense I still don't understand what a "Boomkicker" is. I am familiar with a boom crotch, usually a wooden stand on larger boats that supports the boom when the sails are furled but am not sure that's what you mean. I noted an earlier...

    "Topping Lift"

    Topping Lift What is a "Boomkicker"? I am considering putting a topping lift on a new boat as in my experience with other boats it helps when dropping the main and supporting the boat cover when the boat is moored on the dock. Is it commonly done on C14-2's? Peter

    Catalina 14.2 pricing

    Thanks for the Lake Union suggestion. I'll check it out. I missed one a few weeks ago on Craig's list in the Seattle area. A Capri 14.2 with trailer and outboard for $1000! I was the first caller, didn't go to see it right away and it sold the next day. From the pictures it looked good. Enjoy...

    No that price is for a standard jib rig. The Roller Furling option adds $245. We live in Bellevue, WA. Peter

    Catalina 14.2 pricing

    The current MSRP sheet that Catalina sent me lists the centerboard version at $5883. the sheet also lists the various option prices which I can give you if you want them. The local dealer is holding firm on that price. Peter
