    Mod 2 Capri Cuddy -Storage Bin- FREE !!

    I removed the cuddy/ front storage bin from my boat for mast support repairs. After gaining a ton of front storage space and no room after supporting the mast step, I have no use for this bin. I fabricated a door instead. This thing is huge, and I don't want it anymore. I really don't want to...

    New Cuddy Door Pictures - Remove storage bin

    I only built (using pressure treated decking) a new mast support, and bolted it to the existing vertical plywood pieces in the boat. My mast support was cracked badly on the outside and the wood support underneath had cracked and rotted. I plan to remove the 2x3 pieces in the top corners and use...

    New Cuddy Door Pictures - Remove storage bin

    I finally got the boat in the water this weekend, minus the sails and mast. I must say, having all that space in the front of the boat is very nice. I will add some inside pictures soon. I am thinking I need some kind of small chain or something so it catches the door when I open it. But it fits...

    New Cuddy Door Pictures - Remove storage bin

    The main reason I removed the storage bin in my boat (mod 2) was because the bow eye was literally falling out of the boat, and the canvas cover had seen better days. I also needed to rebuild some type of mast support as the original had cracked and rotted. After breaking the silicone seal I...

    Repair of structural supports inside cabin

    I can't speak for your boat, and I haven't had mine that long, but mine is the exact same way. The pathetic pieces of fiberglass are kinda useless to hold the plywood in there. I also had issues with the mast support so I re-enforced everything and basically built a brace to hold the mast and...

    off topic -- Sailing Solo from RI to GA

    No one else has said anything here so I will...thanks for this intriguing story. I can't imagine doing that myself...a 30ft is a good size but on the ocean by yourself, yikes. I hope he makes it ok, keep up with the updates. Thanks

    Hatch cover for 14.2?

    I am also hoping that by adding foam inside the top of the mast that the only water I will have to keep out is waves and the rain...not keeping out the entire lake. Turtling=bad...which leads me to another question--I want/need to get an outboard for my boat. But if I tip the boat over by...
