Center of transom measures 19" from bottom to top of deck.
My top mount hole is 2-3/4" below top of deck,
bottom mount hole is 6" below top of deck.
Not sure about the water line measurement.
No stain present, as the boat lives on a trailer.
I removed my mount and forget...
Fuse for Trolling Motor
I agree, you won't be shocked in the event of a capsize.
But... You need to protect your battery and wiring.
A fuse SHOULD be installed as close as possible to the
POSITIVE post of your battery. The fuse protects the wiring
and the battery from overheating in the...
i haven't had this trailer on any long-distance trips
since changing the tires over to the 12", but was
quite happy with the way the tires performed when
they were on the other trailer toting a DN iceboat
around Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. The trailer
pulled so easily you...
I did just what you are asking with my Sprint trailer.
I have a second trailer tht I had rebuilt a few years
ago that had nearly new tires on it. The trailer that
came under my Capri had really old, cracked 8"
tires on it, so I swapped the tires and rims between
With slight disrespect, being a mechanically competent person,
when one of Catalina's shrouds fails (and it, too, eventually will) the
mast will come down and you will need to order another shroud and
wait for it to be built and shipped. Also plan on waiting 3-4 weeks on
I made my own shrouds, and went with the suggested 15' 3-1/4" as you
saw in the Capri Manual. I figured if there was a maximum length per
class rules, there must be a reason for it.
If you have read through a lot of the posts here, you might have seen
that I bought a...
Getting Back In Your Capri
I saw a post somewhere on here describing a simple rope step
to get in over the transom of the Capri. I hadn't thought of how
much higher it is than my Laser. The first time I launched from
shore I would have been in trouble without it, as I was in
I used laundry detergent and Oxi-Clean on my sail and it worked wonders.
The toughest part was scrubbing every square inch (on both sides)with a
nylon-bristled, iron-shaped brush in the bathtub. (Not recommended.)
It took me about 1-1/2 hours leaning over the edge of the tub to...
Upper Batten Dimensions
My Capri 14.2 has a "Capri Sails" sail.
The upper batten measures:
5/8" wide x 18" long x 1/16" thick.
You might check with Catalina Sails to see if they can help, but you should
be able to measure the remaining two battens and come up with the width
Support for Mast During Setup
I have a piece of rounded (cross section) wood with
two bent-over (90 degree) threaded steel pins spaced
to be inserted in the rudder gudgeons during setup
and teardown. The oversized dowel is approx. 2" in
diameter, 30" long and has a padded, round, steel...
Clevis Pins and Rings
Larger clevis rings arrived today, and should do nicely.
I couldn't make it to Goshen, but since my Mrs. works
downtown Goshen, she stopped by Fastenal during her
lunch hour and picked them up. Part#11104135 $.33 ea
I installed the rings tonight and taped them so the...
