    1990 Capri 14.2 Refit

    Thanks for the interest! I am planning to leave it in the water for about half of the year so bottom paint is necessary.

After a thorough look over I decided that with a little sweat and elbow grease I could make it into a perfect little day sailer to rip around...

    Continuing rigging saga
