    how to fill the mast with foam

    Noodle in the mast? Is there a way to push/pull a series of the float noodles INSIDE the mast? I wonder if you could do it and if it would work as well or even closely to a Baby Bob. Looks like a warm winter day project for me. (as soon as the local stores have the noodles) I will let...

    A Vang .... thats what I'm missing .... Pepstuge, Do you have a list of the blocks you purchased to build a vang? In fixing the recent damage to my boat from its turtle expedition I just realized that there is and was no vang when I bought it. I contacted the previous owner and he didn't...

    Turtled on 29 July 06

    Dear Breathless ... I was very proud to say that I survived and got my boat back home. There were many lessons that I and others should learn from this and I'll think hard before going out again. The wind is not something to trifle with. Do you know that after all that I am missing my...

    Turtled on 29 July 06

    I've heard that there are two types of sailors - those that have capsized and those that will. On Saturday I moved to the "been there done that" - capsized category. Here in southwest Oklahoma I have sailed 4 times successfully on a fairly shallow lake with lots of dead trees. On Saturday...

    Thanks. Looks like my first major task is to seal the mast and then get ready for capsize drills. I'll look into fixing the base of the mast also. Steve Brockwell

    Capsizing, care of mast and a million other questions to follow

    Hello again. I have 2 questions or rather areas that I am concerned about with my Capri. 1. Is it easy enough for a lone sailor to right the Capri after capsizing? I've been thinking of a way to put a sealed hatch cover on to help keep the cuddy dry and watertight ... possibly helping to...

    Hello from New (to me) Capri owner

    Any information about rigging for single handed use will be appreciated. My dear wife doesn't like water much and would really rather stay on the shore. I need to be able to step the mast and rigging alone. Steve Brockwell
