    Expo 14.2 turtling

    Here are the instructions, and some photographs courtesy of Tom, above: I used standard 3/4 inch oak. Pine board would not have the strength for the job and small oak boards are readily available at any home improvement or builder's supply store for less than $10. 1. I made a paper template...

    Tom, I just sent you an email. I'd be happy to post your photos for you. Thanks for sharing how you rigged yours up. Doug, that's an interesting float "sleeve." I haven't seen that before. I wonder who makes that, and if there's any significant loss of performance since it looks like it...

    Just a funny update... my friends who own the goat dairy ranch told me that their goat, Pixie, was bred yesterday, and after learning of our decision to name our boat after her, they are going to name Pixie's kid "Dinghy."

    Reading another thread on Hull # identification, since my HIN # is: CPSD5400E910 I believe that means my hull is # 5400, and was built in May of 2009, and is a 2010 year model.

    Greg, I actually picked up the boat yesterday (Saturday). I would have loved to have met up with you. This week was a busy one for me at work (we were actually shooting on an 85 foot auxiliary ketch for several days out of San Pedro), so I didn't have a lot of time to plan out and organize...

    I live in Pasadena. The Capri I bought is currently in Channel Islands Harbor. I will probably keep it at a marina in either Marina Del Rey or possibly Cabrillo. I'm heading up to Channel Islands Harbor today.

    Greg, thank you for the detailed instructions on raising the mast solo. I think I understand the process by your very thorough description. If I have any questions, I will get in touch. Fortunately, I have my wife with me the first time, so I have another set of hands, which should help to...

    I have been looking for a used Capri 14.2 for a few months now, and today I won an eBay auction for a 2010 Capri 14.2. I'm thrilled, and look forward to picking up the boat this weekend, and getting to work on getting her back to 100%. I know I will need a new jib for sure, and I am guessing...
