    New owner! First time out on the water

    I paid about $120 to have my main modified to add the reef point. I did it through Catalina Direct. It was pretty painless, just ship them the sail and about a week later it was returned. I'm glad I did it - it gave me some confidence to go single handed when I haven't before. I didn't...

    New owner! First time out on the water

    Thanks, this is great information. I found on Newports website that 46lb thrust is equal to 0.64HP. So the 2.4HP outboard will be a significant increase, which aligns with your experience of rarely needing more than 1/4 or 1/2 throttle. In Lake Tahoe, the conditions change on a dime, and...

    New owner! First time out on the water

    I've been looking at the Honda 2.3 and the Yamaha. With my 46lb electric, the max speed I could get is only about 3.5mph and that's on smooth water. I was hoping to put a gas outboard on so I can reposition the boat quickly to other parts of the lake to find better wind conditions. The...

    New owner! First time out on the water

    I just converted mine from the hank-on style jib/forestay to the rolling furler and the jib with integrated forestay. It's set up exactly like yours is.. no jib halyard. The upper pennant attaches directly to the mast tang with a shroud adjuster. However I found it a bit tricky to step...

    Looking to buy a Capri 14.2 - need some advice

    I took my first sailing class at SEA up in the Richardson Bay area. They used 16.5's. Fleet. We reefed the main several times on gusty days. I would agree with you the 14.2 is too small. The 16.5 will work great for your family of 4. The extra few feet makes a big difference in cockpit...

    Looking to buy a Capri 14.2 - need some advice

    Kerrcat14.2K, would you have some pictures you could share of how you have your jiffy reefing setup. I just got my sail back from the loft where they added reef points and need to figure out how to rig it.

    Rudder/Tiller/Extension for sale

    I have a rudder/tiller/tiller extension for sale from a 2004 14.2. It was misplaced, a new one ordered for the boat so we could make our vacation trip, then found after the fact. So I'm selling the original one and keeping the new one. The new one cost me $580 after tax and shipping. So...

    Sailing on Lake Tahoe

    Just got back from a few weeks with having a new to me 2004 Mod 3 14.2 at Lake Tahoe. I made a few modification before the trip, mostly based on posts I have seen here. All of which I was very glad I did- 1) Installed a Hobie Baby Bob for extra piece of mind to not turtle. We actually had...
