    Question  Replacement spreader and bracket

    I have a 1990 and am replacing my spreaders, brackets and shrouds. Has anyone done this? If so, how/where did you drill the new bracket holes. I’m finding I can use one of the original bracket holes, but will go a little higher for the other 3 holes. Any experience input would be appreciated.

    Small outboard motors on Capri 14.2

    Did you get the answer to this? I also just bought a motor mount from CD, but also uncomfortable drilling holes in the transom. It's hard to get anyone interested in doing small repairs/updates.

    Lowering mast on Capri 14.2

    Good points and good idea. I was thinking of using a hand winch attached to the trailer to crank it up or down. I know many taller people can raise and lower the mast with no issue, but i'm on the shorter side. Thanks again for your reply. Very helpful!

    Haven't picked up my boat yet, but I will need to check that out when I do. I can see how this would be an issue when rigging solo.

    Getting ready to purchase a 14.2. Stepping the mast seems doable, but not sure about lowering the mast. What techniques do 14.2 owners out there use?

    I had a great call with Jeff at Lynn Sailboats in Houston. He has new Expos and is very informative. I'm looking to pay a bit less, if I can, so I will hold off on a new one for now.

    Catalina Expo 12.5 Owner Reviews/Opinions

    Does anyone have experience sailing one of these? I like the simplicity, but are they too slow. I'm not into racing, just cruising. Not many videos on YouTube or real owner reviews on the internet.
