Turns out the seller was wrong in his ad, the boat is NOT a Capri 14.2, but a 1977 Omega 14 with no foredeck, just open bow seating and wraparound cockpit benches. Not ideal for rough water, but may be pretty handy for fishing on Willapa River & Bay, once I strengthen the transom and pick up a small outboard. Leave the rig at home during fishing trips, maybe rig the beach umbrella aboard the boat while drifting and use sidearm casts, LOL. I'm gonna think about it a little while longer as I surf more boat ads, aye? Still, for $400 it's a pretty good deal, and I saw a small Evinrude motor for $125, thing's bulletproof... looks ancient, still runs like a top, LOL. Meh, we'll see, just wondering if anyone here owns an Omega 14... I used to sail the original Capri 14s in the mid-'70s, before some other company forced Catalina to change the name, and the original fixed-keel Capris didn't look like the Omega 14 or any Mod (1,2 or 3) of the Capri 14.2. As I recall, the original Capris had a foredeck, fairly narrow horizontal slot under the foredeck for stowage, and a sealed void below the slot for flotation. My memory may be fuzzy too, so much has happened since those halcyon days, LOL... those old Capris weren't bad boats either, though I favored the Lido 14s and eventually the Laser which I restored. Ah, well, I may still buy this Omega 14, depends upon what else is available. CHEERS!!!
