So, I saw an ad for a Capri 13 with a really nice trailer and two sets of sails for$150, I was mildly interested in the boat, but the trailer was mint and took a spin out to central Ma. Mast step repair is an understatement more like mast replacement, it was detached from the deck and wobbled around, once I cut around the opening, I just lifted it out. I ground all the goop off the bottom of the tube and got most everything out of the step in the hull. I have a couple ideas on how to fix this but have never had to replace the whole thing, I would welcome any ideas and observations. I was thinking of harvesting parts and disposing of the hull, but the two owners and their son got to me, 80-year-old wife and 85-year-old husband who love this boat and are wanting me to send them pictures of my progress. They were so sad that they haven't been able to sail her in three years, their "Miss Capricious". I'm a sap and have to try to get this boat moving again.
