Cal Sailboat owners _ UNITE!

Hey there Guys/Gals,

I had pm'ed a fellow Cf'er to ask some questions about their Cal sailboat as I too am in process of redoing pretty much everything on my boat. He had some really awesome things he has done and will be doing to his boat and I got a few good ideas. I too have done a bit since getting my Cal 2-27 and will hopefully have most major things finished up in the next couple of months. Let's talk about and share improvements or refurbishings that we have or will do to our boats.

I envision this as a brainstorming thread!

Re: Cal Sailboat owners _ UNITE!

I am a member of that group. The only thing with yahoo groups is that they are set up like craigslist. I can't stand the setup.

Would be nice if Cal owners had a thread like the trimaran searunner thread. The member that shared thoughts with me on pm was doing some really cool things to his Cal and I figured we would all be able to talk about issues, strong points and improvements.

For instance, I'm getting rid of my water tank under the v-birth, adding a built in there and also where the engine used to be, so 2 tanks in total. Also, redoing and when I say redoing the galley, I'm talking about taking it out from where it is and putting it on the starboard side of the boat.

Re: Cal Sailboat owners _ UNITE!

There's another on-line sailing forum that specializes in brand-specific forums, but they tend to end up with hugely different conversations than we have here on Cruisers' Forums. I was active on that forum years ago, but the conversations tended to focus around questions like, "Does anyone know where I can get a replacement water tank for the v-berth of my Cal 2-27?

I'd hate to see us re-invent that wheel.

I have a Cal 20 that needs to be redone inside. I want to set it up to cruise on the weekends.

Re: Cal Sailboat owners _ UNITE!

I'm setting my Cal T/4 up to sail from Boston to Bradenton Florida leaving in about a week. I would love to hear and see your other ideas about how you have refurbished, repaired, updated your Cal sailboats. I am going to be making videos, and a blog that will be posted for my long trip.
