Re: Cal 36 Project

O.K. So what's the big deal ? Needs some epoxy work and a paint job. What's wrong that we can't see ?

Re: Cal 36 Project

The first thing I'd do, were I you, is chain those boat stands together. Helps keep the stick pointed skyward when the earth begins to quake.

Google "chain boat stands together" and you'll get the why and how of it all.

Re: Cal 36 Project

Oh... say.... new electrical, new rigging, standing and running, new water tanks and plumbing, new head, new sails, new cushions, new instruments, re-bedded deck hardware, new port gaskets, rebuilt engine.

The anti-skid is prolly ok, it seems to last forever on the Cals.

And the hulls is fine, built like a brick house.

But yeah, other than that? Love them ole boats...

; -)

Re: Cal 36 Project

Congrats wylekyote on the new addition. I might be a bit biased, but Cals are great boats and a solid foundation to start from. I just hope you have an account at the ACME marine division, you will need it. Good luck and keep the pics coming.

Re: Cal 36 Project

Good looking boat wylekyote, as Sara says, they are built like brick outhouses, and elegant with it... Sounds like a fair bit of work to be done, but once it starts to come together you'll have a great classic there.

Re: Cal 36 Project

With electric propulsion you would still be considered an early adopter of the technology in sailboats, in my opinion. But it is certainly possible today, as others here have done it. Faced with a complete refit, I would consider electric too.

Another consideration might be the hybrid systems being sold. One example is a Beta Marine diesel hybirid with an electic motor/generator which is driven by or drives the output shaft.

Appeals to me because of the choice of propulsion methods and having a built-in diesel generator, not normally fitted to a boat the size of mine.

How do you figure you are saving 300lb? When I've looked at the weight benefits in the past changing has been about a wash, what with engine and fuel tanks and fuel becoming motor and batteries.
