Re: which boat should I look at?

Even with a long-shaft, I didn't send anyone forward of the cabin as the OB would lift up too much. That's the thing with the CAL - it doesn't have a lot of beam, so weight distribution is important.

Re: Depowering the sails

I don't think I would have a mainsail up at all in 25-30 knots. Potentially that is up to 4 times the power in the sails compared to 10-15 knots, so a single reef isn't going to do the trick especially in a tender boat like an RL24.

Do you have a second reefing point?

Re: which boat should I look at?

Almost every CAL14 seems to have differences to the others. Some had cockpit seats which were flush with the sides of the hull and some, like mine had coamings. Some had the cockpit seats going to the transom and some (like mine) stopped a foot or so ahead of it which allowed room for stuff like fue...

Re: which boat should I look at?

I have owned both types. If you want sailing performance, the CAL is a little thoroughbred. It has enough ballast to be quite stable and is a delightful little boat. Space and load carrying ability are the problems. I had a 2.3HP Honda for mine and it did over 5 knots on the CAL. I also had an old 5...

Re: Sailing on Gippsland Lakes after Christmas

PS. Just got advice that the ferry is returning to service at 5PM today so whatever the problem was, they fixed it quicker than expected. Maybe the sudden stop Marg reported the other day damaged something?

Re: Sailing on Gippsland Lakes after Christmas

During the scheduled major maintenance last year, they found major rust in the hull which necessitated a much longer stay on the slip to fix. Haven't made contact yet about this unscheduled event, but clearly if they expect to fix it without slipping in about 36 hours, it isn't a major job. (hopeful...
