Hi Carol:

We are delighted to have you join us. 😎 Love your email address. Our Ranger Rover's license plate is 'AGROUND'. Only sailors can figure that out correctly.

Please send us some info on yourselves; your present location; your boating experience; short term and long term sailing plans and anything else you would like to share.

Ariel joined our little group in about 1981, so we are probably one of the longest standing members. In the past we had a little more formal organization, sent out newsletters, etc. it's hard to believe, but that was more than a decade before email was started!

If you are interested, after you read the messages, any constructive suggestions, short of forcing me to join Facebook or Twitter, will be well received by this old sailor.

To all Original Cal Cruising 46 owners:

I'd like to know if owners  of the 16-18 original cal built have ventured far off shore like marquesas or Tahiti

I would like to know some experiences anyone has had
What modifications were made
Storm window covers
Internal layout modifications etc

Any suggestions or recommendations on how best to prepare

Thank Roy in advance

Check with Tom on Satori. He has Jack Jensen's that has gone around the world. 
Great storm shutters.

I'm on now called Twisted Journey, a 1976 version.  She made it to NZ and back around 1981.  No storm shutters.

Hello fellow Cal 46 owners

I have the original Cal 46 hull 5 with

hailing port in Marina del Rey  CA

I looked into a transpac regada 2022 requirements

And one of these is a mandatory emergency rudder in case you lose the unprotected 

Spade  rudder

I’ve looked at Scanmar system in northern call

Their bracket/ rudder system unfortunately is only 33% of the existing rudder 

And all the internet research I’ve done indicate that it needs to be at least 50%

Of the existing rudder

Finco fabrication in Santa Ana can fabricate a 50% rudder (with foss rudder and Steve brown )

But I would need a fabricator to custom build brackets and can not find one to do it

Has anyone built a back up rudder? Short of using a Hydrovane or monitor?

Would appreciate any recommendations or tips or any ideas

How to go about doing this

Thanks in advance.  I’d really appreciate it

Took 2-46 from Miami through Panama canal, Galapagos, Marchesas, Australia, Singapore ending in Phuket, Thailand, all with Blue Water Rally group. Follow the trade winds and enjoy down wind sleigh rides.

Mods included HF radio for e-mail, auto pilot, radar and good chart plotter. Was before AIS which you should now use. Had a satellite phone for emergencies and parts ordering, but that was 14 years ago.
