Cal 20 + Trailer

by Jay
(Humboldt County, California)

I have a Cal 20 for sale. In good shape. No leaks. I rebedded the deck hardware with 3M 4000. I rebuilt the companionway. I reinforced the bulkheads. I painted the bottom. I recaulked the deadlights and the gunwale with 3m 4000 and 3m 5200, respectively. All work done in Nov/Dec of 2015.

Trailer is in excellent condition, with drum brakes, new tires and lights.

Mainsail and jib. Mast and boom are anodized.

I recommend next gauge up for rigging, keeping the old rigging for backup.

Outboard motor mount.

Never been in saltwater. It's in Humboldt county, California, from Truckee (Lake Tahoe)

Hull #575
