      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Looks rough, but if it was ocean worthy in 09 it might still have good bones. It is too much of a boat for me, but it would be a shame to see it go to waste.

 

Hmmmm....

That's what I'm talking about. Find a boat cheap in the PNW. Fix her up, get to know her and then truck it to Florida and you'll still be in it for less than the "normal" boat for sale and you'll already have some experience with the boat.

 

Cal 40. Great boat, especially if you like keeping the cost down.

Rock solid reputation. Cal-40's just took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in their Bermuda Race class. I would put the Cal 40 in the top tier of 'affordable and worthy of refit' choices.

I won't lie, it's *really* tempting. I don't have the $20k right now (figuring on a survey and haulout and a final price in the $15k range just to be bloody-minded.) But that's honestly a boat worth putting the time and money into. Drop it in the back yard (okay, don't have that right now either) for a year and do the bottom, replace any suspect thru-hulls, the engine and electrical work. In the fall order a replacement for whatever sail's in the worst condition. Next spring be back in the water and start working on the project list while sailing.

 

Damnit, that's tempting.

 

Where's my meds...

I have long thought that Cal 40's (one of the all time great boats) were a bargain and this one is even much cheaper than the normal price of $30-50K

 

(I wonder if SWMBO would notice if a Cal 40 appeared on our mooring buoy........)

no, she won't be in the water until August most likely. Heading to the boat tonight for the first time in a month. Though if you believe in fate, this isn't a bad thing. The marina we're heading to has had all sorts of damage due to the torrential rain that's fallen in Duluth.

I smell somebody who has no idea what he was buying or what to do with it after he bought it, and now he wants out. Cal 40s are, as kimb pointed out, not very high-price, but unless those pictures are completely inaccurate the boat's not in bad shape. Neglected, certainly.

 

CA needs a flagship race boat, doesn't it?

Anyone down there in that area willing to go look at it?

Looks like it is close to where I live. I am racing tomorrow, but may be able to stop in after the race. At least I will sail by after the finish and try to make sure it is where I think it is. I remember the boat name from a few years ago.

That boat does look like it has potential, but the ad is wrong in that there was no Vic-Maui race in 2009. They are held on even years. A Cal 40 named Kismet DID win in 1996.

I have sent this to a few friends in the market for a similarly priced boat in the bay area. A Cal 40 is my dream boat, but I don't have the $$ either. If this is really something you might want, I wouldn't let the distance stop you...this is a great opputunity for a good boat (tho the Idea that she may not have been kept up since 96 is a major concern).

This does seem like a great opportunity for the right person. Minor correction on the Bermuda results, "Actea", a Bermuda 40 came in third breaking up the Cal-40 123. http://bermudaraceadmin.com/2012Results/Public/ORRResults.html

y'know, maybe it's because I'm over caffeinated or something, but if CA were going to go the whole 'commune' route, I'd gladly pitch in $50 or maybe even more to see this be a CA boat. Moreso than a lot of the other jalopies that get schlepped around here sometimes.

 

I know, that's pie-in-the-sky thinking. Who would be responsible for insurance? Who would manage it? yada yada yada...it's a cool thought though. ohhh...another latte please!

If we did something like that it'd need to be a subscription/time share sort of deal to cover ongoing maintenance, insurance, moorage, etc. Could do it as a club deal - money or time pays your share, in return you get time on board. It'd be cool, but a major hassle, too.

Also, SA member "wildangels" out of Anacortes has sailed on this boat

 

Boat design- time lapse division. My memory of the Cal 40 is some boxy light weight racer with high freeboard (I sailed a few times on a Cal 36). Just went and looked at the picture, and there is a long ended svelte low to the water sweetheart.

 

I thought the loves of our youth aged- this is the reverse- if only Elke Sommer should be so lucky.

Great boats and just about bullet proof - in Seattle we used to get 15+ for our own class in Puget Sound races (including this boat Kismet). The hull is laid up fiberglas and the stem is no shit about 6" thick. My parents had "Maria", which came with an SORC rule-beater bowsprit, which we removed...the thru bolts were almost 9" long. I saw a local Cal 40 (which shall remain nameless) t-bone an Ericson 39 and leave a hole big enough to crawl through....Hooligan had scratched paint.....talk about a Honey Badger boat :D.

When my parents bought Maria, it was trashed - but the boats are simple and built right, so she came back and was a great looking boat until we sold it.

 

At $18.5K it's an amazing buy - even if you had to put $30K into it, it would still be a bargain.

Hmm, I bet Wildangels will know something about this boat too. I know the previous owner. Not Charlie, I believe he had a partner when he owned Kismet. I will email her and see if she knows anything.

 

Any way, she seems like a steal.

This boat is a steal! I sailed on her way WAY back when she was only a decade old. I haven't seen her since about '75.

 

You could have one of the best boats EVER for about $50k including all the re-fits unless there is something terribly wrong.

 

Just thing, that's about what Kimb will pay for his set of sails and you can get an entire boat that could (if you know what you're doing) win the TransPac or Bermuda Race. One of these held the single handed TransPac record for something like 15 years, it may still hold it. It's the one with the white, gray and red chute above.

 

Someone should at least look at it!!

A Cal 40 (Stan Honey) does still hold the SHTP record. It is finally expected to fall this year with a well-prepared Open 50 entered. Assuming he finishes the record should fall.

 

SHTP starts this Friday. It's on my someday list and one of the reasons I picked a J/120 for a "cruising" boat.

Hey, I bought a used Farr 40 rig so I could use some of those lightly used Farr 40 sails that are floating around. (Just like Jonathon McKee does.)

 

It should not be anywhere near $50K! (Lots of other things are costing $50K on the Sliver, but hopefully not sails.)

It is a shame to have that nice mooring in front of Kim's place going unused, actually I think it may be illegal to leave it empty. Clearly he has a responsibility to all of us in the sailing community to purchase this boat, it is the least he could do. We have expectations around here.

If the weather clears today we are heading down to pick up a park buoy for the night at Blake, swing by on the power cat to pick me up and I will help bring the C40 over from Port Orchard. We could put a big bow on it for SWMBO.

Really, with it being some time until Sliver is good to go, and the Cal40 just needing a bit of love to make it nice & clean it is pretty REASONABLE - get the Cal, do the minor stuff spending as little as possible ( hah ! ) and sail it this summer/fall and put it on the market when the big boat is READY - it'll pay for itself in NOT rushing the build.

 

Or start the CA charter program. I'll sign up for a weeks' use next summer.
