The Capri 14.2 is a day sailor designed by Catalina Yachts with a large cockpit that can hold up to 4 adults. This version is a Mod 2 which has a sealed storage box instead of a cuddy cabin to prevent turtling.
The good - All rigging and equipment is intact, functional and clean (except the hiking foot straps are tattered). Sails are original but in good, working condition. The foot is a little loose on the main, but I never had any issues with it. There are no gel cracks or gouges in any of the fiberglass. I've owned the boat since 2005. It has been stored outdoors, but always under cover (and usually under shade cloth as well).
The bad - The trailer registration was not properly transferred by one of the previous owners (of which there are at least 4 including me). The 3rd owner swore she had jumped through all necessary hoops to register it in her name. Travis County disagreed and would not allow me to register the trailer without tracking down owner #2. Instead, I simply used plates from my utility trailer when needed. The trailer is in good working condition with tires less than 2 years old. I successfully transferred the boat registration in my name with Texas Parks & Wildlife. Only the trailer registration is an issue.
The boat is priced low so that a new owner can buy a trailer, update some halyards, and still get a good deal. If you happen to be in a county that doesn't visually inspect "home-made" trailers, you might be able to use that as a means for registering the existing trailer.
The boat is currently stored in Pflugerville, Texas.
SOLD. The boat is sold. The new owner just drove away with her in tow. A big thanks to sailingtexas.com. I love your site and have used it now to buy and sell a boat. Keep up the good work,
