Fast, fun, awesome

Instructions on the boat usage and how to turn on the equipment are available. We request that competent boaters looking for a multi-day charter apply.

About the Boat:
The Cal MK II was designed by Bill Lapworth and built by Jensen Marine. This popular racer/cruiser is a great family boat with a well-designed interior that maximizes the use of space. The interior is laid out with a forward V-berth that will comfortably sleep two adults, and is a bigger berth than on many 40er's. There are two aft quarter berths, for storage or sleeping, and, the convertible dinette to port converts into a double berth for a full boat load of 6. There is ample storage in drawers, cabinets, a hanging locker and under berth storage for all of your supplies. The galley is well laid-out with a deep and well insulated icebox, stainless steel sink, and 3-burner stove with oven.
This boat has the following equipment:
-New 135% laminate Genoa
-New Main with two reefing points and Cunningham
- 185% Dacron Genoa
- Ice box
- Foul Weather gear
- Safety equipment including numerous low profile PFD's
- VHF, ETC.
Dan's boat is very nice to sail; well rigged, and with a very spacious cockpit, you can spend a nice day sailing around the sound. It's also very well equipped if you wanted to do multi day sailing to go further. Everything is well maintained and the guide that Dan also e-mails has all the references for operation of the boat in case you forget anything from when he does the walkthrough with you. Very satisfied and intend to rent again.
Dan provided everything my wife and I needed to have a great two days on Resolute. Maps, resources and guidance as to what would be great to do on the Puget Sound were all provided in a brief email that Ted drafted after I told him what I was up for. Thanks so much for providing a clean and great sailing vessel for us to enjoy on our anniversary trip. Look forward to doing it again!
