Not sure if little hatch is functional on the CP 16-3.


My "Foundling" is a '93 CP16/3, and the hatch is indeed "functional" with a swell screw-adjustable arm, but it's strictly for ventilation unless you're maybe Plasticman. All the KY in the Galaxy wouldn't get me up on deck through that hatch. Still, it's handy for pulling up and easily stowing one of those little watt-and-a-half Harbor Freight solar panels to keep the battery in the bow happy. I just raise and lower it back into the cabin on rainy days by it's lead, which I leave looped over that hatch arm set screw.

Bilge,

I agree, not enough grease to get my belly though my 19 hatch.  But fully useful to drop pass thru to forward berth.  On the 16, no big cushioned landing pad below.  Stuffing a jib thru the opening looks challenging...vent seems to be answer, but cowl might be better option.

Hmmm....thinkin you might snag it if not!  :)

Eventually most folks will come around to the realization that a 16 is the perfect sized take anywhere, cheap to keep boat!

   hate to bring this up but there are other options. catalina and hunter both make similar boats that may sail better. as much as I liked my com-pac 16 my catalina 18 would sail rings around that little 16. takes a bit more time to rig (maybe 10 minutes) but has gobs more room, is roomier and more comfortable and points higher and at 1500lbs not much heavier. my point, as good as com-pacs are there are other alternatives.

Folks,

I just got off the phone with Nick.  Sounds like a great guy.  I will be seeing boat on Saturday.

If I get in trouble with wife, I will blame Kevin and Bob...

There is a chance I need a place to hide the boat from my wife, just until the time is right to tell her...or I may need a place to sleep...maybe both.

The Capri 18 is indeed a great little boat! Catalina has always made a solid product for a fair price. Must admit I do like the appearance of the Compac better and a good comparison size wise would be the CP19 and the Capri 18. It is a solid boat though. This is the CPYOA so......guess we are allowed a little preference!

Good luck all in the search!

y ou are indeed right about the com-pac look. top of the list when I decided to get a bigger boat to replace my 16-1 was the com-pac eclipse. we sailed on one owned by a friend and we just loved it, but sadly couldn't find one we could afford. the cp19 was our second choice but again I couldn't find a "nice" one we could afford. the capri isn't much heavier than the cp16 at 1500lbs and is easier to rig than the cp19 and fits in the garage. she's not near as pretty as any com-pac but at 4 grand a bargain apologies to com-pac sailors who take exception to my post.

Snuck up to marina today.  My sister once dated the marina owner in high school, and I never really never got over their breakup.  I have had slip fees ever since...

The boat is a Cp-16 Mk1, hull#875, 1979, in real good condition for her age.  Much better than I have kept myself. 
Pros: condition, White hull with no name graphics on broadside, CDI furling jib, hayalards led to cleats on cabin top for cockpit access, very cool dual solar battery charger on companionway slide hatch top.
Hull looks good and no visual issues with keel.  Fair asking price.  Motor mount looks newer and solid.
Exterior teak was replaced by white "starboard", job looks well done, but need to check cabin interior.
Running and mast lights.

I did not go onboard, or look in the cabin, I will see with Nick tomorrow.  Boat has 2 battery system, and an electric motor that I did not see, but may work well for my combustion engine incompetence.

Cons: Trailer will need work or replacement if long hauls are planned.  some silicone around bow eye. Trailer (magic tilt) from Clearwater, FL, and may be  Original.  I think the tilt function may no longer be possible.

Conclusion, need to see more. Need to look up new trailer price.  No warning flags yet.

If anyone wants to see boat on early Sat dec 23 morning, Near Long Branch NJ, let me know.  I think Nick would be ok, and it sounds like he does want to sell boat to move to a larger size.
