$84,500 1973 Cal 2-46 Ketch Boat for Sale in Penetanguishene, Ontario for sale


Speedwell, a Cal 2-46, is very much a "good old boat." My wife and I purchased her in 2007 with the intention spending some years cruising, but we've become too busy to follow that particular dream. Perhaps others with a yearn to sail over the horizon to distant ports and anchorages can find a place for her in their lives.For general info about Bill Lapworth's well-regarded design (the boat he retired to live aboard) I suggest doing the usual Google search. You'll find far more info than I can list here. You'll also find a small, but active Cal 2-46 owners community that is always ready with advice and guidance.As for Speedwell, we've been slowly replacing orignal equipment with new, including anchor winch, roller furling, head sail, cockpit enclosure, refrigeration unit, BBQ, dinghy, whisker poll, MacPack, water heater, hot and cold water plumbing, head, running rigging, mainsheets (yes, two), VHFs, cockpit and salon cushions, mast steps, and some wiring. The wiring dates back to when she 1st launched, and the original and previous owner added and fixed over the years, as did I. It can be a puzzle tearing out old wires and replacing with new when needed.What we haven't done is much refurbishing. So, she doesn't look her best. Having said that, you'd be hard pressed to find a more comfortable and sea worthy cruising boat.According the previous owner, Speedwell circumnavigated the world...twice.
