CAL 25 One Time #17850

2015 Cal 25 Nationals
One Time #17850 – Art & Scott Melendres
1st Place

One Time is Hull #50 and possesses the “A” style interior. This boat has won three National Championships, nine Southern California Regional Championships, fifteen Fleet V Championships, eight Wet Wednesday Championships, four Long Beach Race Week Championships and many additional major regattas and weekend race wins. One Time may possibly have the most winnings in Cal 25 history.

The boat is completely legal, as per Cal 25 rules and regulations. The boat comes with an abundance of modifications (too many to list) that make it crew friendly and highly efficient for both racing and cruising. She is clean both inside and out. Everything on this boat is in prime working condition. A new racing bottom was put on it in June 2017. There is no better boat on the market than One Time. The boat will be sold with some of its sail inventory.

The asking price is firm at $6,000. Please consider the cost of bringing a lesser priced boat up to racing speed. One Time is ready to sail the moment she is put on the water. One Time will be competing at the 2017 Detroit National Championships, if you are interested in taking a closer look.

Cal 25 (1971) #835 for sale

For sale: 1971 Jensen Marine CAL 25 C configuration hull#1035 & Sail #835

For it’s age, this boat is in decent condition and is sailed in Bayview Yacht Club regattas on a regular basis.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the time and crew to race the boat on a regular basis and because of this, I can no longer justify the expense of owning this well setup racing boat.

There are a couple important things that will need attention.  The mast step beam has rot where the chain plates penetrate the deck.  The chain-plates are securely attached to the bulkhead and there is no concern with them pulling through the deck.  There are several temporary “fixes” for this but the solution is to replace the beam completely.  New beams are available locally for a modest price.  The deck is solid and cabin solid.  Stringers are completely dry and as solid as the day they were built.  The cabin will need a new paint job, I speculate that the previous owner painted it but for some reason the paint didn’t stick, it’s peeling mostly everywhere.

Here’s what it comes with:

– Main Sail (usable, not great)
– Doyle #1 Jib (good condition)
– Very old Hood #1 Jib (poor condition, best used for cruising and deliveries)
– Doyle #3 storm jib (excellent condition)
– Doyle Spinnaker (good condition)

Jib Sheets
Spinnaker sheets/guys
Spinnaker Pole
Harken Traveler
Harken Jib leads, tracks and cars
Lewmar self tailing primary winches
Barrient cabin top winches
Hard boom vang
12:1 purchase backstay tension adjustment
Lewmar rope clutches

Mast has grooved channel for main sail.
Halyards are lead internal to the mast.
Ronstan shrouds and chain plates.

(purchase will include the following)
– Mercury 7.5HP 2-stroke, long shaft outboard motor (mid 80’s) in excellent physical and mechanical condition.
– Chrysler Sailor 180 7.5HP 2-stroke long shaft outboard motor is running condition (mid 80’s vintage) it should be gone over by a mechanic to ensure reliable operation.

Boat looks decent for it’s age.  I have repaired MANY drill holes in the deck that were filled with 5200.  All 5200 was removed and holes were re-drilled, countersunk and filled with West Systems epoxy resin.  The Starboard rear stanchion pulled through the deck and was fixed using fiberglass, epoxy and solid backing material.  I glassed in new backing plates on all load bearing deck hardware, winches, cam cleats and clutches.

In conclusion, this is a great boat!  It needs attention in the areas mentioned above but is usable in it’s current state (raced it last wekend) of repair.  It’s very well equipped from a running rigging perspective, it’s the only CAL 25 i’ve seen that is equipped the way this is.

The CAL 25 class in Detroit is one of the largest and most active in the country.  Bayview Yacht Club and Crescent Sail Yacht Club are where the majority of the fleet is located.

Boat is in the water at Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit and can be viewed and sailed by appointment.
