Almost did it again! LOL!

Sadly I am guilty of hovering over Craigslist and OfferUp for that next boat. I've been minus a fixerupper for a year and a half now. I spied a prime candidate for me to play with. While not a Chrysler it was clearly neglected at best and possibly abandoned! It was for sale on OU so I contacted the ...

Re: sailing on the san juan straits

One more item for you! Go buy a current Waggner Cruising Guide. They are available on Amazon or your local boat shop. I bet there is one in PA. These guys do a great job. 2018 version is available! We buy one every year or two and pass the old version on to local boaters. They give very good descrip...

Re: sailing on the san juan straits

You could experience a ton of different scenarios in the same water. Generally in the summer winds can get very fickle. Last summer we spent 2.5 weeks in the Saun Juans and Gulf islands and only saw rain on the last day coming home! Other times not so nice. Plan carefully around where you want to be...

Re: C22 on ebay

Only thing sailing news here is we were just required to do a self survey on Destiny for our insurance! We've had her 14 years now and this is the first time ever the insurance company wanted any proof of condition other than when we purchased her! It required several general photos and a few specif...

Re: Anchoring Techniques/Advice?

LOL! No errors and no corrections! Simply my shared personal opinion! Please note, if the weather is calm, anchorage is tight, and many other boats, use 7:1 to SET your anchor. You can then adjust the rode to conditions. You also may want to know I am very conservative when it comes to safety! Scott

Re: Anchoring Techniques/Advice?

Sir, with all due respect, where I sail a scope of 3:1 is barely a lunch hook. You will get as many different opinions as there are members here if everyone responds! LOL! Get a current "Chapmans" book and look it up. There you will get a very good place to start on proper anchoring. I'd a...

Re: New Year's Day Ordeal

WOW! Quite the story! Glad all is well! As far as that rudder, On one of my C22 boats I had to put a small "T" handle on the lines to pull the rudder up and down. I also changed the lines to red and green lines. Green down and red is up. The idea is to always know I am pulling the correct ...

Re: Winter in Slip

If you are floating you boat in sub freezing weather have you considered heating the boat? We are in Puget Sound and it does not get below freezing for any real length of time. Some key thoughts are open all hatches that have through hulls. They need access to the heat. Sometimes a simple lightbulb ...

Re: Winter in Slip

Sounds like you have her pretty well cared for.

Only other thing to consider in my book is, if you have ac at the dock and boat, an automatic bilge pump might give some piece of mind!

Regular checks are best though!

FYI I have pulled the starboard plug that you describe on 4 c22's without issue. Please note they were all pulled on the hard. Never in the water. No reason other than it is my way.

They all went back in place reasonably easy.

Good morning! In short, you should have a pair of snatch blocks you can clip to the toe rail of your C22, 1 for each side. You can move them for and aft as necessary per sail size however they are not really meant to be changed under spirited sailing conditions! Run the jib sheet outside of all life...

The controls I used were original Chrysler controls!
Forward, reverse, and throttle for each direction! In the cockpit!

Poke around here! There are folks that do not like them and sell them!
You will have to purchase the parts to adapt the controller to your motor though!
