Re: In the water 24/7

I kept mine on Lake Pepin for a season a few years back. It went in with fresh bottom paint and came out with and impressive green crud. Do to the time constraints when I pulled it out I wasn't able to wash it off. In the spring it was like concrete. I think with a quick pressure washing of the bott...

Re: Mi Amor restoration

Vikings are great but the wood wing scares people away. Years ago I did some flight training in Alexandria. The factory wasn’t making airplanes anymore but they were still servicing them.

Re: Mi Amor restoration

There are a lot of Chrysler’s in the upper Midwest. One day out on lake Peppin a few summers ago I saw three 22’s (not including mine) and a 26. I noticed the Honda in the back. I have a 22 so it would be tough to find a spot for a generator outside the cabin. I wish I had a 26. That has to one of t...

Re: Mi Amor restoration

Skipper Dan, Nice work. I like the electric sail-drive. We did something similar with our 22 but kept the outboard power head. It was a fun project. It takes a little thinking to operate a outboard below the water line. It's been very reliable but I see an electric conversion in my future. :D I like...

Three or four layers of glass mat were added. that picture was taken before the other side of the hole was filled. The hole was drilled because she sat in a boat yard and it's more economical for them to put a hole in the hull then to take a ladder and pump out every boat when it rains That makes s...

It looks like it was damaged from the keel swinging too far forward and contacting the forward part of the trunk. I think this is fairly common, happens when the cable brakes. I did a small repair on mine in that location. Mine didn't compromise the hull at all just exposed a few layers of glass. It...

It all depends on the conditions. If it is calm and flat you can get away with a fairly small motor. I have a 10hp sail drive now. But when we used an outboard we had a 6hp Evinrude. It worked well but I wouldn't consider anything smaller. But we launch out of a Marina and needed to motor in and out...

James, It all depends on how you use your boat. I normally just day sail and occasionally spend one night on the water. I have a 105 amp hour deep cycle and it is more than enough for what I do. The CD/Radio is the biggest single current draw on my boat at about 1 to 1-1/2amps. I switched all the li...

I always admire the C26. Its got to be the best "cruiser" that is trailer-able. Did you add the bridge traveler or the P.O.?

It's been a while since I had my boat in the water so I forgot to mention this. If you have the original Chrysler trailer, the keel sits in a "V".

Tiller length: When we rebuilt our rudder assembly we made a new tiller handle. I don't know the exact length, but we did shorten it from the original. Overall it is an improvement.

Great photos!

Do you have any shots of the interior? I have been curious to see what it looks like on a fixed keel.

You must have some sort of hard point inside for lifting the boat? Neat way to do it.

I watched "Bloodline" on Netflix. It's a Netflix original series that takes place in the FL Keys. A C22 makes an appearance in the background on one episode. It's a little beat up but it is in the water. Does anyone here own it?
