Re: What else entertains you?

I play guitar and sing.
I have been an advanced class amateur radio operator since 1974 and I am now studying for my extra class exam.
I also camp in a small Class C RV, grow tomatoes, go bicycling, shoot target pistol, do some cooking, and of course endless work around the house.

I really don't remember the turnaround time. Just give them a call and ask, they probably aren't very busy this time of year.

Re: My take on swing keel repair

You did a wonderful job on the swing keel project, Dizzy. Preparing to do mine gave me many sleepless nights...so glad when it was completed.

Re: OEM Standing Rigging ?

In 2011 I put up my mast and adjusted the rigging properly. I then took the mast down and removed the standing rigging, marking each piece and coiling them up. I called Seco South in Largo, Florida. They instructed me to ship the old rigging to them. I shipped it UPS...don't remember the cost but it...

Re: Newbie to sailing

Welcome to the forum. If you have any questions about work the I have done on my C22 restoration, feel free to message me at astrorad1@wi.rr.com It is quite a coincidence that you started with an O'Day Javelin and are now moving up to a C22, as I no longer own a C22 and have moved down to an O'Day J...

Keeping in touch...

Just posting to keep the forum alive. My C22, Wabi Sabi, is now in the possesion of the Kenosha Community Sailing Center. She will probably see more use than I was able to give her. I now own a 1984 O'Day Javelin 14, which needs absolutely no work. I hope to sail her on the numerous inland lakes in ...

I just purchased a 1984 O'Day Javelin 14, that needs absolutely no work and is in cherry condition with crisp new headsail and almost new main. I can fit it in my garage, tow it with my car and rig it without any assistance. Perfect for an old man like me. $1100

Thanks Mark and Bob. My wife also likes to remind me of what I spent and of all the time I used working on the boat. I tell her that at least I wasn't wasting my time in a bar. And with that note....I'll go have a beer.

Well folks, after trying to sell my C22, Wabi Sabi, with absolutely no one inquiring about her all summer long, I am donating her to our local Community Sailing Center. I advertised in many different Facebook selling groups, in Sailing Texas website, and on Craigslist and not one bite. Started out a...

Another option, should your old rudder start to deteriorate, is to buy a replacement rudder from Rudder Craft. I did that and was very pleased with their product. The Rudder Craft rudder is neutral buoyancy. I floated mine in the bathtub, on its side, and it floated with the upper side just at the w...

Registration link broken

I was contacted via email by a fellow named Tim Burke. He would like to join the forum but states that the registration link is not working. He is also interested in obtaining some keel brackets and mentioned Guster as a source.
