Anchorage Technique]

Well, it takes a thinking sailor to come up with that! lol I think your idea is great and I am going to download it. From personal experience and from reading articles about anchoring methods, many look at it as "the dirty but necessary" job at the end of a good day of sailing. Running a boat into a...

It looks like it was damaged from the keel swinging too far

This is late and at the end of a string of comments but I have something to add. I got my boat 7 years ago and - in ignorance - wound out the winch cable until I heard a crunch. I winched in some wire, sailed it for a week and during that week I remember being quite annoyed that water was entering t...

Salon Table

NICE!!!!! Thanks for posting those pictures! That is the neatest idea and I would most definitely copy that if I were keeping my boat!! I keep doing things to the boat that I think a new owner would like and that one is REALLY tempting!!!!. I have gone to the store so many times at 50 bucks a visit ...

Thanks much! I then think my next move is to find a piece of tube that fits snugly because none came with the boat. Thinking through the process it looks like: 1. I will sit in place, decide exactly how high I would like the table top and cut the post accordingly. 2. put the post in the sole bracket...

Salon table

Well, I am wrapping up almost 7 years of re-building my TMI 22' and am almost ready to sell her. Over this last winter I made a nice replacement table in the salon and that was going to be the end of the table project. Until this spring when I really committed to selling. I recently decided to fit t...

1 man mast raising system

Early this summer I decided to rig my TMI in a way similar to the C22's, using the old Chrysler bridle system. Bill was kind enough to give me the dimensions to the recommended toe rail slots for the Bridles. And, over and over I watched Scott's sequence of photos as he raised his. My big project th...

It's almost hidden because of the name, yet it has great info. Be nice if it could be re-named - or a copy made that has a name referencing the winch and/or cable.

And a big affirmative from here about the comment that the keel cable should never be slack. I changed mine in the last year and used the Chrysler manual in the document section. It even states what the angle of the keel is with a certain amount of turns on the winch. It's a document in C22 section ...

I understand everything that is required and the setup which Chrysler provided still sounds much simpler than all the other rigs I have seen or heard about, so I am duplicating that. While I could simply decide how far apart I would set the bridle ends, some engineer at Chrysler may have had a metho...

C22 Aluminum Toe rail slot dimension needed

I am hoping a C22 owner can provide me with a dimension? The dimension is needed because I want to utilize the old C22 mast raising system but my TMI22 does not have the aluminum toe rails that are used to fasten the port and starboard bridles. I am going to create my own fastening points for them b...
