Re: Any advice on raising the mast for the first time?

I've purchased very good double-braided poly from a seller on eBay (rags4jc) at super reasonable prices. You can get new and used hardware from him too and he'll cut the poly length to your specification

Here's one such deal

Re: Any advice on raising the mast for the first time?

Check this out from Captain Scott's Sailing website Captain Scott Sailing - Stepping the Mast Single handedly I understand the hesitation. It can be nerve wracking the first time through. The Chrysler mast is very sturdy compared to other sailboats of that era. For instance, find and watch Catalina ...

Re: Well, the keel is off!

Rich, I assumed when you said the keel was off you already had most of it disassembled. How did you get the pin out ---cut it from below with reciprocating saw? Whatever the method, with the keel out go ahead and remove the bracket from each side. Attached with 6 1/4" bolts each side. Once remo...

Re: Well, the keel is off!

Hello to all, I got the keel off this week. I’ll try to post some pictures soon if anybody has any questions about my process or would like to see them. The bolts come out with no problem, but the galvanized piping is STUCK. 40 years of rust! Any tricks for getting these off? Tried to post a pictur...

Re: New to me C22 Concern with Rudder Assembly

All depends on whether the hull was damaged in the process. That SS shaft is very sturdy and the amount of force needed to bend it could have damaged the fiberglass. I would ask for some closeup pix of the hull from both sides.

Here's some of my rudder work

Re: Keel pin bracket design

Mike, The first image is my keel bracket. To answer about the 'shoulder' comment, yes , you're exactly right. I did that so as to limit the lateral movement. Otherwise, you have to put spacers in there to stop the travel. I've seen where people use large plastic washers, etc. for that. One big conce...

Lydia, Do you have any pictures you can attach? I have a C22 with a pop-up. You said everything fit nicely, presumably when the boat was on the trailer, and the keel supported on the trailer. Is the boat still in the water with this condition? If so, now that you're in the water, the keel is only su...
