Re: Mast step measurement

I don't have that hook anymore, but it was probably 1/8" thick aluminum plate. Since that's gone, just rebuild
your mast step and install a new hinge plate. You'll need to make some changes to the mast of course but well worth it in long run

Re: C22 Keel Bracket/Pin Kits for Sale

Welcome aboard! The Starwind to my knowledge is a C22 clone with some minor changes as you noted. I haven't seen any brackets for sale postings in a long time. Most of us have had to build our own, or hire a machine shop. I made my own from stainless steel and did my own welding, etc. There are lots...

Re: New Sailor with C22...Need Your Help

Brian, Congrats on the new Sandpiper! The mast on C22's is very robust for its category of daysailor. I can imagine generated a few curse words when it snapped off. Were you using the factory documented procedure with gin pole and bridles to mast and demast? The 'hook' arrangement is not ideal and I...

Re: Rudder head broke

Never heard or seen that happen. Check over at https://ruddercraft.com/
Yes----that is the original factory head

Doesn't look too difficult to machine one from scratch if you have the tools or know someone handy like that. Welding is also an option

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 going for $125

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.

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...
