Hello, Our family has moved beyond high school and into the graduate school phase. Our C-22 is up for sale. The boat is very solid and includes a Harken Furler. The furler alone is worth a lot more than the asking price. It has a single axle trailer. I am unsure if the brakes work. I leave that up t...

Chrysler Enthusiasts in Wisconsin

Creating events are an incentive for me to make more progress, be prepared and makes me a safer sailor. Any interest in a regatta, meeting or tour? H...
