galley ladder suggestions

I need easy access to the engine and the ladder is bolted down. I know the Chrysler Co. offered this boat with a factory inboard. Does anyone know if they ...

C26 keel weight

Hello, this topic may have been addressed but I could not find a post. I'm planning to convert my C26 to a fixed keel by filling the keel trunk and blending the keel foot into a keel fin. Saildata.com has ballast at 2000lb. Question: Is the keel fin 2000lb or is some of the ballast molded into the k...

The stanchions have stains around the brackets and I'll pull ,clean and replace bolts. I haven't found any soft spot.. The rudd...

Hello, I'm considering buying this 1979 c26 that is slipped in salt water. The day I arrived to buy the boat the keel cable broke and it pulled the hose off the keel cable tube.
