Re: New Year's Day Ordeal

Yeah, these were the lines that kept the boat attached to the mooring system. The larger line was used around the deck cleat on the bow and the smaller line was for the bow eye. I'm now questioning if the safety line is necessary or if it may have caused the problem.

New Year's Day Ordeal

So, 2018 decided to throw the wife and me a bit of a curveball. Just as we were arriving to my family's annual New Year's Day Pig Pickin'... the smell of slow cooked pig, collards, and black-eyed peas wafting through the air, I got the dreaded "Your boat's loose" text. Long story, shorted....

Ahh, I love Oriental. This is actually Lake Waccamaw, which is kind of in between Wilmington and Whiteville. It's one of NC's largest fresh-water lakes. It's a nature-lovers paradise and due to it's proximity to the coast often has great winds. I couldn't pass up a 70 degree day in November with 10-...

Very cool!!! I've only had my Chrysler for a little over a year, but one thing that I've noticed is how the rudder control line can slip through the clam cleat under sail. As the rudder is pushed upward by the force of the water, the weather helm increases. It seems as though this would prevent that...

I wish I had more advice for you, but I'm pretty new to the Chrysler. Others may disagree, but I've always thought of Marine-Tex as a temporary fix.

Hi there! I'm pretty new to the Chrysler, but I'll share my 2 cents and set-up if it helps. To answer your question, I think running the sheet through the cheek block on the coaming is necessary. This is especially true in high wind. I would think you need something behind the winch to gain some pur...

My boat came with a 6hp Evinrude (two-stroke). It moves me around just fine, and it has gotten me home when the winds were too strong to sail. Truth be told, I rarely even throttle it up all the way as it will start to push the stern under and flood the bilge/stern compartment. Still, I don't think ...

Same here.... I may be interested if they are in good condition. My mainsail was ripped in a large gust. If Reality doesn't grab them I may be interested. I'm also interested in the jib if if any size other than 130%.

Thanks for the reply! I may consider getting a smaller jib. The boat heels quite a bit in the 10-12 range with the 130. It's not enough wind to make me want to reef, but it would be nice to keep the boat a little flatter. I've been learning a lot and loving every minute of sailing the 22 over the la...

I'm just curious as to what size headsail you fly on your C22 most often. I have a 130% jib and a 150% genoa that came with the boat when I purchased her.

I was on the boat over the weekend to enjoy some unusually warm (upper 70's) NC February days. The wind really picked up Sunday and I struggled to find the right balance of sail area. Winds began to build to 10-15mph or more and were probably gusting to 25 or more. That was what the local weather st...
