Re: Bought a new sail for my 26 today

They made my Main two years ago with 2 reefs. Very nice job.

Re: Bought a new sail for my 26 today

I guess even though I gave them the Chrysler documentation for the sail they still need measurements. Does anyone have measurements for a 130 on a Chrysler 26. My mast is down an I would not be able to put it back up until spring.

Bought a new sail for my 26 today

Well I am getting closer to getting my 26 a full set of sails. I took advantage of Precision's Black Friday sale and bought a 400 series 130 Genoa. I saved $200.00. I now have a new main, new 130, used 170. Hopefully before I hit the Gulf I will have the all important Storm Sail. In the spring I hop...

Re: C-22 keel removal how much clearance is needed

You can do it if you jack up the trailer and support it with blocks. Then remove the axles, just roll them out of the way. Of course this depends on your trailer config.

Re: stove replacement in my C26

Sounds like you may have had it pumped up too high. If you get rid of it please let me know. By the way my son was killed from a LP heater explosion, (Mr. Heater) far more deadly than alcohol.

Re: stove replacement in my C26

I have a Kenyon pressurized stove and love it. I saw on one of my facebook groups someone had a simple single burner that hooked to a little propane bottle that set into the sink that also converted to a regular two burner stove. So you got three things in one. Looked kinda OK. The problem with prop...

Re: Sailing in the Keys

I would be interested to hear how your trip goes. I was in the keys for about two months and had a good time. I was not sailing at the time. I too would like to go to the Dry Tortugas. I have a 26 so if your 22 does good I should have no problem. Watch out for the crab pots! I was in the Marathon an...

Captain Scott, do you know where to get the rudder kits for the 22. Someone keeps asking me and I do not know what to tell them.

Re: C26 Performance?

I was going by what I was able to do on my boat with less than optimal sails, I now have a new main and soon to have a new 130 or 150. I have not yet used the 170 which is rather newer. Time will tell.

C26 rigging question

I am going to redo my standing rig this winter. This boat was new to me a couple of years ago and when I set it up I just used what was there. There are some irregularities in the setup. All the chainplates are 5/16". The shackles range from 1/4" to 3/8". I would not think that a 3/8&...

Re: C26 Performance?

Depends a lot on upwind downwind or cross wind. I can hit hull speed downwind no problem. On Lake Superior I only had a 100 jib and I could have used more. I now have a 170 I am looking forward to trying. Up wind is not the best performance. In my opinion it is not a racing boat, it is more of a cru...

Highwinds there is more weight on your foot than there is on the toilet flange. It is not supporting more than about 50# and it is twice the area of my shoe.

Re: C26 Mast raising pics

Looks good, I can recommend using PVC pipe and a toilet flange for the support. If you use a 4" on he bottom and insert a 3" inside that you can raise the mast quite high before you start. Just use a bolt through two holes predrilled in the 4" pipe. Then raise the mast by hand with a ...

Re: Motor down, rudder up

Just put a remote on it. It does not have to turn so a simple remote to the cockpit would be an easy fix. Throttle lever that goes forward and reverse. You are going to have trouble with it coming out of the water in rough water though.

Re: Motor down, rudder up

I did the upper Mississippi WI to St Louis on a 28' Triton sailboat with a 6 hp outboard at just an idle. There are a lot of sailboats on the Mississippi places as big as lakes. Depending on which way you go you are also traveling though a large lake. Once you get to the Gulf you are sailing all the...

Re: Motor down, rudder up

It is an AC induction motor, "AC Induction Motors with Encoder" you can run it AC or DC. They do not have my motor anymore it was rated at 100 amps for 2 min. It all comes down to heat and how you get rid of it. The whole difference between what I have (Hybrid) and a 10 hp ICE outboard is ...

Re: Motor down, rudder up

Well it is a sailboat, full power is more like 80 to 100 amps. I have never run it that high you are just pushing water at that point. I can run it at about 4 mph which is a good clip for my boat @ I think it was about 40 or 50 amps. mostly I run it at 2 mph that's 10 amps. I use cheap menards Exide...

By the way, I can unbolt the lower unit with the four lower bolts and replace it if I need to. The fixed part never needs to come out.

I welded an aluminum plate to the lower unit. This is sealed from the platform in the post above. Also it is sealed around the lower unit itself with butyl tape for sealing windshields. I have never had a leak.

This is if you are skimming the bottom. how often are you going to be in that shallow of water? How fast do you expect to go? If the moto...
