Hurricane Florence

I have the Chrysler 22 in storage in Hampstead, NC, and apparently it made it through the storm just fine (according to the boatyard at least). I'm curious to go down and take a look to be honest, but I think everything still closed down there.

Maybe is a sign from Poseidon?

Re: New unbelievable mast raising system

I had a better system using a 12x6, a winch, some ratchet straps, and a block. I'll have to diagram it sometime. I'm planning in setting up the same system to raise and lower the Compac 23 mast.

Hello! Awesome, solid boats. I can't seem to get rid of mine even though I recently bought a Compac 23. I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I was looking at your pictures, and according to the instructions that came with my Tohatsu outboard, I have to store it horizontally with the tiller down so o...

Hello! Welcome. Capt Scott is right. The boat weights about 3,000 pounds, plus all the gear. Solid boat all around. I used to tow it with a 2004 V6 Tundra.

Re: C22 Keel Bracket/Pin Kits for Sale

Hello, it's been a while. I'm trying to get my 22 back on the water after a long hiatus, and one of the things I do want to service is the keel. Same question, are you still making the brackets?

15K is a bit too much. I went to see a 1980 S2 8.5 (28 footer) yesterday, and the boat only needed a good cleaning. With a new diesel engine, all the electronics, etc, etc, the owner is asking 6K.

I already went through that when I bought the boat. Removing the toe rails and removing all the silicone was a very frustrating job.

It is also a bit scary the whole maintenance thing. Compared to the C-22, everything is BIGGER.

I don't know, I do know the deck of the C-22 is honeycomb (like cardboard with epoxy). They did use plywood where they installed the hardware on deck, I know because I had to cut and replace mine in the lifeline stanchions.
