I've had several C22's with lots of goop put on the leaking area. This is not a fix but can slow the leaking. Keep in mind though, anything you goop in there will eventually need to come back out! LOL! Well, when I did my keel pin plates I was not laughing. Not even a little when I had to clean that...

That looks pretty cool.
I've never seen a Chrysler Sail drive in person!

I'd love to see it just for giggles!

I sure wish the photos were better!

This could be! I never looked closely at mine!
All my C22's had it and I assumed it was a softer point between the post and fiberglass!

Tiller tamer is the answer. Very simple device. Also a tiller pilot at much more cost is very cool! I restore Chryslers and picked up the parts for roller furling along with a purchase of the boats I've purchased. Previous owner had it but no idea how to use it so I moved it to my "keeper" boat.

Yeah, those tracks would certainly relieve the need for snatch blocks on the toe rail. The aft track is most certainly for a genoa and I'd run the sheets outside the shrouds for sure. The forward track looks more like a jib or even a storm jib type setup. Best you can do is experiment with positioni...

I agree with EE 100%.
One more place to look is under the starboard setti.
There is a through hull there also.



When you look at the keel pin area remember to check both sides! There is a big black plug on the starboard side, and look under the forward port setti for the other side.

Another mounting option: On a C22 I glued a 4" ABS plastic pipe cap to the floor under the aft setti.

Very easy, effective, and allowed removal of the ...

JUst FYI: The original setup used a hollow tube for the rudder post. The tube rotated inside of the "Radiator like hose".

I had a boom vang on Lady Jo II. Since I never really raced I used the boom vang to keep the boom from lifting when broad reaching or running.
