Awe man Bill!

I'm sure thankful you've been here all these years and hope you will stay even with the new boat of choice and share your efforts on that one also!

When you sell the C22 someone will be getting a well appointed boat!

Yup!
I stored Lady Jo in a trailer storage place right by the boat ramp for several years!

I could go down, hook up and launch with the mast and boom already rigged, sails already on just need to take the main sail cover off and the jib bag off!


VERY nice! Hope you find a place!

OH that is a tough one!

That takes a lot of experimentation and practice to find the sweet spot as to where you can sail off!

I've never sailed the man-o-war so I can't give specific tips however I do recommend you go practice this maneuver so you are better at it when you need it!

Tiller tamer is the answer. Very simple device. Also a tiller pilot at much more cost is very cool!

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.
