I am the new guy

Postby B&G Clinger » Wed Jul 18, 2018 9:48 am

Hello Everyone! I am the brand new guy and am intersted in getting into sailing. I have looked around at, what seems like 100s of old boats, and found a couple of old Chryslers to go look at. And then found this forum.
So I said all that to say this.....I searched for the wieght of a 22 ft Chrysler Sailboat and didnt really find anything to answer my question. Now I realize there are probably a ton of variables here, but would anyone be willing to get me in the ball park on an estimate of the wieght of boat and trailer?

Hi new guy!
Welcome to the forum!

If memory serves, the C22 weighs in around 3K lbs and I always used 1K for the trailer. There are many factors like gear and such that can change the numbers but that is what I used for my needs.

Again,
Welcome!
Scott

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.
