C22 Keel Bracket/Pin Kits for Sale

Postby Guster » Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:31 am

Hello everyone,

A few years ago I was talking with Scott about making several Keel Bracket/Pin Kits. The plan was to make enough to get the costs down, sell at a good price and have a little left over to help fund the forum. Life got in the way and the next thing I know a few years have passed.

I have 2 sets finished now and enough parts manufactured that I could be ready to ship more within a few days of an order.

The kit includes the two brackets, pin, and pipe plug. They will need to be match drilled for your boat(The hole pattern on my boat was clearly done by hand. I was worried that it would be slightly different from boat to boat). These are well made brackets. They are made from 304 stainless steel, the pin is the standard 5/8" dia. and the bracket sides are made from 3/8" plate.

Price is $250/set. I'll ship for free in the US. Every set sold I'll send Captain Scott $50 to help with the costs of the forum.

Send me a PM for more details.

Cheers,
Dan

Dan,

My compliments for sure. They look great, and I would definitely take you up on one of those if I hadn't already fabbed my own SS set last year. I'm sure someone will come along soon as the weather improves and the covers come off exposing unfinished projects :)

Thanks for posting

Hey there,

I am beginning to finally rehab my C22 and I imagine a new keel bracket will be needed. Are you still making these or have a few laying around?

Thanks,
Jon

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?

Thanks!

Are the bracket pin kits still available? I am interested in purchasing a set in the next couple of months if they are.

I have just joined the forum being the proud and excited new owner of a 1983 Wellcraft Starwind 22... I know this is a Chrysler 22 forum but from all I can tell the boats are virtually identical except for the rudder attachment and some cosmetics done to the back of the cabin. I was wondering if any one knows if the bracket and pins are still available for sale. the only thing that gives me pause about this 40 year old boat is the swing keel ... issues there could lead to a short wet sail.

P.S. really enjoy the entire forum jam packed with information ... thanks

Welcome aboard! The Starwind to my knowledge is a C22 clone with some minor changes as you noted. I haven't seen any brackets for sale postings in a long time. Most of us have had to build our own, or hire a machine shop. I made my own from stainless steel and did my own welding, etc. There are lots of drawings in the documents section. The original design was simple galvanized steel which unfortunately doesn't hold up well over time. What's the condition of the keel now?

from my initial observation the keel looked in fairly good shape . But I only looked from under the boat with a flashlight I bring the boat home this weekend and I will get a better look and explore keel trunk access points..( I did not know about at the time of the purchase) I am planning on replacing the Keel winch . The winch could go up just not down and it was winched in the up position . I do not have the skills to make my own keel bracket ... what do you think the cost to get one machined will be ?
This forum has been great! a wealth of information .

thanks
Howard
