Re: C22 Stern rail

For one of my boats I made a "T" shaped bar for this. The "T" was set in the stern upside down and I welded a "U" shape to the bottom of "T" which held the mast up. I made the leg of the "T" much longer too. That lifted the mast higher and made stepp...

Re: Considering New to me C-20 Daysailor

Welcome to the forum! I briefly owned a C20 however sold it before I ever sailed it. I've regretted that since. The cockpit on the C20 is freakin HUGE! Way more space than the C22. I'd venture 6 adults comfortably in the cockpit all day. The cutty cabin is just that . Tiny space but very functional ...

We are back!

We spent two weeks aboard Destiny in the San Juan Wa and Gulf Islands BC CA!

We had a great time! Managed to see Minke whales, some transient Orca whales, and even a Grey Whale!
We had some mechanical issues but got through them and had a great time!

Re: Rudder

Not necessary.
I've had 4 C22's to date and all had center mounts on the motor.
Typically I ran with rudder down fully all the time. When motoring the motor was locked to keep it from turning and I steer with the tiller/rudder.

Never had an issue.

Re: New to me C22 Concern with Rudder Assembly

Welcome to the forum. For what it is worth, I had a C22 with bent/damaged rudder plates similar to the pictures shown. Found a local welder that could build a new rudder shaft and plates for me very reasonably priced. I also replaced the bushing and do not recall it being a problem finding one. It h...

Re: Rudder

Best thing is to go to our documents page and look at the rigging design of the 22. There is a pair of lines on the rudder itself. One to pull the rudder up and the other to pull it down. There is a jam cleat on the tiller handle to hold the line in use. When I replaced these lines on a C22 I used a...

Re: New to me C26

Consider looking at the raising the mast on a C22. I believe they are very similar. There are many methods here on the forum for stepping the mast. Search for a few of them and take the best of all options that will work for you!

Re: Thoughts on getting water out of the hull

Toe rails and stantions can leak. Portals can leak. Leaving the companion way boards out will leak. Keel pin and plates could leak. So basically anything that created a hole on the glass might leak! LOL! For me, I sail in salt water. I could literally taste the water ( don't swallow ) for salt or fr...

Re: Starting diesel

Yeah, if you have disassembled the fuel lines, proper bleeding is likely required for that motor.
Good luck and keep us posted on what you find!

Hello, I am not familiar with that particular diesel engine however they are generally pretty similar. I will assume you have good fuel. Check all your fuel lines and make sure they are nice and snug! Check the injectors too! We were crossing the Straights of Juan de Fuca in dead calm one year and o...

We completed and relaunched Destiny on Sunday morning! NO issues at all. Sanded the bottom, painted the bottom, new zincs, and polished the sides of the hull! Our launch time was 9:30 and the Port was late compliments of the previous boater not being ready. No worries, we sat in the PU and chatted. ...

Thanks Dan,
We are expecting very nice weather. We might even hit the 80's!
I prefer the cooler 70's when doing this work but the 80's sure beat rain! LOL!

The outboard on our dink also gets a new impeller this year. Parts are scheduled to arrive Tuesday next week so I'll be a busy guy!

Re: replacing the RF jib with a std. hank on jib.

Welcome to the forum!

I would think that simply taking off the RF jib and forstay, put on a standard forstay, and hanking on the new jib would be as simple as that.


I've gone the other direction on boats but not RF to hank.
