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!

Re: Thoughts on getting water out of the hull

Hello and again welcome to the forum! I installed a "Water Puppy" pump under the companion way near the keel winch. The "out" tube ran under the cockpit and out a drain I had installed well above the water line. The "input" or suction end of the hose I left long enough ...

Re: Starting diesel

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...

Re: Time to lift Destiny!

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.

Hi Richo, Welcome to the forum! The Chrysler 22 is a pretty stout boat. I've personally had 4 of them and all were pretty solid plus the many I've seen otherwise. If you can, get a local sailor to look at the boat with you do it. Someone who is familiar with sailboats. In general I tend to stay away...
