Thanks Bill!
Some charity is getting a really nice boat.
I know that the Boy Scout summer camp in my neck of the woods, really like the Chrysler 22's because they stand up to the constant use during summer camp.

I'm sure that going form a catamaran to a mono hull would take some getting use to. Be assured that your C22 will not send you swimming. At about 35-40 degrees of heel she will start to develop weather helm, and will want (and will) to turn up into the wind. "Embrace the heel" on the C22, she will f...

I have a 150% genoa that only gets used in light air, and can be a pain when tacking. The head sails I use most often are my 90 and 110. The 90 looks to be the original head sail that came with the boat for general overall use.

On many older outboards there is a adjustment bolt/screw on the upper or lower steering bracket that you could tighten up. On my Chrysler outboard there is a simple bracket the runs from the transom clamp to the tiller mount that locks everything straight. http://i929.photobucket.com/albums/ad138/rb...

I have an AGM battery, a small solar panel that fits in the window (think its a 1.6 amp) and the Chrysler outboard also charges the battery when running.

Cool idea! I never take the time to make a proper log entry.
My dream sailing log software would be voice recognition with auto data collection for wind speed and direction, GPS location, boat speed and heading.
Android would be nice since I'm not a Apple person, but I understand.

To make up the difference in the short jib halyard, I've created a leader out of piece of old 3/8 main sheet. Tied a butterfly knot to hold the straps and main sheet assembly on one end and a bowline at the other to attach the job sheet too. Works great

Other than the mast support I don't have a stern rail.
Personally the way I use my boat for day sailing and an yearly trip to the Great Lakes, I don't want a stern rail, it would make access from the swim ladder into the boat harder.

Good for you Bill!
I hope you took the opportunity to say "I told you so" or Just what were you thinking would happen?"
A sailboat can be great platform to learn lessons, an hopefully lessons that they can apply in life.
Just make sure that a PFD is required.
