Bummer that you never sold it. I've always enjoyed all the info you're provided over the years. I still plan to put some of it to use on my C22, despite the fact that I just bought a C26. So you say you're no long going to be a C22 owner....does this mean you've bought or are buying another sailboat?

One year I had a whole set of multi vitamins mold badly in the second week out! OMG! I had no idea! Fortunately research has shown that multivitimans are pretty much a complete waste of money. Otherwise some great cruising tips, especially the pre-cooling of the cooler with frozen water jugs.

I actually have access to both at the moment, I just need to get them side by side at some point. I appreciate the offer. I just thought I could get the info without getting off my butt, haha. I still wouldn't mind checking out your boat sometime though.

C-22 vs C-26 mast extrusions

Can anyone confirm or deny that they share the same extrusion just different lengths?

Thanks,

I'd be interested in the galley, but you're a 10hr drive from me and shipping would be a bear. Any chance you're driving significantly east any time soon?

Since we're on the topic of heads, I have a few questions.

Did the C-22's ever come with a marine head? If so, where exactly were they placed? Anyone have photos? What about the holding tank and the pump out?

I'd likely be insterested in the tiller but more specifically the tiller to rudder post interface. Mine seems a little wonky and I'm not sure whats up with it. This is for a c-22 right?

That's pretty much where I ended up mounting mine. I do at some point need to replace that wooden bulkhead. Mine is getting rotten at the bottom. I made a little bracket out of some scrap aluminum to mount my bilge pump and float switch. http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k33/kleinbiker1/Chrysler%202...

Thickened epoxy will hold the board you build to mount your batteries to. Rough-up the gel coat to get a good bond. You'll need heat enough for it to kick, if it's too cold it will never go. Moisture in the air can eventually spoil one of the components. Good advice. I'll be considering my options ...
