C18 For Sale in NT

They don't often come up for sale in the Territory! This one is listed on Gumtree for $6,750 in Leanyer, Darwin. She has been used as a motor boat but all the sailing bits are supposed to be still there and would just take a little bit of work getting them all back on the boat. Other than that there...

Re: Stuck keel

Col, My hull number is 429. I am wondering if this means the boat has the heavier keel. If anyone has some comments they would be greatly appreciated. I got a message overnight from Doug who originally built the boat. He advises that your keel is actually fiberglass over a stainless steel space fram...

Re: Stuck keel

Good luck Col, we'll keep our fingers crossed! From experience, sometimes even weird little things can jam it. I've had two instances of a stuck keel which I finally worked out was due to the keel being installed ever so slightly out of line. My reading of the forum suggests completely raising the k...

Re: Stuck keel

Col, I'm pretty sure that the hydraulics on the C18s are the same as the hydraulics on a C22. In which case the only thing the hydraulic does is lift the keel. Gravity lowers the keel. If the hydraulics aren't working (eg a leak) then the keel would drop and wouldn't lift at all. So it sounds like a...

Re: C18 MK1 Charmhaven NSW

That wooshing sound we heard was the rush of people to buy this boat. Sold!

The Celt was well known as being equipped with every device known to man. Not surprised it would sell quickly at that price but in just 1 day seems unreal.

Re: C22 For Sale in WA

There has been a couple more photos added and you can see from those that this is a C22S (short cabin).

Re: Trailer winches

Neither one. Steel wire can kink, losing strength and it'll eventually split strands which can act like meat hooks on your hands. If it snaps under load, it can flick back and cause a real injury. Straps build up rapidy on the winch drum as you're winching making it harder to pull the boat in. Inste...

Re: Rudder question

There ya go, a nice illustration of the fact that we each have our own routines and solutions. There's no one answer. :D One thing to keep in mind though (at least in NSW anyway) is that you can't obstruct visibility of the number plate. It's supposed to be visible across a 180 degree arc. So if you...

Re: Rudder question

Personally I would put it in the cabin while in transit for the simple reason that removing the rudder and storing it is much quicker and safer than tying ropes to secure it.

C22 For Sale in WA

Offers wanted on a C22 in Balingup WA. Anyone interested would need to go have a look because there's little information and only one photo. I'm not even sure if it a short or long cabin.

C18/??? "Open Bar" for sale in NSW

This is something new! This boat is listed on Facebook Marketplace (first one of those I've come across). Currently listed as being somewhere in Sydney at $4,500 and though the photos don't show one, the ad mentions that it has a mast and sails. It could be an early Mk I from what looks like flowcoa...
