Re: Regular dropping mast for bridges

Richard, with the mast fully down, the winch on the mast and a line going back to the transom, is there enough of an angle to pull the mast up? Or do you need something else to get things started?

Re: Regular dropping mast for bridges

Hi Swerve! You thinking about buying another Careel? There's a few nice boats on the market at the moment! :wink: 8) I suspect it'd be easier to rig that setup on a C22 than a C18 because the boom would get in the way on a C18. Whereas, on a C22 you could leave the boom attached. In fact, now I thin...

Re: shroud turnbuckle

Agree with what Fritz says. For mine, if you're replacing one turnbuckle then you're probably better to replace all of them. And the U-bolts while you're at it. Even if you don't replace the U-bolts, at least pull them out for an inspection, especially that one that you use to haul the whole boat ou...

C18 Mk I For sale in Qld

I believe this is C18/126 "Freya" an early-ish Mk I although retrofitted with a sliding hatch, anchor well and updated rudder. Looks like the keel pin has also been redone at some point (all of this assuming that I've got the right boat). If the keel pin has been redone then chances are th...

Re: For sale - Careel 22 / 77 - Chi 2 - in NSW

Hamish, You're not the first to break a mast in a mishap. The boat (not mine!) I saw going through this tragedy had their mast replaced under insurance. Have you tried contacting your insurer? I've had two stolen outboards replaced by my insurer. Even if you still sell, it could be worth putting in ...

Re: Stuck keel

The rear pair of side supports need to be lowered all the way before launching and retrieving, Col. The hull is curved which means that the middle pair of supports are lower than the rear ones. If you don't lower that rear pair the result is that you end up trying to lift the whole boat up and over ...

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...
