A Potted Careel History

Postby maxm » Tue Aug 23, 2005 5:11 pm

The following is extracted from a post on Yahoo from Phil Cox (former CCYA Commodore) from information he gleaned from Bruce Tinsdale (CCYA Historian and Keeper of the Boat Register, retd)

C18 MARK I

18/01 Built July, 1970

1st change, fit a heavier keel (3/4 plate steel) from 18/150, June, 1974

MARK II with 2" higher freeboard from 18/415, June, 1981 a yet heavier keel from 18/418 no specific date

MARK III, Same hull as MK II but a new deck and cabin moulding allowing approx 4" more headroom over MK II. First was 18/443, August, 1984;

MARK III Continental 18/457 June, 1988. Also first with heavy (heavier than Mk II?) cast iron keel

MARK III Continental 18/460 - First with Hydraulic keel raising system - lovely! June, 1989

A new one (number 482?) currently under construction.

C22

22/01 built 1974 February. This is commonly known as the "Short Cabin" version.
22/41 1st change was to make cabin longer (known as the "Long Cabin" - no year quoted)

Max, good stuff, I stickied it to keep it at top. Probably worthwhile if you also put it on the for sale section.

Done! Now also to be found in the "For Sale" section. Probably worth making it sticky there too.

Careel Brochures, Specs etc

Postby brennyboy » Thu Sep 08, 2005 10:10 pm

Would this be a good place to post brochures and similar historical material on Careels? Prospective purchasers and others might be interested.

I have some C18 material that I think came from the old Yahoo site but I have never seen any C22 brochures unfortunately.

Here are some old brochures for the Careel 18.

C22/43 "True Blue" is a short cabin. C22/47 "Pipi" is a long cabin.

Pipi

Postby brennyboy » Sun Sep 11, 2005 8:46 pm

Please don't mention Pipi.
:cry:
They were our arch rivals in a closely fought battle for last and second last in the C22 Nationals. The feelings about it all are still quite raw. :wink:

At one stage we thought we had them. We had snatched the lead during a flukey LBG wind change and were sneaking away towards the yacht club gaining a bit more every minute. To celebrate, we decided to make a nice cup of coffee to have with some fruit cake, as you do in the heat of battle. Rosanna was below with the kettle on while I drifted off into a daydream at the helm, watching the clouds slide gently behind parliament house. Pipi headed off behind us on an obscure course, obviously lost and confused. Rosanna returned to the cockpit bearing hot drinks and was impressed at how far ahead of Pipi I had managed to get.

"Did you go around that mark?" she queried.
"No but those silly buggers did" I responded smuggly.

The I copped it. *&%$#. You stupid *&%$#
My darling wife, now Chief Navigator, couldn't contain herself as we turned and headed for the mark that we should have rounded. The crew of Pipi smiling broadly as they sailed past to victory.

All good fun!

Hi Max,

Just been reading the Careel Potted History and note that MkIII Continental 457 was the first of the Careels fitted with a cast iron keel (centre plate?)
Jabiru is a MkIII,( 455 ) and it has a cast iron keel so perhaps
this change actually started in earlier MkIIIs but only became public as a marketing point when the Continentals were launched on the market.
Just a thought

Jim

Some interesting info about the 22 - thanks to Mark Sheaves.

Next time I do some maintenance to the main site I'll add them to the list of docs.

By the way, Darcy Greives has C22 #43 which is a short cabin version so I think the 22 numbers might be a bit sus.

James,

No, that's correct. Looks like #41 was the first long cabin. It must have been optional for a little while because #43 was built as a short cabin. But it was the only one so all C22's since #41 were long cabins except #43, last of the shorties.

Camel,

Have a look in the "Introduce Yourself" topic. There are separate threads for the C18 and the C22 listing the boat numbers and names (where known).

Being the soon to be new owner of Mk111 # 457 ... I was interested to find this info

so it seems 457 was the first continental .. what is the difference between a continental and an ordinary mk111 ?

also it says that 460 was the first boat with hydraulic keel raising ... 457 has hydraulics too i wonder if it was retro fitted ?
looks to me like it was that way from the start ...
