Watkin 23 XL Refit


My main sail has slugs. I still have to original main and Genoa for my boat. Last week on the Watkins Group I received information that they are making the Johnson sails again. That is what the original sails were on the Watkins.

We repainted our boat with Interlux Perfection paint. We rolled and tipped the paint. It turned out really nice. We are now putting the hardware back on the boat and we are going to change the bulkhead because the surface is cracked on mine. We are also fabricating some racks for the starboard side to hold the "wetbar" and the dishes.

I would suggest you join the Watkins group. It is [ The folks are really great and very helpful.

Check out my blog:

I would be happy to exchange refit stories with you.
