Re: Cortez 16

And what a Cortez looks like when it sinks. Lol (btw it's back on top of the water now)

Re: Cortez 16

Great pics! I thought the boat had some positive floatation built under the berths.

I am an infrequent visitor to sailnet. I do not have any pictures of my boat in the water.

Re: Cortez 16

Hello every one. I am thinking of buying a Cortez 16 but there is not a lot of information out there (beyond basic stats/specs) from what I can see. I would be learning to sail on it and I think it is a great boat for that. Slow and stable as well as comfortable looking. Does anyone have access to an owners manual so I could properly rig and use this boat. Being able to source information will be the main factor in my buying decision. Does anyone have a good reason to avoid this boat? Are there typical problems most people have with them? Thanks for any info as I am looking forward to joining the sailing community.

Bob

Re: Cortez 16

Good luck on finding a manual. You are correct it is a good stable boat to learn on. Its a great fair weather boat. My boat is hard to run a course greater then 15 knots. But my sails are stretched out like pregnant pants. It has an weight swing keel that making small adgustements to can be difficult single hand.

As for sinking it. Was out lake sailing and came in for lunch, tied it to a tree by the beach I parked on. While eating one of those great Oklahoma storms developed on us. Well my quick lunch knot didnt hold up in the +70 wind gust, it started to float away and 4-5' waves over took it.

But it back on top of the water , so its all good.

Re: Cortez 16

Wow, that will ruin your day. I am hoping to pick up the boat tonight or tomorrow. It is a 1973 early hull that has no hatches in the cockpit benches or in the berths. I can only assume there is flotation in there.

Re: Cortez 16

I will. 106 hulls total or in 1973? I would love to see how the boom is rigged to the wire frame on the stearn. Mission bay is 7 miles from my house with steady prevailing winds. I will get aquainted with her there and as my skills improve I will make the 10-15 mile run down the coast to San Diego bay. Or up the coast to La Jolla. On good weather days. This hull has so much freeboard I think it will be fine on open water on nice days. Then again yours went diving in 4-5 foot waves on a lake. Do you think you could have kept her afloat if you were on board? Well i am getting excited. I hope to be on the water soon.

Re: Cortez 16

Well it looks like Saturday before I can get my boat. Does anyone know of a common sail that fits this boat? It seems none of the sails that come with this boat are right but some should suffice. I will post some pictures of this boat as soon as I have it. This could get interesting I have never sailed before (except windsurfing) but I have been on boats my entire life. I am extremely over confident in this could get interesting. my last boat was a 28' twin engine cabin cruiser so this dinghy should be no problem. (I love setting myself up for failure). I will report back with my triumphs and failures with pics and video hopefully. Does anybody have the actual measurements for the sails? Thank you all and here we go!!!
