Re: Cortez 16

Thanks Socal. I was able to find that and the nice little pdf downloadable brochure which is great but that's it. Who knows if they even came with an owners manual. If they did though there must be one in somebody's garage or office some where. It's not like you need one but I would love to have one.

Just curious..
Was wondering how you got that number (106).

I spoke to one of the original partners in the company a while back and he couldn't remember.

Thanks.

Re: Cortez 16

Another partner owns Lynn's sailboat in Houston. I took mine by there when I first bought it. He told me about the production, building, some concerns he had back then etc..... He also told me he thought 106 was the last one. I have 102.

Re: Cortez 16

well I picked her up yesterday morning and took her out yesterday afternoon and she motors fine under power there was a wonderful wind yesterday of sustained 15 knots even a little bit much for me I am certain. so I motored up wind and anchored into the wind and set the sail. as soon as I was done rigging the sails the wind died completely. My first sail in 20 years and I moved about 60' in 15 min. at the end of the day my kids and I motored to the boat launch where the wind kicked up to about 20 knots making a routine trailering a 45 min ordeal. My 8 yo daughter lost her hat. +30 min. The motor won't idle so I had to use a line to draw her onto the trailer+30 min. The kids made an awesome crew even though we didn't arrive home until 30 minutes after bedtime with homework still to do. It was a great day. I am already hooked there is no saving me now.

Re: Cortez 16

Well I discovered my first issue. The hull has a crack in it where the swing keel drops through. When I learn to post pics I will show you. Should be a basic repair however since this is such a high stress area is there a better than original way to reinforce it. I would guess the damage was caused from the swing keel dropping violently or side loading a deployed keel in heavy sailing or running aground. I will take a better look this weekend. The good news is no leaks inside the boat.
