Re: Coronado 25

my mast measures 28'4"(step to top). Max luff of main - 26'(20" of life rails to clear boom + + 4" from top to halyard block). Most likely there is noway to win a race with this mast . Im getting on some major repairs(sending hull down, designing and building new rudder, center board repair). Trying to get info on getting CB out. Im sure there is a pivot bolt somewhere. Key word is "somewhere". So let me know if anybody knows how to get it out. Also let me know if anybody attempted to redesign rudder with success. I found original rudder pretty much useless in high winds no matter what your course is.
PS: BTW is there anyone parting C25 out(private or boatyard) in FL. Will b happy to get my hands on better/missing parts.

Re: Coronado 25

I have recently purchased a 68' C-25. It is currently in Idaho and I will be traveling over there in late March or early April to pick it up. I got it from a longtime friend of mine for $1500.00. Boat includes a lot of little extras, motor, main, 2 jibs and a spinnaker. According to my friend, it has been well taken care of. Boat has been rewired, two of the winches upgraded to self-tailing, bottom done with 4 coats of antifouling. Didnít hurt that itís been in fresh water all this time. I would appreciate hearing from readers about upgrades and modifications to their Coronados. I will attempt to post some pics when I get the chance. Thanks!

Re: Coronado 25

Is the fin keel encapsulated? I'm looking at one in light of my failed effort to acquire an Islander 28. There's one for sale and it looks clean. I'll see her Monday.

No, it's a bolt-on keel.

Re: Coronado 25

Being new to sailing (I just took classes in the past several months), this will be my first boat.

Is it safe to say that there should be a fairly dry bilge, since this boat has an outboard?

And would anyone recommend a survey for a boat thats in the $1k range?

...

if thats what they tell you, they dont know much about boats.... that is a fairly solid little boat, and treated right, you should be able to go about where you please in it, providing your not considering the southern ocean

Re: Coronado 25

Old thread... But it is alive just like the old Butler 25's. The Solitaire is a '69 Hull from Portsmouth VA Hull# 1194 which we have refit and sailed from Deltaville Va to Boot Key Harbor Fl in the last year. So much for you can't get there from here...

Eventual destination is back to Bocas del Toro Panama next year or two. Couple of sites anyone with, or thinking to buy a C-25. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Coronado25/info A yahoo group dedicated to Coronado 25 owners, and sailFar.net a site dedicated to "small boats, long distances". In addition you can head over to S/V Solitaire Sailing Off The Edge | Home to follow the past and future voyages of the Solitaire.... going where many have gone before.

In my humble opinion, a solid little boat, cheap (cause there are so many still around) and sea worthy. With a few upgrades, they are worthy offshore boats as long as you are not hung up on the bigger-is-better syndrome.

Remember Hugo Vihlen crossed the Atlantic in a 5'-4" sailboat. Of course he did say afterwords... "I don't know who named them swells. There is nothing swell about them. They should have named them awfuls"

"If the wind will not serve, lay to the oars"
