re: spindrift 22

I am also in need of help, I bought a Spindrift 22 about 2 months ago, and have been cleaning it up and repairing some fiberglass. Specifically, on the poptop, there is a plastic pad on each side loosely held by 3 rather large machine screws. The forward poptop support tubes contact these pads and the end of these screws when folded down. I suspect there should be a bumper or cradle for the forward support tubes attached to these pads. Could anyone who has a Spindrift 22 please send me a pic of this area so I can rebuild/replace whatever should be there? Thanks in advance.

About the spindrift 22

I am looking at purchasing a spindrift 22. have not looked at it yet so i have a few questions about it before i make the commute to check it out. Is it a centerboard? if so does it have any ballast? how does it sail? Displacement? anything else i need to know about. it is a 1984 what would be a reasonable price for one in ok condition? Thank You.

I am thrilled to see other Sailing enthusiasts online.
I am considering buying a Spindrift 22 for a local source. The boat need some minor repairs. The man sailing it knows nothing about it. He took it as payment on a debt.

I have not sailed in many years and would like to know something about this model.
I would also like to find any literature on it as well.
If anyone can give me some guidance please do so.

There used to be a "spindrift owners association" online, but it provided little info. I have owned mine 8 years (1986 model), replaced trailer with tandem axle trailer w/brakes, cleaned the sails, painted the outside, replaced lifelines and thats about it. Not much to the boat, shoal keel with swing down centerboard, sails decent, no racer but fun to be on! I sail mostly in the Finger Lakes (NY), Solomons MD, and Key West, the best part of the trailer sailor is going new places! Also as a reference, I bought my Spindrift in 2001 for 3k, it needed a lot of cleaning but no structural repairs, won't any races but if your looking at a spindrift your not looking to race!
try starwinds.com/stw500.html
Good Luck and Happy sailing!

Im glad to see there are a lot of Spindrift 22 owners out there, I used to own one myself and sold it a number of years ago and would like to find it again if possible and if nothing else I would like to know its still being used and works. It was an 1984 hull number 227 at the time I owned her she was named Aerial.

Any chance of getting a copy of the manuals?
