Need info on Chrysler 22

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello Sail Boaters ,Iam new to Sail power since I have been a power boater for 35 years .I just purchased a Chrysler 22 foot to fix up and teach my grandson to sail, what I need is anyone who knows anything about a Chrysler boat good or bad ,where to get parts from a bone yard .it has a crank up swing keel ,the big question is ,can I hang this boat from over head beams by the 2 stearn eye hooks and the 1 front bow hook or if I put a strap under it as a cradle will it crush the sides. Thanks for any info you might have . Is this boat any good as a racer?
Joe

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
The first time I ever crewed in a race was on a Chrysler 22 or 24, over 25 years ago, and we won the regatta, so I think it can be a fun racer, but, at this age it probably needs the old bottom paint stripped to make it competitive.

The availability of parts depends on what parts you need. Some parts are standardized, and can be purchased or ordered from sailnet or other marine suppliers. Parts that are specifically made for the Chrysler 22 will probably have to be fabricated. I doubt that you'll find a bone yard that has a stock of Chrysler 22s. With a little ingenuity, most parts that can't be replaced can be fabricated by the home handyman.

I would definitely not hang her from the ceiling. Without looking at them, I'd bet the two stern eye hooks and the bow hook are not designed to hold that much weight, and, if the garage or other structure only has attic space over it, it also might not be strong enough. If a ceiling isn't designed to be weight-bearing, it probably won't support the weight. If you do suspend it with straps, however, they should be positioned where there is a bulkhead inside to reinforce the boat. If properly positioned, the straps shouldn't hurt the boat.

Good luck with the project!
