Yes, from my understaing, the Starwindd 223 was created by Wellcraft after they bought the Starwind 22 from Chrysler. Mine is a 1985 Starwind 223 (I think this was the first year they made the 223)

Cool, we have basically the same boat! Does your''s have the popup cabin top? How do you secure it? There seems to be a fitting of some sort on the underside the cabin top, but we can''t find (or don''t have) the proper gizmo to keep up the top. We improvise and use a bungee cord with a hook at the end to wrap the cord around the boom when anchored to keep the top up.

Yes, Our boat has a swing open poptop that is hinged towards the front of the boat(Does this sound like your boat)You slide the cabin top back, and then the top hinges open. Ours has a cleat in the middle of the underside of the top, that we cleat a rope to , and then cleat the other end to a cleat on the mast. We have considered getting gas lifts to put on the sides to hold it up.

Yes, that''s my boat for sure. Here''s another link for the Starwind 223.

It''s not my boat, but I''ve got the same one, with basically the same color scheme.

More info on the 223:

For the few Starwind 19 owners (I have an ''85) I was wondering if anyone had any pictures/specs, etc. on their trailers. I''ve had a hard time purchasing a trailer for my slip-bound boat and I''m commisioning someone to build one. Also, I seem to have water run off the deck "into" the rub rail and some leaks inside. Do I need to totally remove and caulk? Should water be going under/into the rub rail at all? Thanks for any info!

I have a Spindrift 19. I think the mold for the Starwind became the Spindrift before becoming the Precision 18.

Anyway, I have the same water concern that you do.

Precision may be a trailer possibility for you.

Regards, Phil

The ones I have seen up close here in the mid-west, and on-line in other areas seem to be going for $5000 to $6500 depending on shape and equipment.

I have a Spindrift 24. Nobody seems to know much about them, and I haven''t run across any others. The one site I found didn''t have much info. Anybody out there know any of their history, other owners, etc?

The Starwind is an excellent boat. I have a 22'' 1985, and it had been pretty neglected when I bought. However, it cleaned up beautifully and is a very forgiving boat for a novice sailor. She turns on a dime and is very roomy. The cockpit seems more spacious than on comparably sized boats and the boom is higher, so no need to worry about getting hit if you''re sitting down. Mine was $2250, which included the original outboard and sails, which were all in good condition. An extra bonus was a brand new spinnaker. You''ll be very happy with this boat. Feel free to email me with any questions. Good luck!
