Starwind Owners

In the big storm we had on August 3 in Monmouth County my 1983 Starwind 19 sank at her mooring. She has been raised and suffered no structural damage. The sliding hatch cover is missing, so I''ll have to get a replacement.

Does anybody know of a 19 that is no longer sailable that I could buy a hatchcover from. My top companionway board is also missing, since it was attached to the hatchcover with a padlock.

My boat was in excellent condition, so I would like to get it going again as soon as I can. Everything in the interior was ruined by the water, but those are easy to replace.

My Starwind is in Red Bank, NJ.

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.

The trailer I got with my 18 was an E Z Loader M 4.8 1350#

Starbrd,

I''m so sorry to hear about your boat. I live in Monmouth County as well, although my Starwind is in Brick. I had heard through the grapevine that someone nearby had lost their boat. I''m glad you were able to raise it. I don''t know about any hatch covers for sail, but I might be able to find you a companionway board. I''ll check around. Did your boat break loose from the mooring?

I would love to get any info you have.
I just spent 1250.00 (no trailer; no motor)
on a 223. The glass is in pristine shape.
I''m a cabinetmaker so the wood is not a problem. Please help w/ info

If the boat even floats you got a great deal. I have a 223 also. It was in great shape with a good motor and a fair trailer for 5400.

Hi,

I almost forgot to look at this board. My boat is almost ready except for the hatch cover. I would like to take a look at your hatch cover, measure it and take some pictures. Would that be possible?

Please email me at hsilbiger@ieee.org or call 732 542 3227.

Thanks for the trailer info Starbrd

on another note for all the Starwind 19 owners, I have a mainsail that never seems to raise all the way up the mast (since I bought it) "something" inside the luff is taught, but the actual cloth stays wrinkled and the sail looks sloppy. I thought maybe the rope inside the luff had shrunk (does a rope luff really have a rope??) but someone at the dock suggested that the sail''s downhaul was engaged. Not sure if this sail has one or where it would be. Any thoughts/help??

Thanks!
Bryan

I have the following on the Starwind 223: Boat Check review reprint from Sailor Inc. (inc. diagrams & specs) and faint but readable copy of rigging manual. Happy to share & interested in anything I don''t have.
Owned our 223 (first boat) for 1 year, still new but learning. My niece has a 22.
One note on the pop top: I would not trust the cleat to hold it up. It''s heavy enough to cause serious injury if it falls. I use a pair of extending LOCKING rod with rubber tips which fit into the hatch grooves. Found them in the paint department at Menards, made by Mr Longarm P.O. Box 377, Greenwood, Missouri 64034 or www.mrlongarm.com. They are called Smart Lok model 7704

I''m looking for one also.
