I recently bought a 1986 starwind 223 that is in good shape for it's age.
Solid hull, good sails, etc. Although, one thing I needed to repair were the portholes, I found that Beckson still makes the same portholes, although they have been improved and the fiberglass holes needed to be routered about 1/4inch bigger. The other problem was the positive wire from the battery to the switch board was pinched under the floorboard causing a draw on the battery until it coroded compleatly off! I hope this imformation helps anybody else. I'm sure there will be other problems that I'll have to fix, but
I think the Starwind 223 is a great boat and We plan on sailing this summer
out of the Saco River and along the southern Maine coastline. Does anyone
know how many years this boat was in production?
