Starwind Owners

I''ve found out that the Starwind 19 (designed by Jim Taylor) was actually sold to Precision -- who still markets it as the Precision 18. The interior trim has changed and the hardware isn''t as nice, but the fiberglass is still the same. Their Web site shows the companionway hatch being available for $150. I''ve not had to contact them for any parts -- but I''d like to hear about anyone''s experience who does.

I have a Precision 23...the people at Precision are generally great to deal with. We also have a site with message board that may be of some help.

precisionowners.com

Good luck.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Send a message via Yahoo to Brucesrq
other resources for Starwind

there are sites for starwind, but this thread is dead. I did read your article on it a tad late.

Hi,
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?
