Talking Repaired My hatch

My hatch was so bad that the plastic glass was falling out. I took the pieces to Lee & Cates Glass and they made me a new one for $23.00. You can Google Grey enterprises marine for a phone number ( they are in Tampa) I fixed the locking knobs with wooden drawer pull knobs , drilled a hole in them and glued the brass feral's in. They work good. The Keel coast some real money to fix. I had it fixed in green Cove Springs in Florida. The keel had been glued in with 5200 sealant and they had to cut the keel pen with a body saw. The pen is stainless steel but the mounting plates are just steel and were rusted beyond repair. They also refinished the keel with Osfro rust killer and then they coated it with Epoxy reasons. All the new parts they made for the keel was stainless steel. The Guy said that I would be dead 50 years before that keel would fall out. That was reassuring. Happy sailing.

I spent around $2000 getting the Keel fixed ,all stainless steel hardware and pin. They had to special make the plats. Sailed it this weekend in big winds and it worked great. I am now working on fixing leaks with TL 5200. It never ends.
Have fun SEE YA.

I am looking at a Starwind 19. The owner says he "thinks" it is a 1983. My biggest concern is that the boat has no stanchions. Looking at other Starwind 19's online all have stanchions. This boat seems to have never had stanchions (no holes in deck). Is this normal for these boats? If not, what is up with this boat? How much would it cost to add stanchions? Thanks

The Starwind 190 was the first boat I ever owned all by myself...wow!

Malhuiia - you should be able to verify the year model of the boat through the HIN (Hull Identification Number) on the upper right corner of the transom. If the boat isn't where you can physically see it, have the owner do a pencil tracing of the number and email it to you - or read it over the phone. The last two numbers of the HIN indicate the year model.

Stannchions were an option when ordering the boat from the factory...don't have a clue as to cost to add...

Thanks for the info. Yes, this will be the "next boat" for us. We have lived on several (Catalina 27, Watkins 27, Gulfstar 41) while in FL and the Bahamas. Now we are landbound in Ohio (long story). We are looking for a trailerable boat, but also seaworthy for mostly lakes in this area and coastal sailing in FL and the Keys. We do have 2 children and stanchions are a real concern, both for sail management and child management. Thank you and checked out your blog...wonderful reading.

The blog hasn't been updated in a while, but will be this next week - so please check back, and thanks for the compliment!

My wife and I sailed our 190 between Miami and the Keys quite often, as well as the along the GA coast. She was a fine little boat for that and held up well, considering all we put her through!

Good luck -

I have an old Apollo 20 that has no stanchions also . A lot of the smaller boats are like that. What I did was use center lines to hold onto to go forward. I have stanchions on my Starwin 22 but they are short and not much better than no stanchions. I think adding them would coast a lot . SEE YA
