Starwind 19 Stanchions

In 1982 they were an option for an additional $325 which is about $782 today. This assumes you already have the bow pulpit. My 1986 Starwind 19 has them and they are still solid and immobile.

There are only four stanchions on my 22 starwind with 1/4 inch cable that is coated with vinyl ,it has a quick release that hocks into the stern pulpit. If you plan to sail offshore they may be handy . I will have to look in the cabin and see if I see the hardware below deck. Good luck with your boat.

My 22 has a swing Keel and I had a boatyard replace the keel pin and plates and also the cable. The keel cable has a clevis at the bottom end that attaches to the trailing edge of the keel with a bolt though it. If the boat is on a trailer you may be able to let the keel down far enough to see it and replace it. On the back stay I don't think that it has to be real stiff, you could have 3 or 4 inches play, that's where you could pull on it and move it 3 or 4 inches , not sagging 3 or 4 inches. The back stay helps keep the mast stable , it also takes the strain off the mast step. Hope that was some help.

There is a starwind forum site that has some of the specs you can look at as well as start up posts. I have found some very interesting facts about the starwind since joining that forum as well.

the national spindrift assoc. web site has a forum where you can get a lot of information. (starwinds dot com)

I have a starwind 19 that I have just purchased it is in great shape. thankfully I'm not going to have to do much work to.

Starwind 22 Rudder Replacement

I have just acquired a Starwind 22 from an acquaintance. Long story short, it has no rudder. The rudder is lost and the top gudgeon is sheared off. I can get a rudder from the Resale shop and replace the fittings, but cannot find any information on the Rudder size - height and width. Any info out there?

There's a company in the Tampa, Florida area called Foss Foam, Inc. You may want to try them; they're one of the best resources around.
