Commodore 26 information
 
I have inherited an Commodore 26 (maybe Commodore 269) and need information, particularly specifications. This boat was built in 1982 -- that's about all I know. Thanks--

Commodore
 
Hello,

I just purchased a Commodore 26 and am having a hard time locating any history, specs etc. on the boat. Would you mind sharing what information you have as well as any links for additional information?

Thanks in advance!

I'm looking at several in Florida now. Anything spooky about them? eg: deck/ hull joint leaks, chainplate issues, blisters. They look great for shallow sailing, but I'm sure they must slip quite a bit when close hauled. Thanks for your willingness to provide info.

Re: Commodore 26 information
 
They are truly rock-solid, quality boats. Had mine for 3 years with no trouble. The fiberglass was hand laid in Pine Island by true craftsmen using a Columbia mold. Commodore took the mold and upgraded the features below decks and a full 6' headroom. I have some great woodwork in mine. No leaks to speak of and she sails remarkably well considering the shallow draft. Keep in mind she has a full keel so that helps any slippage. Commodores are by no means a racing boat, but for a weekender you just can't beat the comfort and shallow draft.

Thanks for your help. I've sailed most of my life, live just off the St. Johns River in FL and am looking for an appropriate, shallow draft 22-26 footer. This tells me I need to check out the two Commodores I've noticed on Craigslist. Thanks again!!

progresst,
Would like to hear more about your boat, where you sail and upgrades you have made. Do you know whether sailorman321 is still sailing his 26?
