Hello everyone!

I just became the owner of an 82 DS 22. The boat seems in fairly good condition for the age. It came with a 4 sails, a VHF, a depth/speed/ trip meter, a Honda outboard and a tandem trailer for $2,000.00. I think that;s not a bad deal. If anyone has any information on what I should be on the look out for that would be great. I haven't had it off the trailer yet so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! One thing that has me totally perplexed, I can't see anyway to raise or lower the swing keel?

Re: Hello everyone!

Hi Kaj,

The swing keel trunk is in the cabin. It should look like a big hump right down the centre line of the boat, inside the cabin. On that trunk there should be a cleat with some nylon webbing made off to it. By releasing the cleat and easing (not dropping) the webbing, you should be able to lower your keel.

I grabbed some generic swing keel images off google images to give you an idea of what you are looking for, unfortunately, I couldn't find one that is specifically of a DS 22.

And welcome, my mom has a place near Minden, so I've done some sailing on Kashagawigamog.

Re: Hello everyone!

Thanks Arcb for the welcome and info. I know the winch is usually in the cabin, but not on this lady. That's why I was so confused. I did some exploring on her today and found it in the stbd cockpit locker, that's a new one me. lol

Some nice lakes up this way for sure, especially during the week. I have the boat at Lagoon City on Lake Simcoe, I pretty much grew up on Simcoe and looking forward to getting out there again.
