Smile Hello from Indiana

Hi, my buddy and I just bought a sailboat. It's a make I've never heard of - International Yacht Corporation, I23CR (International 23 Club Racer). We bought the boat cheap; it was sitting for several years and shows it's neglect. We've put quite a bit of work into it so far; and it's almost ready to sail. We'll have to do more work to make it more comfortable. The interior cushions were lost, so that's going to be one of the big tasks to complete.

We're planning on sailing on Lake Monroe near Bloomington, IN. We'd also like to take some bigger trips on Lake Michigan (we'll have to get those interior cushions taken care of!).

These are pictures I took the day after bringing her home. I've done a great deal of cleaning and am refinishing the teak with Cetol. I've repaired and re-rigged the mast with all new halyards and rewired the running light. I'll post more pice when she's all cleaned up.

Good luck with the rebuild.
When your all done you won't recognize her.
Lake Monroe looks like a very nice place to sail.
You can probably pack a tent and sleeping bag and than run that boat up on the beach and go camping. Should be a lot of fun.

If you ever get up to NW Indiana or SW Michigan, look us up.
We live in Porter and sail out of Holland.

Enjoy yourself.
Tim

Yep, that's 3M Wax/Restorer! It did a nice job on the hull, but the gel-coat on the deck is pretty bad. I think that we'll repaint her in a few years.


Tim: We're very interested in doing some sailing on Lake Michigan. We'd love to get into some group events or something! Got links to the places you guys sail out of?

My 1st boat was an International 23, only it had a yellow hull. It was so much fun. I sailed it to West End on Grand Bahama Island. Had a wonderful trip and stayed 2 weeks. From Ft. Lauderdale it only took 10 hours. I learned alot on this boat. Your going to have a great time. Mine had Honda 10 HP on it. Yep, lots and lots of fun.
