seagert is on a distinguished road

Just discovered this site, and have never posted before, so this should be interesting.

We inherited a 1975 Georgian 23 in 2002, and my Dad had bought it used in the early 1980's at a marina down in Brighton ON. We are delighted with it, although it suffered neglect at a marina while stored for about 15 years. 2 years ago I bought a self-loading trailer to replace the totally rusted cradle, and with the possibility of taking it out of the Muskoka Lakes and selling it. Fortunately our daughter and son-in-law have expressed huge interest in it and are willing to supply the elbow grease and sweat equity, so it's going to stay in the family.

We have always loved its performance, in light and heavy winds. "Builderson" is right - you need a 150% jib for light winds and it performs beautifully then. Top speed that we could get out of a strong wind was 6.5 knots.

We don't have any particleboard in our model - everything is fibreglass - the head liner, salon table, companionway stairs, 2 companionway covers, transom, etc. We could consistently outsail a friend's Grampian 23 with the "pop top" for the dog cabin. We've always felt it is more like a 26 footer with the poopdeck cutoff as far as handling and roominess is concerned. A huge feature is the ship's wheel, which means we don't knock off everyone's kneecaps with the tiller.

Enough said - I look forward to viewing comments on this site.
