help with santana 22

well i hope i am in the right place for this i was givin a 1969 santana 22 this boat was sold to a buddy of mine at a lien sale and then he gave it to me when he left the state what im getting at here is that i am not going to be getting any info from previous owners so i thought the fine folks here could lend a hand

my question is what do i need to make my boat sailable? now i know that with out seeing her you cant give any advise at all so here is what i would like i would like for some one to come aboard and show/tell me what i need to fix/replace i am berthed in san mateo ca at coyote point marina

so here are some of my concerns one the boom there is a couple of blocks and cleats yet there is now lines on the boom or the main sail (halyard, main sheet, topping lift, and boom vang are accounted for) i am thinking that there should be an outhall reef lines and maybe a cunningham the main sheet is in need of some serious help (shackles? rerouting line? etc)

well i think that is a good place to start for now thank you for any help you can give

Randejo, the Santana 22 is a really nice little boat; I've sailed in them but am no expert :-( However, there is a good yacht club at Coyote point; drop in there and see if anybody would like to help out. Otherwise, a few minutes down the road is Redwood City. There are a number of Santana's in the harbor, the sailing school there has a few, and the Sequoia Yacht club has a couple of them for members. So all in all there are many examples to look at, and a fair amount of local expertise.

You may also want to look at Santana 22 Home, or just google the boat.

It's not so much a matter of what size motor for the bay, but of what size motor your boat can safely carry.

A 22' boat won't need much to push her around. I learned to sail in J22's (boy, could those boats point!), and I always thought that even a little 9.9hp outboard would push those things like jet skis. You could probably go with a 6 or even 4 hp outboard and do just fine.

I would go with a six versus a four horsepower. A four might work for most conditions but that extra two horses is really worth it when you need it.

I had a Victory 21 with a British Seagull (about 1 gull power) on SF Bay for years. A little 5hp Honda would be more than enough for a Santana 22. A 2hp model would probably be enough 95% of the time; 100% of the time if you have a boat-towing policy. One of those little Torqeedo electric outboards would probably be fine also.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

i like the sound of the smaller lighter motor. the guy i got the boat from left behind a 1955 johnson seaking 10hp i think. but alas the dude didnt have the right tank for it. those old motors got that dual line pressurized tank. so far been a fairly difficult thing to find online.

I can gaurantee the boat needs a new bottom. It certainly will need to have the bottom cleaned, and on a frequent basis, if you don't want to be dragging a vegetable garden around with you.
