We have a Starwind 223 that we sail in Lake Michigan. Happy to learn of this site.

There's a company in the Tampa, Florida area called Foss Foam, Inc. You may want to try them; they're one of the best resources around.

Starwind 22 Rudder Replacement

I have just acquired a Starwind 22 from an acquaintance. Long story short, it has no rudder. The rudder is lost and the top gudgeon is sheared off. I can get a rudder from the Resale shop and replace the fittings, but cannot find any information on the Rudder size - height and width. Any info out there?

lakerunner There is a starwind forum site that has some of the specs you can look at as well as start up posts. I have found some very interesting facts about the starwind since joining that forum as well.

the national spindrift assoc. web site has a forum where you can get a lot of information. (starwinds dot com)

I have a starwind 19 that I have just purchased it is in great shape. thankfully I'm not going to have to do much work to.

My 22 has a swing Keel and I had a boatyard replace the keel pin and plates and also the cable. The keel cable has a clevis at the bottom end that attaches to the trailing edge of the keel with a bolt though it. If the boat is on a trailer you may be able to let the keel down far enough to see it and replace it. On the back stay I don't think that it has to be real stiff, you could have 3 or 4 inches play, that's where you could pull on it and move it 3 or 4 inches , not sagging 3 or 4 inches. The back stay helps keep the mast stable , it also takes the strain off the mast step. Hope that was some help.

smillinjack There are only four stanchions on my 22 starwind with 1/4 inch cable that is coated with vinyl ,it has a quick release that hocks into the stern pulpit. If you plan to sail offshore they may be handy . I will have to look in the cabin and see if I see the hardware below deck. Good luck with your boat.

Starwind 19 Stanchions

In 1982 they were an option for an additional $325 which is about $782 today. This assumes you already have the bow pulpit. My 1986 Starwind 19 has them and they are still solid and immobile.

smillinjack I have an old Apollo 20 that has no stanchions also . A lot of the smaller boats are like that. What I did was use center lines to hold onto to go forward. I have stanchions on my Starwin 22 but they are short and not much better than no stanchions. I think adding them would coast a lot . SEE YA
