Check out the groups.yahoo.com there is an olympicdolphin group you can join. Its not very active but there are lots of files in the file section including diagrams from the factory.

Basically there is a pin that goes right through the keel. If you look carfully you might see it. It's a force fit I believe and you can pound it out. Then maybe add some shims.

There is also a catalina 22 group and you can get info from there if you read between the lines. There are 100 times more catalina 22s in the world but they are very similar designs. Judging from the the descriptions of the Catalina group a little clunking when you go from tack to tack is expected.

I live in gatineau too and sail from the Aylmer boat launch.

sailingdog Just remember, on winches, the bearings get the grease, the pawls and springs only get OILED.

Olympic Dolphin 23

My buddy just bought a 1973 Olympic Dolphin 23. Break Wind will be sailed in Lake Erie from Cleveland.

We took about 2 hundred pictures the other day but now that I'm looking at them we don't have any that really show the boat. We took close ups for future reference but no real general pics. It's supposed to be nice this week so we can get some nice shots (without snow).

She's going to be a labor of love.

Priority #1: Get on the lake
The keel's going to have to be ground down and sealed with epoxy
The swing keel might need a little coaxing into position but once it's down it's down for the season
Fresh bottom paint
New running rigging
Window gaskets are shot and we'll have to figure something out to replace them.
Standing rigging is in good shape
Maybe a block here and there will have to be replaced but deck hardware seems in good condition. We pulled apart what seemed to be the worst winch and it doesn't look like it'll need more than a good cleaning and lube job.
Sand down rudder and encase in fiberglass
Probably more to come

Future Projects:
Refinish belowdecks
New electrical as it's all shot
New cushions

See you on the lake...
