urbanhermit I purchased the boat, we are very happy. One question though, the main sail is a little "sticky" when hoisting. Is dry lubing the track on the mast something that is recommended?

urbanhermit the interior. Seems all the surveyers fly south in this area as well.haha.

Faster There's bound to be a chance of some bushing wear after all these years, but that's not fatal. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless a survey turns up a structural issue with the blade or the stock itself.

Are you nearby? I may know this boat......

urbanhermit is the rudder control through the hull more prone to have problems then a transom mounted rudder? seems to to fill up the cockpit a bit more than a transom mount for sure.

Faster These boats are essentially scaled-down Cal25s - we haven't owned one but I know of one that was owned by some acquaintances.. it seemed to serve them well. As ever, with boats of that vintage do a real good inspection and a proper survey if the initial inspection doesn't show up anything fatal.

They won't be lightning quick but today's standards, but for gunkholing around the Gulf Islands as a starter it would be fine, if a bit cramped and essentially 'camping cruising'.

Mid 70's Crown 23 question

Has any one owned or sailed a Crown 23' manufactured in victoria BC, in the mid seventies? I am curious to how they handled.
thanks for your time.
