Re: Need Help rigging a Macgregor 22

Amoungst other things, I am a light sport aircraft mechanic and have a nifty fiber scope that I use to look at places on an aircraft that you can not see otherwise. If you do not find a sail mechanic, perhaps in a week or so let me know and I can bring you my scope and we can take pictures of the cable where it connects to the KEEL. I believe it would fish in through the same hole as the winch cable. We can look for fraying and such, and take photos for records.

Re: Need Help rigging a Macgregor 22

Nothing was wrong the last time I sailed it, but I have never checked it for wear, or lubed it and I know there are several things that can be bad; cable, bolts etc. I need to fi d someone here who can do that.

Re: Need Help rigging a Macgregor 22

Hey Jeff, I'm so sorry that Mary is in conflict today. I am ordering wire to replace my backstay. Next I need to have someone look at my keel. There is a lot to look at, but I'm sure it is probably necessary. I am also looking for a small motor. I think I'll get the Suzuki 6 for 1400 hundred. Hope Mary is feeling better.

Well, I am a brand new user. just registered today, so yea, probably not on the list yet.

My wife Mary is back in the hospital today as she battles cancer. Frequently we go to Barnes Jewish in St Louis. Today she is in the VA hospital because of blood chemistry problems.

As soon as she gets over this stuff, I would love to come and sail with you. Have you called Macgregor yet to see if the part is available directly from them? If not, I would imagine we could fabricate it but working with sheet stainless is difficult.

Re: Need Help rigging a Macgregor 22

Hey Jeff! I got my boat down here from St. Louis and found the backstay broken; there was no accident. Most of my sailing has been done at Carlyle Lake in Carlyle, Il, on other boats than mine. So I am on my own for the first time without support. I have not sailed Norfork ,but have a beautiful view of it from my new log home. Can't wait! I think it will be tricky because there are a number of turns and direction changes. Come sail it with me!

Re: Need Help rigging a Macgregor 22

My wife and I also retired to Arkansas. We have a Macgregor 22 and were just thinking of Northfork. Have you sailed on the lake much? Anyway, how did your break? Did your mast fall? Anyway, that is a stainless tang that is attached by a single stainless bolt on the aft bulkhead. Is there a place in St. Louis that might have it? We travel there frequently.
