bashmaki, i picked up a 79 23' in Texas for 3200 in usuable shape, 3600 if you count the gas used to go get it, added some paint here and there, touched up the brightwork and had her in the gulf 3 times in 3 footers with the swing keel stuck up with no issues, awesome boat. She will almost sail herself. The only complaint is the amount of beer she consumes in a day.

Windyway - wierd, I did not get an email that there was a response posted until today, 2 pages of comments later....

She is WN9298JR

I am assuming when you say Blaine is not too far you mean that it is pretty far. If you are up near the border like Google thinks you are then it would take you a couple days to get to me. I picked her up in Everett and I made the trip to Bremerton in a few days making about 5 hour hops.

Oops, I gave the wrong number then

mouser370 looks like you've got your work cut out for you. Are you in Washington State by chance?

project boat

I have pressure washed it since these pics and she looks much better, The original question was based on the age of the boat where did the winch for the center board go

Weird, I swear I replied to this earlier today and the last couple items in this thread are missing for me now.

mouser370 - The winch on my '77 is in the port locker in the cockpit. It is closest to the cabin on the right side of the locker. I will _try_ to remember to take a pic for you this evening (bad memory. forgot my good memory(phone) at home). These boats seem to have an issue with breaking the centerboard cables. Too much tension. I think windyway designed a fix for it.

windyway - Could you provide us with drawings or a pic of your alterations? I will need to do that on mine too. My cable is currently broken with the centerboard down.

has any one got any info on the NA 23. Ive got the owners manual, but I need info on the center board winch location, the location of the galley and what composed the galley, the wiring panel location etc. the boat is a total wash on the inside and any info available on this boat is appreciated , go to page 18 to see photos of the boat and you can see what a challenge it will be

mouser370, do you have berths that extend the length of the cockpit on both sides? My '77 in starboard side only. That would explain why you have not been able to find a winch in the port cockpit locker. If this is still on the trailer you should be able to start from the center board and look for a hole. Send a piece of wire through the hole and you will find where your winch should be. There should be a hole and mounting brackets(or at least holes) where the winch is as well.
