That is not really how we like to do it here. This is an open public forum where we share knowledge with each other and leave a legacy for future sailors to learn from. Rerouting through email steals...

Re: Big Waves in Elliot Bay (Seattle)

Nobody on my boat ever gets drunk unless the boat is securely tied to the dock. If they did they would not be invited back

Re: Big Waves in Elliot Bay (Seattle)

The boat is a beautiful North American Spirit 23. I need to get some pics with her new paint job, but here is the general take http://ben.lobaugh.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Shmidt1.jpg

Re: Big Waves in Elliot Bay (Seattle)

I doubt the sail up would have made it more stable as I would not have been able to go straight into the wind.

And I will continue to go out a lot ;). The only part of "fair weather sailing" I...

Big Waves in Elliot Bay (Seattle)

Upon returning from Thanksgiving vacation today I found a marathon blocking the way to my apartment. In attempting to get around it I drove almost to the marina. Since I was close and there was a...

Re: Spirit 6.5

I have never heard of this before, and Google agrees. Are you sure it is not a Catalina 21? The older models look similar and my 23 is often mistaken for a Catalina

Re: Spirit 23 modifications

Mostly because I am traveling a lot currently? And it is more enjoyable to work outside in warm weather.

Dunno, guess it can be anytime really

Re: Spirit 23 modifications

I ROFL'd at the bomb going off WindyWay.

Maybe this next summer we get together and rebuild mine?

Re: Removing Centerboard in Winter

@tschmidty is yours wood? I do not remember mine being wood when it was looking like that. It was a couple years ago now though, but I think it was some sort of composite foamy stuff with all the...

Re: Spirit 23 keel cable conduit blocked

You should be able to use any of the standard flexible plumbing you can find at a hardware store. Talk to the plumbing department.

Re: Spirit 23 keel cable conduit blocked

The cockpit drain tubes are a common point of failure on these boats. Definitely something good to keep in mind during your inspections.

Re: Spirit 23 keel cable conduit blocked

Be careful doing this. The swing keel helps to stabilize your boat when you are going upwind. It provides righting motion. Without it there (or down) your boat will be much tippier and unstable in...

Re: Spirit 23 keel cable conduit blocked

I cut the old stuff out of mine when I had it out last. Put in a new plastic tub to relieve the strain. Unfortunately I did not take any pics of it.

I did not go to the extremes of BoatyardBoy...

Those are beautifully run lines. I had the same idea in mind for mine

Re: Spirit 23 modifications

I epoxied the cap of the bilge pump to the hull of mine. Now I can pop the pump on and off anytime I want. I do like Windyway's idea of the tray much better as it allows for backups. I eventually...

Re: sailing with dolphins

Awesome! Thanks for posting the video.

Two summers ago I had a pod of small white (or grey?) whales swim around my boat for a couple weeks. It was really neat. No video though :(.

Anyone else...

Re: Still Looking for Spirit 23 Window Frames

Bummer man. I may need to look at replacing mine soonish too. The last owner caulked all over the edges. No leaks yet, but worried about what that means. Sails and rigging first though.....

Re: Removing Centerboard in Winter

I did a similar thing with mine. The cable was not working properly after it was on the hard for painting so I put a strap around it before tossing the boat on the trailer. Worked fine

Re: spirit 23 sailing to marone point ,la.

I normally use my 130%. I love it. Is your Genoa inside or outside the lifelines with the block back? I have only been able to keep it inside mine when sailing close to the wind
