Crown 23'

Well, looks like I'm the only Crown owner here so may as well be the first to start a thread. I bought a Crown 23' last year and am loving it. Just in the midst of replacing the winches and will be out sailing in no time! I sail it in the Vancouver area.

Re: Crown 23'

My friend just bought a 23' Crown Sailboat. Does anyone have an owners manual for this boat?. I have also information for the person who owns a Crown sailboat. Crown was designed by William Lapworth. He was also the designer of Cal Sailboats; built by Calgan Marine of Vancouver. I have however looked for the Calgan Marine and was not successful in finding the Marine. I got this information from a person on Craigs list; who was selling his Crown sailboat.

Re: Crown 23'

Welcome! I have a boat that had a limited amount built and have found it difficult to get much info or help in working on it. I have a Del Rey 24, 1965. and really like it. Good sailing to you.

I don't know whether you looked on SailBoat Data, but they have a nice write up here: Sailboats built by Calgan Marine Ltd. (CAN) by year on
