Re: Starwind 19. Lead shot in bilge?

I know this is an old thread. Everything comes full circle. I just bought another Starwind 19. I loved that little boat. I have two kids now, 3 and 4. When they were born I couldn't justify marina fees for a few years of minimal use, so I sold the Beneteau First 235 that I had. This one was a decent deal, and in better shape than my previous one. I do have a few projects ahead of me, but it's sailable as is.

To your question, I read of one capsizing while either at a dock or on a mooring, I'm not sure. A gust was reported at 140 mph. Generally in my experience the boat rounds up pretty gently if over powered. I do plan on adding a spinnaker eventually. My only grip is that my local racing club has a 22ft minimum. Maybe when the kids are older I'll get a j27 or 29, but for the next few years we'll be enjoying this little boat, and bring it back up to top notch.
