Single axle trailer? You don't need that BIG a truck...maybe you can borrow one. If the price is right (or free!), go for it!

Re: What the heck am I doing?

Yeah AZGUY a mast is a concern. Im not sure if they can be cut to length or not. I have the broken one.
Ive found a fey but I'm not sure of the height for a 223 I think I read they were around 28' or so.

And yeah Jim, a single axle! Im thinking an old silverado maybe. They are all over here for 1800 bucks.
But yeah thanks! I think I will go for it. I appreciate your encouragement!

Hi Matt, If you've got the mast, they can sometimes be repaired. You might want to ask on the Trailer Sailor BB. They got a lot of folks who are knowledgeable about such things and a few Starwind owners as well. The Trailer Sailor

Let me start out by saying I'm not a doctor, but I have a friend who takes ginger for motion sickness. Ask your doctor, it may be a way to have a more enjoyable 2 week at the start of each cruise. Good luck.

I've been working on the Starwind now for some time in my driveway. Putting it back together. My dexterity has picked up considerably and I can climb around that thing like a spider monkey. Well, a clumsy one any ways. Really glad I bought it I've learned so much. Mostly about wood screws and torque pressure and glue and thru-hulls and...
Anyways by the time I'm done with her I'll be much the wiser. The important thing is I'm having a blast! Trying to keep in mind to not get too detailed as I am trying to get it in to the water this year. Sheesh. There is a concept.

Re: What the heck am I doing?

Woah very cool to see you getting things done on the Starwind. The 223 is a great boat. you (may) be able to fudge a mast for it with a Catalina 22 mast, but you will THEN need custom rigging (shrouds/stays) to fit the boat. Of course the plus side is you'll be able to use Catalina 22 sails then (which are easier to find used). Mast height might be close enough to make it work with the original starwind sails too (looks like the Starwind is a fractional - smaller jib) so it'll fit on the masthead rig of the Catalina 22... but the height of the Starwind main might not work with the shorter overall catalina rig.

Either way, welcome to the insanity.

That Catalina 36 is likely closer than you think.

Thanks! I have a catalina 22 mast I picked up. It's totally bare! Still worth having if this 223 mast doesn't weld up. The catalina mast is six inches shorter. The Starwind mast snapped off right at the light. I'll lose 3" cutting her and running an insert so I'll have to move the boom Down a hair maybe. Keep ya posted.
