Re: Jonathan t Jansen I’ve got a 23’ 1976 kells swing keel
Gratz on getting your first boat, do you have her in the water yet? I own an 1981 Kells 23 Coaster, basically the same boat with a fixed shoal draft keel. They are pretty basic but plenty of room in the cockpit, easily fits 4 without being crammed. I've put more time and money than I'll ever get out of her, but that's the way I am with my stuff, and I have to admit, for a 31 year old small boat, she looks great, and I've had people pay me compliments. She doesn't sail bad, not fast, but if I really wanted fast, I'd have a power boat. Even my friend with 2 big boats, one 36 footer and one 42, likes her. I'm on the coast of Maine and she just went in the water yesterday for the season. If I can help with any info, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck.
