I am looking at a Chrysler 22 that has been neglected. I dont mind the clean up and small repairs that it needs but would like to know how she sails. She also needs new sheets but I can get it for a song. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Just a side note: For the last year I have had the sailing itch.....Dont know where it came from or why but I see no cure other than learning to sail. Have read all that I could read "Which has now become my hobbie". Would this boat be sufficient for learning?

I have a Chrysler 26, I believe her to be a good sailboat. Has a lot of room and reasonably quick.

If you would like to chat with other C22 owners check out this website

Nice heavy boat with lots of room below, could sleep 5, v-berth on it is bigger than most 25-27 footers I am looking at. Also good stowage on a boat that size. Much heavier and stable than the Catalina 22, but I know someone who races and beats C22s with his. Cockpit not so roomy especially with the tiller swing, more than 2 will have to sit people on the rail or low side.

It is a fun capable trailer sailor. Expect around 5000 lbs fully loaded on trailer.

I owned a 26 with sail drive for more than 10 years and loved it. Did much of my basic sail training on a 19 Chrysler Buccaneer which was great for day-sails.

Chrysler made them sturdy and many of them are still in use by clubs and individuals. The wonderful Excise Tax of the 70's killed the company's boat division off as it did most of the US's smaller builders and some large ones. Can see similar things occurring now.

there are a couple on Craigslist in the Appleton, WI area. I was going to look at them, but found mine in Iowa, so I'm ready to go. The two in WI were in various need of repair. One was $1500 and the ohter $2400. Neither had galley stoves, but one had a wheel steering modification.

Edit: Never mind, I misread your post to say you were looking for one, rather than at one.
