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.
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.

A friend of mine bought one new in 1975 and brought it Kelowna in the fall, we sailed that boat all winter,raced it all summer, then took it to Vancouver and raced all winter down there;guess we were a little nuts ,get in the van on Fri. go to Van. race Sat.Royal Van.party ,race Sun. West Van.drive home.. I now own a Crown 34 Go figure
Welcome to the group. Lots of good info to be had here. I have been sailing on the east coast but just sold my boat. I am looking at some boats for sale/sail on the west coast now. I hope to be on the water soon but still have to get a boat and moorage.
Crown 23' cross section at keel?
Does anyone know what the hull/keel/cabin sole looks like in cross section on a Crown 23? To either side of the keel bolts the cabin sole comes up an inch or two. Is this hull to water, or is there some space in there?
Thank you in advance : )
