Cape Dory 22

Hello and thanks for letting me join your site. My question is about the Cape Dory 22. After travel to destination from trailer to launch and heading out from dock; how long would you/y’all say it takes to raise mast and rig for sailing? Thanks, Dave

I didn't know Cape Dory made a yawl. Never seen it spelled y'all before. You learn something every day.

I have never set up a CD 22, but my old S2 7.0 would take me 45 minutes to an hour. That was single handed and taking my time.

Re: Cape Dory 22

I believe the CD22 is similar to the Alberg 22, and I would not want to rig that in a trailer-sailer scenario at all. I think the mast is very heavy and not something I would want to do without the assistance of a crane or travel lift. I am not sure how much the mast on the A22 weighs but the previous owner said it was 150 pounds.

Also, for some perspective, the mast on my CL16 trailer sailer is very light and easily handled by one. On my Nordica 16, same size boat but more heavy duty rig, the mast is about twice as heavy and that makes a huge difference in rigging up. Would not want to go any heavier.

What would you think of the Cape Dory Typhoon Weekender as a trailer sailer?

The Typhoon Weekender is a perfect trailer sailer and can be rigged easily and quickly. I had one for my winter boat (Nov - April) for many years - didn’t trailer it - but I know rigging is fairly simple.

Re: Cape Dory 22

I have had a Cape Dory 22 for over a decade now. It is a fairly easy boat to launch and rig. It takes us about 90 minutes to rig and launch or derig and pull. HOWEVER, it would be very difficult to do with out access to a crane or travel hoist. Where we keep our boat we have access to a crane that we use for both launching and stepping the mast. For a 22ft boat it has a remarkably heavy mast.

You could probably ramp launch it with a long tongue extension and by using the boom and topping lift as a lever to step the mast but it would not be easy.

It is a wonderful boat that would take you almost anywhere you want to go.
