Re: new owner coronado 23

What year is your Coronado? I have a 23' 1973 and it does have a head. I also have the original owners manual with all the technical information. I'd be happy to pass along any info.

I actually just bought the Coronado last fall and have only sailed it a couple of times... I love it. It is so easy to sail, is the perfect size for my family and is surprisingly easy to work on. One of the reasons that I bought it was that it included all of the original documents with the owner's manual, schematics and drawings. Having the manuals makes it MUCH easier to work on. If you would like, I can make a copy of the manual for you. Just shoot me an e-mail at kidntrope@gmail.com. That should answer all of your questions working on the boat. Good luck with your project.

Re: new owner coronado 23

We had a 73' as well, the shoal keel version. Your Coronado 23 if has a head would be correct that it is in v- berth well. The boat was designed for outboard. The only opening near stern that I remember was a dorade vent for fuel tank. We would put portable fuel tank in locker and run fuel line out dorade cowl to outboard. You need to be attentive to cracks in cabin top below mast step from compression, as this is only real problem we had with boat during ownership. You have two thru-hulls for cockpit drains. Unless previous owner added more for some reason.

Funny thing about the rudder/tiller, I just about took a hammer to mine. However, it does lift and twist out. The sucker is pretty heavy and might need two people to life and twist it just right.

There is nothing to loosen (probably not what you wanted to hear), just lay it all the way over and start lifting and wiggling. If it doesn't work send me a pic and I will see if it is the same. It took us quite a while to get it off and it was very frustrating. It seemed like it didn't fit but in the end it did lift off.
