Still working on sailing - help identify this boat please

Hi All,

I had a rough start with my first project boat. I'm still holding on to hope that I'll get my first sailboat going...

Since my last post in 2010, I met a marina owner that gave me boat that didn't require as much work as my first boat. Boat #2, Windsong, only needed a rudder to get going. I managed to build a temporary rudder and have been enjoying some laughably windless days on Georgian Bay. Even floating around is something to look forward to though.

I want to construct or purchase a suitable rudder, but I don't know where to begin. It might help if I knew what make/model of boat I have.

Post the Hull ID Number off the transom. That should help determine the make.

Edit: Should your shrouds on the port side cross?

Didn't ever notice anything on the transom, but 721-6 is there, although the numbers are all backwards, which I suspect is normal.

You're right, they were crossed, but I fixed that same day...Raising a mast is tough when people with tired arms are shouting at you lol once it was secure switching was easy.

Re: Still working on sailing - help identify this boat please

To help us identify your boat look around for any kind of name plate or numbers on the inside of the transom or stamped on the outside of the transom. Tell us where the boat is and give us a length and let us know if it has a centerboard or a fixed keel.
Sometimes there is even a metal plate somewhere in the cabin that gives a hint as to its origin.
Oh, and if there is any kind of logo on the mainsail that might be a clue.

kind regards,

Hi SkiprJohn

I'll take another look during daylight, but I took a look previously but didn't notice any markings.

That being said, I didn't notice the 721-6 right above the engine mount.

Swing keel, 23' in length.

Is it a transom hung rudder? If so, anyone would probably work off another boat, Sat a Catalina 22 or something like that.
