    Keep the Precision-23 or buy the O'day 26?

    Thanks to everyone's reply. I do enjoy my P-23 and have just raced it for the first time. It was quick around the course but, the S2's were quicker. Previously, I raced/crewed on another boat. Truly, the only reason I've considered the O'day 26 is I thought I'd gain headroom and the O'day...

    Keep the Precision-23 or buy the O'day 26?

    I've owned the 1990 Precision 23 for 8 years and like the boat. It's in great shape, always stored indoors. My wife and I use it most weekends and sleep fairly comfortably on it. I built a pull out addition for the port settee which works very well for me. Wifey is in the v-berth. Now, a...

    Lemon juice

    I'm in fresh water but, I've found that Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover works wonderfully. I just spray it on wait a minute and wipe it off. There's very little runoff and it seems to be easier to clean with subsequent applications. It's inexpensive (WalMart) and comes in a spray bottle. I...

    Boomkicker size and install Precision 23

    It's my understanding that the 00750 is the correct size Boomkicker for the P23. Has anyone installed a Boomkicker on their P23 and is there any tips/cautions to the installation? Also, I have a Bimini from Ameriseam on my P23. Should I anticipate any problems with clearance? Thanks, Gene

    Camp/Cruising with a P15 or P185, yes??

    Have you looked into the Precision 21 or 23? You'll have the room you want and all the performance you'll need. I own a Precision 23 and couldn't want for more! I've spent weekends on her and have done a great deal of daysailing. She easy to sail, safe and stable. I'm planning to retire in...

    135 genoa vs. standard 110 jib?

    I'm setting up my 1990 Precision 23 with a new roller furler. Will a 135 genoa give me much better light wind performance than the standard 110 jib I currently own? I've thought about a 150 but, the cars and tracks are on the cabin roof (standard position in 1990) rather than on the deck and I...

    buying '81 Hunter 22!

    Thanks a lot Capt Strain for your reply. I think the Hunter is an excellent choice. Now, if I had the 8 cyl. 4Runner, I'd be in business. Its towing capacity is 7000 lb. I will check the 4Runner forum. Thanks again, Gene
