hi ....my first post!
ok...I just picked up a SJ26.....the previous owner nailed a rock with her and managed to bust off the tube that the centreboat winch attatches to ....anyone ever dealt with this? I figure I can remove the stub of the post { it is bolted to the sole}...weld a new pipe onto it ...and put everything back the way it was ....just wondering if anyone has had to do this ...and how it worked out


thanks
Richard

Sorry for the slow response. I missed your post. Not to many San Juan 26 around. On my sj26 the tube and base are threaded 1 1/2" galvanized pipe. Should be available at Lowes, home depot, or any plumbing supply.

Ours is a 1977. Bought it 3 years ago. We are on the Ohio river in southern Indiana . I have basically had the boat completely apart so if you have any questions just ask. I also have the owners manual if you need a copy.

Hi Richard and Jason, and the rest of the community.
I too am newly into a San Juan 26. Mines got a fixed keel and a single cylinder diesel. Any experience with, or knowledge about this model?
Does your manual cover this model? I am very interested to see a manual, and learn more about this boat, thru more methods than just the hard way. ;). Lol.

Welcome @Giminey to the forum of sail boat owners helping each other. Got like a guy who shares a joke in his first post and then laughs at his joke about him. :beer:

Depending on the motor you can often find a manual using a google search for the specific motor. Unlike a car motors for boats are purchased items by the boat builder and then added to the boat.
You may find someone has uploaded a correct manual in San Juan Sailboats

Good luck with your new boat. And post a picture of your new friend. That way I we see you in the water we can blow a horn and salute you.

Hi jssailem.
Thanks for the warm welcome, and the link to fall down. They’re all rabbit holes aren’t they?

Been poking around a bit, and this posting is the most active I’ve found so far.

Here are the pics from finding her for sale, and hooking her up the first time to my rig. Managed to get home safely, and am now getting ready to give her a thorough work over.

Haven‘t stepped the mast yet, but that’s going to be my first project now that I’ve got her in my yard. Make sure all the standing and running rigging’s good, Then verify all the through hull fittings, see if I can get the motor on line, then its gonna be straight into the drink.

Ill be looking for friends out there in the Sound.

She is a good looking boat.
The fun is just beginning.
I’ll be looking for her on the water. Here’s a picture of my Hadley. Taken two years ago.
