1978 Chrysler 22 located in New York for sale

22' Chrysler 22

7' 9'
New York

Description: This is a great boat and I have enjoyed owning her for six years. I had her at the Saratoga Lake Sailing CLub for 4 seasons and the last two seasons I had her at the Van Slooten Marina in Port Henry on Lake Champlain. The original owner had her on Sacandaga Lake at his house for 34 years. I am the third owner. The original owner sold it to a 20 something young man in Vergenes VT in the spring of 2012, and I bought it from him summer of 2012. (I have the original bill of sale.) If you can find the review from "Practical Sailor" it will tell you just about everything that you would want to know about the boat. It is easy to sail and very forgiving. The V berth is enormous! (And comfortable even if you're over 6'.) I sailed solo often and it sails perfectly fine under main alone. Something many other boats will not do, especially when the wind is screaming. It has a kindly motion and with the keel down (4' 6") it is very solid. It's nearly impossible to bury the rail. It does not pound in chop as it has a nice hull shape and Chrysler built the hull solid! No flexing or oilcanning at all.
PLEASE READ THE REVIEW in Practical Sailor! It tells you the essentials of what you need to know. I can add or elaborate on anything else that you's want to know.

Equipment: 2012 4 cycle 9.9 Mercury long shaft bought new in 2012. Have bill of sale for motor. Added a thruster/propeller guard (Visible in the pictures). Winterized every fall with Mohawk Marine.
Fuel tank included with new fuel line fall 2017.
Replaced the original rickety motor mount with a West Marine spring loaded hevy duty mount which makes lifting the engine easy.
Sails, Main, jib, Genoa, and Spinnaker. (I have never flown the Spinnaker.)
This boat has traveler in the aft end of the cockpit, nice for sail control.
I had the Mainsail refurbished and repaired by Sail Care and they did an amazing job, the logo looks original and the "reconditioning" did wonders.
Replaced the original "hook" on the cabin top to raise the mast with a stainless hinge (In photos) which makes raising the mast easier.
I am including all of the mast raising equipment/tackle (Some is visible in the wide angle shot on the trailer.). I have raised this mast completely by myself with this equipment. It works like a charm.
I replaced the tires in 2016, possibly 1000 miles on them? I don't trailer it much.
I rebuilt the inside of the gas locker and the cockpit scuppers, it all drains well now, better than new.
Re-caulked the entire toe rail, the topsides do not leak!
Porta potti included.
Many recovered cushions (The tan ones in the pictures.) and the original ones are in fantastic shape and comfortable to sleep on.
Deep cycle marine battery.
There are many other items that go with the boat, I've just listed the main items. Basically you need a Coast Guard kit and a decent anchor and you are ready to launch!

$4999 or best offer.
I will sell the boat without the motor, $3000 firm
