THX LittleSkipper.

I bought her as a project boat. Got that same feeling a guy gets in the back of the church when he is about to enter the state of matrimony! I gotta say that the Soggy Paws sagas & this forum gave me the confidence to step up.  I've been drilling thru usable information for the stuff I need to do all day. An Honorable Mention goes to the multitude of reviews that exist across the 40 years on the CSYs. Jeezus! Did you ever even meet anybody or even hear of anybody, for that matter, who didn't sing CSY praises?  This was like finding a shabby unicorn!

There was nothing in the US Navy Submarine Force that prepared me for this - except maybe giving me a respect for a dependable vessel and the cohones peludas to do it  It's good to know there are mates around out there that've been there, done that.

 I'll pass on whatever I find on the schematics.

Hi Bob

Welcome to the club!  We just bought Contessa, a 1980 44-walkthrough, last April down in Grenada. We have been working on her getting her ready to launch in January.  I am also interested in any electrical schematics you come across.   A few weeks ago we mounted some granny bars at the mast.  I sure am glad the cabin top is solid 3/8 or better solid fiberglass.   Like you said "a floating brick" that'll take care of you at sea.

Bob,

I forwarded your request to Peter, with your email address.  Hopefully he will add you to the Dropbox account soon.

General Discussion / Great Video of CSY 44 Under Sail in Heavy Weather

I posted this in the Swap Meet section, but thought it would get a wider view here...

Here's a YouTube video of a CSY 44 under sail in winds gusting to 40 knots.

The former "Tackless II" CSY 44 Walkthrough (one of the last WT's made by the factory) has been put up for sale on the east coast of New Zealand.  If anyone is interested, PM me, I can provide contact info.

Here's a great video by the owner sailing in heavy winds.  Shows you what a CSY is made of.

Cap'n Mike -

Much mahalo! Do you have a source for systems diagrams? Most important to me on the front end are the electrical system schematics. The wiring is in acceptable shape for her age, meaning it moves electrons from point A to point B, but it's been "shade tree" maintained by the last owners - wire nuts, electrical tape, single core household cabling in some areas, some dangerous & scary sh*t and absolutely unseaworthy! If I could get my hands on an elec system schematic for reference - even for the class and not the specific boat - it would go a long way in speeding up the refit. I've been searching the web but no joy, so far.

B.

P.S. - Just found the Dropbox info. Will sift thru there when I get access. I can't possibly be the first knucklehead looking for this info!

Hello Bob,

Congratulations on your purchase. I bought one from salvage and have gutted her and have her just about finished. They are built like tanks and I know you will not be sorry no matter how much work she needs.

Please feel free to holler at me anytime you need any advice. Believe me when I say I have seen every inch of mine.

Good luck.
