Com-Pac 19 MK III, 1989

  • Draft: 2' shoal keel
  • Beam: 7'
  • LOA: 20' 1"
  • Ballast: 800# (encapsulated concrete)
  • Displacement: 2000#
  • Air Draft: 25'
  • Engine: 1989 Evinrude/Johnson 8hp 2-stroke
  • Trailer: Factory aluminum single-axle, good tires, including spare

    The boat is in its second season following a complete 3 year refit. I removed all hardware and brightwork and stripped the boat down to the bare hull.

    I painted the boat inside and out (hull was not repainted, it didn't need it, but dull faded brown cove stripe was repainted in Hunter Green with a 1/8" gold accent stripe)

    All teak was stripped to bare wood and refinished with 3 coats Sikkens Cetol and 2 coats Cetol gloss. Teak that was visibly damaged or cracked was replaced (hand rails, eyebrow and a few other pieces)

    All hardware was rebedded with 3M 4000 adhesive/sealant

    I hand painted the transon for a faux wood look and have received numerous unsolicited positive comments about it.

    I custom made new oak hatch boards and rails and inset a brass butterfly. I routed the boat name ("Zen") in the center hatch board. The original board was one piece. I made the new one in 3 pieces for easier storage and handling. I moved the padlock hasp to starboard after banging my head on it once too often and made a custom groove for it in the hatchboard rail so it is flush when open.

    I bought a new, lighted bulkhead mounted compass and installed it in the footwell below the companionway.

  • I installed a new bow light as the old one was crazed and cloudy.
  • I added a proper topping lift from the masthead to the boom to replace the original short piece of wire that fastened the boom to the backstay
  • I added a tiller tamer and a installed new hawse pipe cover.
  • The boat has 4 bronze opening ports in the cabin and a large aluminum Bomar hatch with tinted glass on the foredeck.
  • Working jib with furler and main sail are both in very good to excellent condition.

    The boat has a bimini top with an aluminum frame that mounts on adjustable rails outboard of the cockpit coaming. I've never used it but it's in great shape.

  • The boat comes complete and ready-to-sail with 4 life jackets, fire extinguisher, emergency flare kit, handheld air horn, marine radio, porta-potty, whisker pole, CQR style anchor and rode that fits on roller on bowsprit, single burner Origo non-pressurized alcohol stove, insulated cooler with molded drink holders that fits in V-berth notch, and your choice of charcoal or LP gas rail mounted grill.
  • Like all Com-Pac 19s, the boat sails very flat and can easily handle winds of 18 - 20 kts. without reefing. It sails equally well with jib only or reefed main only in higher winds. It moves well in light air and points surprisingly well despite its shoal draft and no centerboard. This boat can get into almost any gunk hole or dock.
  • The Com-Pac 19 has a very large cockpit and can easily handle 4 to 5 adults without feeling crowded. Below there is sitting headroom and berths for 4 adults.
  • I have put at least $2500 of materials and equipment and hundreds of hours of labor into this boat. I am selling it because the Admiral has lost interest and wants a runabout instead. This boat will make an excellent first yacht or a great fit for someone downsizing or who wants a boat they can trailer (we moved down from a Hunter 36 and I actually find this boat more fun to sail.)
  • Call or email me with any questions. The boat is currently in her slip in Lake City, Minnesota and can be taken out for a sea trial in a moment's notice.
