Chrysler 22 Sandpiper, 1979

  • Wichita, KS

    Chrysler 22s are solid, well-built boats, heavy for their size. They have an iron swing keel, and draw as little as 18" with the keel fully retracted. V-berth forward, settee and dinette in mid-cabin. Galley slides on tracks into lazarette area, or out into cabin, or is removable entirely. Cabin top behind mast can be raised for standing headroom.

    Overall, she is in good sailing condition, with nothing needed to go out on the water tomorrow. It's not perfect, and needs a good cleaning and wax after sitting over the winter. Hasn't been out this year, the flooding we had made it really difficult to get boats on the water until recently.

  • Hull and deck in good condition, no leaks anywhere while I've owned it. Portlights resealed, lifelines removed (available) and holes filled. All through-hulls removed (no depth sounder or sink drain anymore) and glassed over. Bottom paint in 2017.
  • Older mainsail and jib in good condition. Jib is from a San Juan 21, cut high for good visibility and easy tacks.
  • Newer running rigging, in good condition
  • New laminated and varnished tiller
  • ohnson 9.9 outboard, electric start. Starts easy and runs great, recent impeller. Newer epoxied outboard mount. Homemade engine stand included.
  • Most cabin cushions recovered in a tasteful striped fabric. Enough fabric included to finish dinette cushions if desired.
  • Solar vent in forward hatch
  • Original sliding galley with working alcohol stove
  • Dinette table present, should be used as a pattern for new plywood. Pedestal complete.
  • Trailer was completely rebuilt in 2017, new paint, bunks, jack, bearings, tires.
  • Mast raising system (gin pole and guide-stays, rigged with mainsheet purchase) makes it possible for one person to raise/lower the rig.

    As I mentioned, it's not perfect. The previous owner removed the knot meter and depth gauge, holes need to be glassed over. Some other glasswork (reinforcing the stern pulpit) is done, but needs gelcoat. I didn't have time to show her much love at the end of the season last year, so she needs a good cleaning and a wax job.

    All in all, she's a good boat, easy to sail and a lot of fun for not much money.
