Boat Type: Merit 23

« on: October 24, 2009, 07:58:45 am »

Hello All....I'm a new member and thought I'd try and get some information about a sailboat I recently bought...a Merit 23.  Much has been written about the Merit 25 but I've found little about this sweet, fast and fun 23....I'd like to get information from the builder (now out of business) about how the centerboard/wing keel was built and any help on servicing this keel unit.  This might have been a design problem that kept the boat from being manufactured for more than one year (1985).

Thanks....Doc

I wish I could help but haven't seen anything more than what you see already about this model. If I stumble into something more, I'll let you know.

Consider having a surveyor check this out. A good Accredited SAMS or Certified NAMS guy (or gal) can give you some guideance.
