The line drawing with the specs doesn't match the photo, the cabin trunk cuts off forward of the mast rather than continuing to the bow.  The Chrystler 26's I have seen match the photo. At the Chrystler owner's site listed in the database they have a drawing ( http://chryslersailing.lizards.net/images/SailPlan01.jpg ) that matches the photo.  It may be that the line drawing in the database is for a different version of the boat than the photo or the examples I have seen.

Sail areas on the owners group elevation are slightly different from the database.

Displacement and ballast are also listed differently in the spec section http://chryslersailing.lizards.net/sail_c26.html which indicates it is a direct transcription of a 1977 brochure.

Looking at both the database (DB) and Owners Group (OG) line drawings the lwl of 20 listed in the DB can't be right from visual inspection.

I scaled dimensions from both drawings with the following results:

Owners Group         Database
25.50      lod      25.42
26.00      loa      25.92
22.00      lwl      23.17
28.33      I      30.58
10.25      J      9.83
7.75      E      8.08
24.58      P      28.08
0.00      IY      0.00
0.00      JY      0.00
0.00      Draft      0.00
95      SA main      114
145      SA foretriangle   150
240      SA tot      264

Maybe this will help sort things out.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground that no one would think to try and refloat it.

Yes. thanks. I remember this.  Many of Chrysler boats, or ones that began as Chryslers, are all over the place.
Let me look into this further.

Very helpful.

Edited the Chrylser 26 with new drawing.  The actual rig dimensions are on the sheet and they all add up to the totals shown. I have to admit, the ones you came up with are pretty close, despite the fact that the drawing I started with was somewhat badly skewed. Now I'd like to know where the non-raised deck version fits in. (the old drawing)
