San Juan 23 Technical Tips.
web site is dedicated to all San Juan 23 sailboats that love to be
pampered for I fervently believe that a boat responds well to good
treatment. So treat her well and talk kindly to her while on board,
for she is listening, (and it wouldn't hurt to quietly thank the Clark family
for a good design). I document all modifications to Panache
& other SJ23s here as it is a great platform for sharing info.

Click on this link to review how other sailors pursue their projects plus
ones I'm working on.
sailors have stumbled on the SJ23 web site since the first Tech Tip was published on May 26, 1999. Chuck started this site a few years earlier. One day we met for breakfast and agreed to add technical stuff. He has since moved on to help with family interests. The rest is history as it happens. Enjoy. Contact me
Some Tips last tweaked on 2018-09-26
I was visiting a local club mellowing in the cockpit with a glass of wine while waiting to capture this moment. The haze in the air is from forest fires 800 KMs West of me on the other side of the Rocky Mountains.
REALLY USEFUL STUFF!

|DISPLAY SETTING - The Tech Tips are formatted for a display setting of 1024x768 using any of the available browsers, although my preference is Firefox.||
- Unfortunately this web site is NOT SEARCHABLE. This
not available with free space on
server. However, you can use
(entered from your keyboard) to
search through an index or a document.
||PRINT - I've made each Tech Tip printable on (8.5x11)" paper so you can carry a printed document to your boat. While viewing the Tip online go to "print preview" in your browser and scale it to fit your printer. It's a lot easier to scribble notes on paper than on your laptop!|
- I don't know everything about the
SJ23, yet! Much of what I know is documented in these Tech Tips!
I am very grateful for the missing bits of info that dribble in from other owners.
Many are not even aware how valuable the information in their question
is. I generally update the applicable Tech Tip with the info gleaned from their
approach to solving the problem. This
knowledge is provided in the true spirit of the
Internet, "A free exchange of information for the benefit of all."
- The modifications shown in these Tech Tips give you an idea of what can be
done to repair or upgrade an SJ23, or any other pocket cruiser for that matter. The
Tips are directed to those individuals who
possess "opposing thumbs" or know people who are suitably
equipped! You assume all responsibilities for misplaced pencil
marks, cutting too short/long, picking up the wrong tool or not understanding
what you're about to do!
