Considering Ranger 22 as first sailboat

  • Ranger Yachts (CA/FL)

Perhaps I'm premature - which is the reason I've joined this forum - but I learned to sail just this year on the Flying Scot back in the spring and have taken every opportunity I was comfortably able to, to continue sailing that boat and grow proficient in my skills. Moreover, I think I successfully resisted rushing out and buying a boat beyond my needs. However at one point I had the opportunity to sail a 30' sailboat and instantly discovered the significance of the advice of the importance of sailing various boats to discover what you'd like in your own boat. The 30 footer seemed so slow and ponderous that I seemed to think I'd like a smaller, quicker boat and that's when the Ranger 22's came upon my radar screen. I've visited a few websites including the Brazilian one but I speak neither Portugese nor Spanish, so other than appreciating the beauty of the little boat it was uninformative. Although they're no longer made it seems the owners are pretty enthusiastic about this boat so perhaps they're the wrong people to ask but do you Ranger owners feel this to be an adequate choice for a first boat? I don't understand many of the technical terms being discussed here1 such as the 15 - 20 degree point or leaking requiring teflon sheeves, so is a 78 or 79 an overwhelming maintenance headache? I believe I've progressed quite well for the short amount of time I've saild but is much required in sailing skill? I don't recall seeing any galley in the few pictues I've seen so does the 22 have one? Thank you for your time in answering.

Sounds like a pretty darn good 1st boat to me. I sail a Tartan 27' and a 19' Lightning and when I race the Tartan there is a 25' Ranger that sometimes beats us. They are pretty fast boats - Rangers. I found this website http://www.strictlysailing.com/ranger22/boat.html where it says that 'the optional stove and sink, you can turn he Ranger 22 into a snug and practical weekend cruiser.' So do not expect a stove or sink on most R 22's as it seems they are largely raced. My Tartan is from 1967 so I know about maintenance. A boat from 1978 or so sounds pretty good to me. Check at that website for boats for sale; there is one for sale in NC (Lake Norman) for $5200 that has about 20 sails, trailer. If you thought a 30 footer was ponderous my guess is you are going to like the Ranger 22 a lot. The advantage of a heavier boat is only for dealing with heavier winds. Good luck.

Thank you Caleb... ...I've heard of the Tartans and looked it up and that's a BEAUTIFUL boat. However, the problem with newbies such as me, is pretty much all of them are beautiful and so I'm afraid of missing something else more important as well, but just the same...she's beautiful. I've read and re-read your email because to me, it's so full of information, insightful information. I've surprised myself in really taking my time about this because I'm sure you're familiar with the stories people often tell you when you mention your interest in sailboats: "Well ya know the 2 happiest days in your life are...etc" or about all the unsailed boats "just sitting in their slips". And yet, I don't think I'm doing it intentionally but I find sailboats 'extremely' interesting and even the whole affair of just 'looking' and researching the different boats is turning out to be educational and an adventure as well if done patiently. Yes, "ponderous" is the word. "The advantage of a heavier boat is only for dealing with heavier winds." See there? There's just so much commonsense in this sport. Yeah. Thank you.

Nodachi, The lack of a means of cooking and washing up should not be a deal killer in a 22 foot boat. There are many ways to improvise that will serve you well. A porta-pot, A camp stove and a dish pan will meet all of the NEEDS for over nighting. Enjoy our sport and buy a boat that you can afford to keep and will be able to use.  

Nodachi, Another book you would enjoy is :The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow" by McKimmom. It is the saga of a voyage from northern Wales to the Black sea by one man in an 11 foot Mirror dinghy.  

But how do you return to normalacy??? Whoa. That 'is' an unlikely voyage. An 11' foot boat? I'll check it out. Sorry for the delay but you know how stuff shows up and you can get side-tracked, but I wanted to get back to you about that because the book I was telling you about has similar exploits. For example they discuss the disabled Englishman Captain John MacGregor who designed a series of "light, shallow-draft doublenders, which he called "Rob Roy" canoes, and sailed them more than 1,000 miles through the waters of England, Scandinavia, Europe, and Palestine." It doesn't say how large they were but they resembled "sailing kayaks". From my reading it seems by and large, sailing generally wasn't done so much for pleasure as for work, by the working class until the 19th century. Here are some more gems for you that you may find interesting: "in 1876 Alfred Johnson sailed his 20' dory Centennial across the Atlantic in a rugged 46-day passage." Whoa. "The next year, Thomas Crapo of New Bedford sailed his 19' schooner-rigged dory across the Atlantic." "In 1880, two gentlemen sailed their 16' cutter Great Western to England." "1891 saw Josiah Lawlor sail his 15' sprit-rigged Sea Serpent in a transatlantic race (45 days) against William Andrews 15' gaff sloop." The next year Andrews made the crossing in a 14' boat. Gary Spiess crossed the Pacific in a 10' boat in 1981. But check this out about Robert Manry: He "sailed his 13' Tinkerbelle across the Atlantic in 78 days during the 60's. Suffocating in his job as the classified-ads manager for his Cleveland newspaper, Manry modified his family boat and put out to sea. We saw him at last in Falmouth, England, embraced by his family and surrounded by a jubilant throng of well-wishers and admirers. After all this time, I stillrember him, arms outstretched, frozen in his moment of triumph. But then what? The boat was crated and shipped home. Manry returned to his desk at the Plain Dealer. But how do you return to ordinary living after such an experience?" How could he return to normalacy?? I see you're up near Havre de Grace, ever check out Tidewater? I used to visit the one in Annapolis when I was still dreaming of owning a Hunter 33. I'd like to think that I'v grown quite a bit since then though. ;D I agree with you and think I'd LOVE owning a Ranger.  

Single handing Hey Ross, another question I have is probably stupid but just the same, are the 22's good at being single handed? That's a serious consideration for me because I've read how difficult it can be to get a crew and so as a result, people don't use their boats.  

Nodachi, the ease with which a boat can be single handed is determined by how the control lines are arranged. I watched a cruising sailor sail into Rock Hall harbor alone, turn around and sail out, tacking a couple of times along the way. He didn't seem to be rushed about anything and did a fine job of showing the rest of us how it should be done.  

ok then... ...that's the significance of having the "lines lead aft" because of the convenience. I've looked at a lot of the pictures trying to determine if this was the case because this is very important to me. As I said, I've been going out as much as possible on Flying Scots and we aren't allowed to take them out without a crew member, so frequently I've just wanted - and had - "a body". But that "body" has come in handy not only during tacks and gybes, but holding the tiller while raising and lowering the sails. That being the case I was wondering about the ease of performing these same tasks with the 22, but it's a matter of the lines leading aft, that from the pictures, I suppose they do. Thanks again. The draft is 4'3" so although that doesn't sound very deep to me do you consider it deep for launching off a ramp?  

4'3" draft sounds about right for the Chesapeake and environs as there is a lot of skinny water around. As far as trailering I believe you will find that the biggest limitation will be the ramps that you choose to launch from. Will they allow you to get the 4' depth you will need to float your boat without inundating your vehicle? There are some tricks that trailer sailors use such as tongue extenders and you can disconnect the trailer from your vehicle and slide it furthur into the water as long as it is held by a rope tied to your car. You have not purchased a boat yet? You are going to love stepping and unstepping the mast. Good luck.  

Righhht I don't know for certain what the depths are for the ramps in the marinas around here yet, but I've seen a few leading into the Potomac from a distance and they looked fairly gradual in slope so I was only guessing the water must be shallow. I should have mentioned this guy at work who knows boats and he was telling me how "difficult" it was to launch a fixed keel boat from the ramp and suggests a swing keel. But I like the design of the Ranger, its history, and I'm familiar with its designer. I'm not trying to talk myself out of owning a boat but I've been so stoked on this idea, I don't want to dismiss my logic because boats do have that emotional appeal. Have you heard the arguments thrown at you about "the 2 happiest days of your life being...etc" and "a boat is a hole in the water that you...etc"??? And this coming from sailors mind you. Anyway, like most average people, I have financial obligations that I'm trying to manage but at the same time, I think, there's usually 'always' 'something' that will come along to mess up the works so that there's seldom the "perfect" time to do anything, so you just have to go for it when you can. With that in mind, I figured if you carefully thought it through, researched, and figured out what sort of sailing you'd like and the right boat for it that you could reasonably afford - that this should be possible. As a part of it I started saving a short time ago in what I call my "boat fund" because I'm not going to borrow to get her. I hope you're not kidding me about being able to slide the trailer further into the water because the displacement is at least 2182 lbs. If not, that's good news. But I 'do' think you're putting me on about stepping the mast. ;D

Re: First boat for the Chesapeake My first/only boat is a Catalina 22 with a swing keel--you might check out the Catalinas. They are sturdy, reliable, and there are many others owners in the area (Fleet 10 of Catalina 22 national association). The swing keel has gotten me out of many a grounding since my depth meter has been dysfunctional. A member of Fleet 10 posted his 1984 for sale ($4400) recently because he has been transferred out west. If you're interested, I can post his contact info. If you want to come along on one of my sails I can give you that info, too.  

Perfect First of all, thank you for taking the time to answer my email. I'm glad to hear this is your "first/only boat" because you're still not that far removed from where I am psychologically as far as preparing to buy my first one. The Catalina 22 is another boat that I've considered because it 'does' seem to be pretty popular. What was your experience sailing prior to purchasing? What made you purchase a boat and how'd 'you' go about it? This guy at work today was telling me - he'd owned a Catalina 30 - I should consider renting because owning a boat is a lot of work and he spent most of his time on her. Do you agree with him? I think he's soured on boats and that he may have purchased too much boat, but I don't know. What were the factors that guided your decision in knowing which boat(your Catalina) to purchase? I'm presently still in the researching phase (as well as still saving) so I'm unprepared to purchase my boat yet. Sure, I appreciate the invitation and I can be easily reached @ nodachix@yahoo.  

great choice Spent almost three yrs. looking for my first sailboat bought a ranger 22 I had virtualy no sailing exper. almost didn't buy it because I was afraid I only wanted it because of it's good looks. Stepping the mast is a pain so I dry sail it. The deep keel makes launching difficut at many ramps, they come with a lift point attached to the keel so I winch it in the water. I sail it in S.F. Bay that deep 900 lbs.keel that is some what of a pain to otherwise launch is a real blessing when the wind gets stronger then you expected as in 30 to 40 mph. gusts. I made it safely back to port with just the main (unreefed) 4 other boats were de-masted 2 were capsized the same day. The ranger 22 responds quickly to tiller input like a dingy, has "wheather" helm if the sails are unbalanced in big wind, the traveler divides you from the "crew", has a multitude of adjustments to sail shape that can be daunting doesn't like to slow down comeing to the dock so you need to de power the sails earlier than you think Every time I go out I learn a little more about "triming for speed" great fist boat I sail it single handed often. it's short comings, difficult to launch at some ramps needs water under the keel(get a depthmeter) hard to sail to it's potential(you are always challanged)If you want a motor on it,it needs a real long shaft as the "mount" is high(in chop it lets the motor out of the water at times)not good for water pump mine still works but I worry about it  

great choice 2 dry sailing is leaveing the boat on the trailer or dolly only you leave it rigged(mast up etc) much like haveing a wet berth in the marina. Most fin keel boat have some wheather helm. While I am not knowleged enough to explain center of effort I'll try to explain my understanding of what causes wheather helm. First let me say that it is possible "steer" a sailboat without a rudder with just sail trim and weight transfer. The sail is just like an airplane wing it makes "lift" when air travels around it, airplanes have flaps that create more lift. The attitude of the plane changes with the flaps down. Triming sails through use of vang,sheets etc. changes where the effort(lift)occurs, balanced triming of the sails keeps energy even fore and aft of the center of effort for a particular boat unbalanced means you are trying balance the sails driving energy with the rudder & yes that produces drag Outboard motors have water pumps to cool the motor they do NOT like to be dry, when the motor comes out of the water the can't draw water in. Truth be told I finally chose the Ranger because I wanted a bigger boat(dreams of tahiti)reality was I couldn't afford the money or time. This one had everything the "big boys" have knot depth compass marine radio and the guy had given it a lot of love. Too many of the boats I looked at hadn't inspired their owners to have pride in their boats all the other Ranger 22s I looked at weren't for sale and were well cared, for that made me think the boat didn.t lose the owners interest  

Professor Zube Listen, I don't wish to over do this but I really do appreciate you response. I'd been checking my mail because I wanted to know the answers to the questions I asked - even if they seemed quite naive to you sailors who already knew the answers. A lady friend of mine familiar with sailing told me when I first started talking about boats that I'd "been bitten". Maybe so, maybe so. But anyway I'd heard that expression "dry sailing" and had no idea what it was but your explanation(s) cleared up everything for me. I didn't know that about the water pump but it makes a lot of sense because I understand Muller raked the transom forward for aerodynamic design since it's a racer and so as a consequence when mounted a "long shaft" would be required in order to submerge the water pump. Gotcha. Yeah, you know I've read it's possible to steer a boat with the sails and balance so ok, it makes sense now what you're saying about imbalanced sails being the source of weather helm. Nice scholarly dissertation Professor Zube. Tahiti. Yeah, I hear you. We had similar ambitions. I settled in to working for the gov't and thought "Well, no more adventures." And sailboats occurred to me and I thought, "Hmmm. You could learn to sail, which would be an adventure in itself, and then sail down the coast to the Carribean or maybe eventually to Rio!!!" So I learned to sail last spring and dreamt about a Hunter 33 upon retirement. But about a month ago I sailed that 30' and I thought of the responsiveness of the Scot and I started reconsidering a 'good' smaller boat would be more economically feasible with the same benefits of a larger one and I wouldn't have to wait until retirement to begin my sailing adventures. I read on a site giving advice to people selling their boats how important presentation is because it's a sure enough clue to how the boat was treated. Anyway, thanks again Zube. You've been a well-spring of information.  

Another advantage of dry sailing is the reduced maintenance of the hull as virtually no marine growth grows on it if it is stored on a trailer whereas wet storage allows growth and slime and (worst of all) barnacles that requires at least yearly maintenance. Bottom growth greatly reduces a boats potential speed. Dry sailors leave there mast stepped with the boat on the trailer. If you step and unstep the mast you are trailer sailing and you will find out what a PITA (not the bread either) this task can be. You need at least a 12 pack and your 2 biggest friends (Bubba and Buddy perhaps) to help out. Of course there are some easier ways to do this; most obvious is access to a crane but this is rarely available at a launching ramp. Other shortcuts involve a gin pole and A frame setup for stepping/unstepping the mast. If you are truly worried about launch ramps I would go with the Catalina 22 swing keel (centerboard) as ms_purplesagesailor mentioned. A centerboard boat will be much easier to get off the bottom once you find it. The only ramp near you that I have used is at Colonial Beach VA (quite a bit south of you) to launch a Mariner 19' (also swing keel) and even there the tide can play a factor in ease of launch. There are so many good sailing areas near you so it could be great to trailer to all those places instead of taking days to sail there (plus slip/mooring fees along the way). Do you have a place to safely store a boat on its trailer and is your vehicle big enough to tow your intended? This is the easiest way of making owning a boat A LOT cheaper. Good luck.

Factors Affecting Cost

Buying a yacht in Russia is a rather time-consuming and lengthy process that requires the participation of professional yacht brokers. Depending on the condition of the vessel, the year of manufacture, the quality of its equipment, class and size, the acquisition cost can vary greatly. There are several indicators on which the cost of buying a yacht will depend :

  • Manufacturer, or shipyard - the most famous manufacturers with expensive products are concentrated mainly in European countries, and the most budget yachts are assembled in shipyards of the countries of Asia and the Middle East;
  • Equipment - sometimes the internal filling is made to order, and in some cases it is standard equipment with less power, comfort, speed, etc. In this regard, the cost of ships even from one manufacturer can vary greatly;
  • Ship design;
  • The age of the yacht.

Also, sailing yachts for sale in Russia cost the buyer less than similar motor lengths, but yachts with a history do not always cost less than recently launched ones. Often, the previous owners are engaged in the modernization of the vessel, installing expensive additional equipment on it or customizing the yacht - in this case, the price for it increases significantly. And sailing yachts often participate in regattas, where they can take prizes and eventually acquire a name - this also leads to a rise in the cost of the vessel.

Note that the cost of a yacht in Russia will be significantly different depending on the length of the vessel. You can always check the final cost of the vessel with a yacht broker, and since this market is very lively, the price can change even during the time during which you pick up a yacht.

Seller's Description

Ranger 22 Winter Haven FL.

My Mull designed Ranger 22 is for sale.

An amputation of my right leg necessitates the sale. Trailer, outboard engine, 2 mains (good condition) 3 head sails (good condition) and a new spinnaker included. 4.2’ Fixed keel. $3,750 or phone 217-638-7738

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
