Here she is on a blustery spring day, 3 to 4' swells, 20 kts of breeze, a very wet ride. We sailed two up with just the mainsail, sailing fairly conservatively, as no one else was on the lake to assist. Which translates into trying to keep the windward hull near the water to maximize the margin for error. The foiled rudders really shine in these conditions, you can drive the leeward bow completely under and she won't pitchpole, she just grinds to a halt, blow the main some, head up or down, the bow pops back up, and off you go! I've owned the boat for 8 years, sailed it aggressively, and never pitchpoled. A great boat for big water, good as a solo machine in lighter air. Very easy to right. Not competitive with newer F16s, but an inexpensive spinnaker cat that's tons of fun to sail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmLM_Q8LZxI

I'm not aware of any currently for sale, but I'll keep you in mind should I hear of one. I'm still deeply in love with our 22 !

Yes. It's on the trailer. I'm getting it ready fro some paint. I'm looking to downsize. Know anyone with a ARC-22 for sale?

Mike, I painted (yellow) the mast when I got the boat 7 years ago, out of concern for UV. It's very solid. All the other components are store out of the sun except when being sailed. So all of their clear coats are good. The hulls leak some, maybe a gallon each after session, I just drain post sail, and carry on. The hulls are very lightly built, foam core, thin skins inside and out, so it punctures easily. I repaired and faired the boat prior to paint, and I've dinged it up since. Looks good from 10' away, far from perfect up close. One of the daggerboards is a replacement, and not identical. Nicer actually. Running rigging is all good, as is standing. Main and jib are original, signs of wear, but still sound. Spin is new. This boat can bring you lots of joy right out of the box, and you could make her real pretty again with not a lot of effort or money.

What condition are all the carbon components in? Have they ever been re-coated with UV resistant varnish/paint? I don't want to buy a boat that I'll have to be fixing up significantly, so how is the condition of, well... everything? Thanks for your tim and honest answers.

Nice boat. Unfortunately WA is about as far away as you can get from FL.
