About This Boat

The Harmony 22 is a light air flyer.  She has a daggerboard, which facilitates dry sailing and maintaining a perfect racing bottom.  Plus, dry sailing costs about a third of what moorage would cost and you can zip over to out of town regattas easily.  Gizmo races in the South Sound Sailing Society (SSSS) races in Budd inlet, which is notorious for lighter wind.  Her round bottom provides minimal wetted surface for light wind speed.  She will  plane in over 15 knots of breeze.  I've seen 8+ plus knots on the speedo several times.  In a good breeze with the J2 up, she will go to windward at over 6 knots!  For a 22' boat, that's fast.  She rates 201 PHRF.  In light air or medium air, she can always sail better than her rating.  I seem to do well in heavier air, though it is rare in Olympia.

Rechristened in August of 2015, she was as good as brand new or even better. 

I upgraded her rig with a carbon fiber, double spreader mast with both a full height spinnaker halyard and a fractional halyard.  Your choice.  Also she has dual jib halyards and a Harken luff foil, so bare-headed sail changes are a thing of the past.  I fitted her out with a new suit of North 3DL sails (way over-kill for a 22' boat - they're bullet proof).  And I have a killer drifter by North (Won a lot of races with that!).  She has a custom

She has a custom dagger-board style rudder.  I stripped her down, replaced all the windows, resealed the hull/deck joint, painted her with a two-part linear polyurathane, resealed every fastener, and refaired and polished her bottom.  Her bottom is wet-sanded to 400 grit from mast forward (laminar flow zone), and 220 grit aft of the mast (the

Her bottom is wet-sanded to 400 grit from mast forward (laminar flow zone), and 220 grit aft of the mast (the turbulant flow zone).  I also bought a new outboard and overhauled the trailer.  Here the specifics :

Hull: 1979 Harmony 22,  daggerboard, 3000lbs total, 1200 lbs ballast in bilge, 9.5' wide 

She's a foot wider than a J-24 at the deck, yet narrower at the waterline.  The hull flare provides plenty of deck area and a dry ride.  Replaced the rudder with a custom dagger-board style lifting rudder in 2013 for about $800 (material cost only).

Trailer:
Galvanized Roadrunner Trailer, rebuilt in 2016 with new bearings, galvanized hubs, galvanized drums, galvanized brakes, tires, galvanized wheels, springs, shackles, S/S hardware and jack

Deck Hardware:
All halyards led back to cockpit.  I position a crew member in the "pit" (the companionway) so they can handle all the strings and trim the sails at the same time.

All hardware except original cabin top winches were replaced in 2015.  I added two more winches to the cockpit coaming to facilitate single-handing the boat, and to help during spinnaker take-downs when there is too much going on in the companionway. 

Almost every thing is Harken and brand new.  The Harken BB jib fairleads are designed for 30-35 foot boats, and can be adjusted from the windward side on the fly.

The spinnaker launches and is retrieved from the companionway.  The spinnaker basket slides forward and out of the way when not in use.  The spinnaker pole is stored on the boom.  Packing the chute is a thing of the past.  Its ready to raise again as soon as it is doused.

Cruising amenities:
Gizmo is a 22' boat, so don't expect standing headroom, an enclosed head or a full galley. 

Cruising on her is like camping, only more comfortable.  She is actually quite roomy inside with her 9.5' beam and sitting headroom.  She features two very comfortable bunks on either side, and a V-berth up forward. 

I modified the companionway step so that it unfolds and bridges the two berths to form one huge almost king size bed across the boat.  The upholstery should probably be replaced if you intend to do any real cruising, as it is original.  She has a sink with overboard discharge, but the water tank was long ago removed to save weight for racing.  She has a portapotty that has never been used.  We prefer the bucket for day racing. 

I have cruised Gizmo a few times, but always end up at places with shore amenities such as showers and bathrooms (Longbranch Marina, the Narrows Marina, Jerrill Cove or Island Home).  I have a grill that mounts on a lifeline stanchion.  I just bring along a camp stove and cookware.  I keep all the upholstery and cruising stuff at home to save weight.
