  1. Hello,

    My husband & I are the owners of Hull #8 – Windspirit. We keep her moored in Apponaug Cove in Warwick, RI. We have had the boat since the Summer 2011. We sail it with our 4 children. Over the years I have notice more water leaking into the hull (bilge) while moored. The water doesn’t drain out when lifted out for winter storage but seeps in possibly through the center board area possibly where the pin sits to keep it in place. Since the water is below the bilge bump level I usually manually pump it before I sail. I have also checked for leaks & cant seem to see where the water is seeping in. The floor would have to be removed to investigate where I can’t see. I have run ground before but see no outside damage. I’m the 3rd owner of this boat. I noticed the water issue from the beginning but would like to rectify this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. This message is for Bob Walker of Deltaville Va. My wife and I are in the market for a Quickstep 24. The ones in which we are interested, are 800 to 1000 mi. away. Looking on this fleet registry it looks like that you may be the closest person to talk with and if you would agree, to look at your Quickstep. We live in Kinston, N.C.

    1. Thanks for the potential Q24 owner contact – I’ll try to locate Bob Walker.

      I’ll bring Viola down the Chesapeake Bay from Rock Hall MD to Urbanna VA by the end of July.

      Q24 #14

  3. Hi All – I’m looking for a Q1 or Q24 in the MA/RI/CT area if anyone is interested selling this Spring.

    Scituate, MA

    1. Not ready tonpart with her yet but would be willing ti share for the season- she will probably be docked in new london ct for the summer- james 860.478.4068

    1. Greetings all from a spanking new Q24 hull #14 owner. I was fortunate to find her in the upper Chesapeake Bay and will sail her home in July to Urbanna, VA on the Rappahannock River in the southern Ches Bay.
      A couple questions:
      1. How do I get added to the Q24 Fleet?
      2. Why are there so few Q24 owners registered? Weren’t ~ 200 built?
      3. Do any Q24 owners have a trailer from which you are able to use a ramp to launch each time you sail? Or does the draft and motor shaft (mine comes with a Yamaha 9.9 long shaft) prohibit launching this way like centerboarders are able to do?

  4. Hello. I’m the current owner of “Crazy Curls”, Quickstep 21, hull #37. Sadly I am looking to sell her. If anyone is interested I can provide more information and some pics.

  5. I have a quickstep 24 and was wondering if i could add a topping lift- is there a pulley at the top for that? Also, can the boat be modified to have a self tacking jib?

    1. James- I just purchased hull #14 and it has been modified with a topping lift. I’ve seen the boat once and it is 4 hrs away now but I’ll try to remember to take a photo when I see her next. It might be an extension wire from the backstay in lieu of a traditional working topping lift but it keeps the boom from being a head knocker.

  6. I just purchased a Q14, hull #22, built 1991. Haven’t sailed her yet, been fixing some leaks. Only photos I have so far are from the previous owner. When I’m finally up and sailing, I’ll post some photos.

    1. Hi John. I think there are two good ways. The first is to check the sail number. If the boat still has its original Hood sails, the sail number and hull number will match. The foolproof method is to check the boats identification number which is stamped into the hull on the upper right outside of the transom just below the rub rail. The 7th and 8th digits indicate the hull number with the build date following. Hope this helps.

      1. Thanks Bill. My hull # is 96 for my 24 Quickstep. John. PS Does anyone have a solution for removing varnish stains on the skid pads?

  7. IMy wife and I will ve vacationing in August 2015 at Little Current, Ontario so we would like to contact MarisaT,Lynn Nye at South Bay, Manitoulin Island. We would like to see your 21′ Ryder sailboat. We are looking to find a 24′ Quickstep to buy. Thanks, Larry Patterson. 559 8402077 or laika3@comcast.net

  8. I live in California and I’m looking to find a quickstep 24 on the west coast, San deigo to Vancouver, BC so I can actually go see one. If I like it as I suspect I will, I’ll try to find one forsale even on East coast. Thanks, Larry

    1. I would like to get a message to Lynn Nye of South Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario as my wife and I from California will be in her area this coming August on our vacation. How do I get a message to her about her Q21? thanks, Larry Patterson. Please send replu to mu email: laika3@comcast.net.

  9. Q24 “Quitticus” (hull #173) checking in from Mattapoisett MA.
    Would appreciate any feedback relative to reefing mainsail. The button located in the mast track would appear to prohibit any type of jiffy reefing.

    1. I am a former owner of Carina and I got nostalgic and looked up this website. I am happy to see her listed. I miss her and hope she is keeping you safe and providing you with endless adventures!
      Joan Pozner
      Alton Bay, NH

      1. She is well loved and well taken care of. She is shipshape from stem to stern and is a joy to sail or, just sit on during a calm sunny day.

        1. That is great to hear. Thank you for responding. Carina spend 4 years with us before she moved to Vermont. Love Love Love that sweet sailboat!

  10. I found out that the roller furling unit is a Harken 0-288. Don’t know if they are supporting this one anymore but you KNOW I’m going to find out.
    Tom (#33)

  11. Hello,

    My husband and I just purchased #33 – the boat was originally blue but as is has some dock rash we may have to re finish the whole boat, giving us the opportunity to change color to something more durable ( the blue is a great color but is looking tired).

    Here’s our information:

    Tom and Kristen Siebenhuhner

    We’ll be sailing out of Himrod, NY on Seneca Lake

    We are in search of any and all materials that will help us with respect to rigging the boat.  In particular the roller furling (which we deduced is by Hood) is a big challenge right now.  I have contacted Hood (but, it is Labor Day)…..  

    please include us in the QS 21 registry
