    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?

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Hello everyone,
    I want to introduce myself as co-owner of Carina #28 along with Bill Lipke. I have long loved Carina and convinced Bill to let me partner with him. We have had many adventures on Lake Champlain and I will keep you posted on our upcoming “passages”
    Bill O’Connor

    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!

  5. 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)

  6. 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

  7. “Mintaka” Bob Ripley, Wickford, Rhode Island is hull # 34, delivered on 5/17/90
