I am looking at “Viola” a Q24 in Urbanna Va. Anything I should be looking for? Sounds like motor mount may be a typical concern.
We are planing to keep it on the Potomac in Colonial Beach.
Any others around? Maybe on the Chesapeake?
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.
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.

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.

Hi All – I’m looking for a Q1 or Q24 in the MA/RI/CT area if anyone is interested selling this Spring.
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
James….we might want to charter for a long weekend…any interest?
Sure lets talk- i am away (in France!) till monday- my email is email@example.com
JoAnn and I have owned Jo, Q24 Hull #169 for the past year. We sail out of Newburyport, MA.
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?
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.
Is your sailboat still for sale.
Assume you sold, but let me know if not…I am looking for a 21 or 24
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?
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.
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.
