Question

Here's a picture and few comments on that boat :

[www.sailboatsales.com]

Pretty much like a CL16, but without teack seats and without the opening for luggage in the bow (see the CL16's picture at the
same net adress or at the builder's net adress).

Hope that help you.

NB : I Know that there's also a Mistral 16 cabin. Which model are you looking for ?

Hello John
I just read some older messages on the site and I'v found your letter asking infos about Mistral 16.
As John D. and 19 22 23 3 , it is a very plesant boat to sail.
I bougt the model with cabin many years ago. it was in good condition therefore I did not spent may hours fixing problems.
'Lots of elbow grease and buffing to restore the shining.
As far as specs I would love to have some myself but no luck so far.
I was not able to get any replies to my request.
As far as parts .. well I manage to compromise with what is available on the market eather at the Boat House in Mtl or at MMO marine store in Burlington N.Y.
I had to have the stays redone in Hudson a couple of years ago beside that nothing that you could not do yourself.
It is such a pleasant and forgiving boat that I do not hesitate to sail it at the Two Mountain Lake in semi heavvy winds.
When no wind then a 5hp outboard does the trick.
The headache was the trailer (to lightly built )but this was also solved.
I had one major problem it was the swing keel cable that I forgot to look at more often...new cable...
Good luck with your Mistral\
Ed.

Hi

I have recently purchased a used Mistral 16. It is the open cockpit design. Does anyone out there know where I can get a copy of the owners manual or maintenance instructions for this sail boat?

Does anyone know what the small side block on the boom is for?

Hello Pete
Just happened to read your request for infos on the Mistral 16 (open cockpit).
Unfortunately I did not had any luck in finding an old user manual myself,.. still looking..., by the way I own a Mistral with cabin.
Jean D. in his reply to John on12-06-01 gave him some specs.
As far as parts well you have to make do with what the market offers you.
You do not need any fancy things all the rest you can do by yourself nothing special.
Boat house in Dorval have parts as well as MMO marine in Burlington.
For stays there is a shop in Hudson that takes care of them.
As far as the small side block on the boom I have no idea there is none on mine.
One advise have a good look at the swing keel cable.
I am sure that you are not going to regret your purchase it is a nice little forgiving sailboat.
See you on the Two Mountain lake.

Egidio,

Thanks for the response. If I come across a manual I will let you know. My work takes me to Lac Megantic once in a while where these boats were built. I'll ask questions around the waterfront when I'm there. Maybe the block on the side boom was a customization by a previous owner. I have the original sails and sail bag. I'll start out on the Chambly basin just to get used to the boat.Everything is in excellent order except I need to do some work on the cockpit sole as there is a crack beside the cockpit drain. Have you noticed any leaks in this area?

Pete

Hi Pete
Got your E mail.
Since I have the model with cabin the cockpit is a little different from the open cockpit. What I'v ound was some (gel coat) cracks on the sole because of the liner but this has been corrected by installing some teak blocks between the sole and the hull.
As far as leaks I have none in the area you mentioned. Nevertheless I am not able to see anything except what I can visualise from the outside.
Hope you are going to enjoy this little happy boat.
Do not forget to have a good look at the swing keel cable.
Thanks for looking for a manual.
Have a good day
Egidio

Hi:

I acquired a 12' fiberglass Mistral. All the rigging seems to be in tack, but it appears to be missing a bracket that holds the mast to the boat.

Can anyone help ID what that part is. I apologize for my lack of terminology- but it's my first go around with sailing.

Also, it appears to have rigging for a main sail and a front sail. If anyone can offer the proper sail this boat requires, it would be greatly appreciated.

Is MMO Marine in Burlington, MA or VT??

Deidre in New England.

I have to ask.. how were the teak blocks installed between the sole and the hull? Were they slipped in from the bow area?

I notice my sole is a little "bouncy" actually and that may have caused some of the problems.

Thanks,

Pete

Hi,
I just purchased a Mistral 12 myself. Did you ever find the bracket for the mast? My boat has one, if you like I can take a picture and send it to you.
I need info on the wooden seat over the center board, mine is missing. I am going to make one myself. Any info such as Length, Width, Thickness, any add-ons (such as cleats) would help me out greatly.
Also any related sites on Mistral. I have some documents that came with the boat if any one would like a copy.

I've got a Mistral which I had refinished. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the hardware layout prior to stripping. Some things are now (after 2 years) a little confusing as to there placement on the vessel.

Does anyone have closeup pics of the hardware configuration?

I aquired a Mistral 12 some years ago and has been a great little boat. I never received an instruction book with it. I would love a copy of one if it was possible.
As for the seat, Mine has a fibreglass one and I would like to help you out with dimentions etc but I am on the west coast and my boat is in Quebec. I wont be back until next spring so if you don't have the info by then I can help you out.

Mistral 12 (Various - Pot-Pourri)
Posted by: F : Moussaillon - E : Ship's Boy Wilson Gunn (IP Logged)

Just purchased Mistral 12 sailboat. Looking to connect with others. Mine needs some fiberglass repair right along the right angle where cockpit floor meets the rise to the seat. Any one else work a repair like this? I see plenty of instruction about repair of more or less flat surfaces, but little on that kind of an angle.

Also is there a place on web owners of these boats converse?
