Oh that's different, yes the C&Cs are going to run deep too. You may want to look at designs like the older Columbias, Morgans or Tartans with centerboards. Most of them have a good rep for build quality and sailing ability. Or a multihull? If I had the money and I lived in Fla, I'd REALLY be tempted by a tri for sale I just heard about:

Herreschoff, Alden, Rhodes, Stephens, Hunt and many others routinely filled our harbors with craft of breathtaking beauty, speed, power, seakindliness and seaworthiness. Now...just memories. Soon enough, the memories will be gone too.

A lot of things are better now than when I was young and some things are much better. But we lost many wonderful things along the way, apparently forever. Full-time, stay-at-home mothers, safe streets, and CCA boats are only a few.

What a cool boat. I wouldn't dare take it on a long passage though.

I'm interested in centreboards. Its just difficult because I've had one bad experience with them. When I was kid, a series of events occurred that ended up getting me washed overboard because I was unable to raise the centerboard. Scarey swimming for your life at 9 yrs old.

I love the concept though. Shallow at home, deep in the deep.

It's hard to find a good build for centreboard boats. I love the new Seawards vertically retracting keels but they are out of range for my budget.

Morgan's are great if you get one from the seventies. And I've actually found a C&C custom with a fun keel that has a centerboard that rotates out of it. Alas, they leak don't they?

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,
Please bring me the slip number to my new love, preferably a heavy lass, beautiful lines and a cabin that makes sense~ Hans Christian, a Nautor 43 - I trust your judgement. I've been exceptionally good this year, (so far). I hope this is adequate notice for you to make the arrangement.
Gratefully,
Brandi

Are you saying that fast and cruising don't go together comfortably? Fast are flat and cruisers are full keeled?

I've got a bad back. Is a C&C going to beat me to death?
It also has a balsa cored bottom ....... thats' what is going to beat you to death and why they are so cheap, re-coring the bottom ...... 100k !

Re: Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

Please have your elves complete the refit of my boats, including materials, and all maintenance for the next 5 years.

That should keep the little buggers out of trouble in their off season.

😃

And BTW since you are flying that sleigh undetected around the world...I also have a few importation requests.

What if the reindeer thing is really just deep cover for Santa's real mode of transportation?
Maybe Santa is really a sailor.....

No not all C&C had balsa cored bottoms. Most to start with were cored to about 4 inches above the water line. Get a good survey and make sure the hull is sound and dry and you'll be fine. There are many solid examples of this lighter and stronger hull design that are in great shape for good prices. There have also been others where due to neglect and or damage that the core starts to rot. Just depends how far it's gone and where. Doubtful you'd ever have to re-core an entire hull but spot repairs could be possible.

Later C&C's in the late 70's and early 80's did start to have a fully cored hull, very few were done with balsa below the water line though. J boats did this too. I do know of one Jboat that was for sale in the Muskegon area in Michigan that did need most of it's hull forward of the keel recored. It was for sale for cheap.

There is a C&C custom 41 or 43 in Torrensen Marina in Muskegon MI, very well taken care of boat. Not sure it's actively for sale currently but it never hurts to ask.
