Post CT Owner Group

Well I have a CT 49 and my friends Francis and Bill has a CT 41, so I guess we are a tiny Southern California CT Owner Group.

Anyone else care to thread in?

I have been doing a near complete restore on my 49, so I am a wealth of hard learned information on the 47-49s, I even have the tall mast ketch rig center cockpit, with the hydraulic steering...

Francis and Bill redid the engine on their 41, and it is in tremendous shape, they can answer questions on that model.

Re: CT Owner Group

Re: CT Owner Group

We own a CT54 that is currently located in San Diego. We just bashed up from Mexico last month and plan to head up to the San Francisco in the next two weeks. There is a CT54/56 owners group on Yahoo if anyone is interested.

Re: CT Owner Group

Well, do you have any parties or meetings or gatherings in the Pacific? My wife hates boats, but she is OK with boat parties on land...

I am going to leave this thread open for a while. I read somewhere that there were sixteen CT47-49s built, and from time to time you see one for sale that is totally redone. I stole several good remodel ideas from CT 47s that were for sale, there could be a lot to share on these boats.


If you wish to share with CT owners, in Southern California, CT owner group, thread in here.

PS, in a previous life, I owned an Alden Schooner with a real teak deck, 2 inch square teak deck planking over 3 inch square oak beams... Now that was a leaky teaky arrangement! Knees still hurt from reefing, corking and caulking the whole deck in 1999!

Re: CT Owner Group

CT 47 and 49 are the same except for transom reversal on the "47s". The 47 hull is 46 foot 11 inchs long, just the hull. The hull retains the C&C sheer line marker, but the keel is a sheel type to minimize draft. Kaufmann and Ladd did the design, but the whole shebang was put together at Ta Chaio yard. The boats have the 110 plates inside with the stamping.

These boats are the "freaks" of the CT yard, they go like snot (no offense to anyone) I went in the Ensenada race last year, and measured everything, and they gave me an 84 rating... the same as a new Beneteau 47!

This is mine, we are in the long beach sailing club...

Re: CT Owner Group

I've got a CT48, 1978 vintage. It was the cutter version (now sloop) and had the helm (no cockpit) right on the stern.

I've done some radical mods, and is now (for lack of a better term) a center/aft cockpit.

I'd like to be part of the CT Owners Group.

Re: CT Owner Group

Re: CT Owner Group

You are in... I am very inclusive. I think that an owners group should have at its core, people who are willing to share how they fixed this, that and the other, weak areas to look out for, inexpensive repair methods that turned out great, things that looked easy, and ended up taking all kinds of time and money, and in our case, any history possible about a yard that built a bunch of different name plate boats.

I know in the case of my boat, it was filled with cabinets with diagionally placed lattice like air vents in the doors. When you opened the doors they fell out, (the whole door, not the vents) because all the screws were either a very cheap bronze or brass. Now if someone asks, I can tell them how to fix that problem. It took me better than a week to get the total fix mechanism in place... And we also built some matching doors, but you don't want to do this, it took a year...

I can see I am going to get stuck buying the domain name CTOWNERSGROUP, I have some experience writing websites. I will just make it if people send me pictures, We can post the boat, and I guess we will need some kind of blogging. And probably, some kind of checkin system for those cruising...
