So, I am getting much much closer to buying
a boat (yay)... and have found one I really think I want to visit. I have traveled to see 4 or 5 specific boats, and checked out other boats in the areas while there. The boat I have my eye on now is a bit different, I am familiar with the C&C's and specifically their 34' model.
The one I am looking at is the centerboard
option (which I didn't know they had that option on this model). Does anybody here have any specific knowledge of this design, and its workings. The draft
goes from 4' to 6'-11". The broker describes the system as a fiberglass centerboard
attached on a stainless steel
pin, controled by a self-tailing winch
on the cabin
The boat is a 1982 model, how well do these systems age? Does these still suffer from the C&C
smile? Basically, any advice, and opinions you can share would be welcome. Thanks.
