Hi mate, i own a C&C in the past, i can tell you by experience some points to consider with this particular boat, C&C almost all the models are cored built, below waterline to, you need to survey
the hull carefully, C&C are one of the first builders that start cored the hulls and decks and in fact built the hulls very well, another point to consider is the keel
, a smile in the forward edge of the keel in most c&c is usual, check the keel bolts
and sound the hull around the stub , and recheck the keel bolts
for rust , corrosion
, keel bolts loose, etc...
, many C&C come with rod as standar , for racing
is wondefull, again check the rigging
with a surveyor
carefully, some rod rigging need replace every 4 to 5 years , rod break with out warning!!
Main bulkhead around saloon
, C&C are made with a pan liner inside of the structure in some models, bulkheads rest in this liners , the bilge
in most models is flat, water in the bilge
for prolonged time made havoc in the keel shoe and in the main bulkhead close to the mast
, check the condition of the bulkheads in the area that are close with the bilge , also some boats are raced hard, and bulkheads shifting from the liner are usual,
Chainplates, and here i agree with Euro cruiser , some C&C have the chainplates bolted to the wood bulkheads, caution here to...
Well some points to remember with c&c , i never forget my old c&c , this boats sail like a dream, have a sweet hull line, beautifull boats, very well made and are fast... Enjoy one of the most canadian boat ever made.
