Hi all
Just a quick introduction after watching this site for the past 8 months I think it's great to see all the different posts from all over the world
So all I'm a self employed builder working my ass off in the uk every day not getting anywhere fast and sick of the rain so one day to soften my day I decided to buy a yacht !! Always interested me but never had the money or time to get one so after a year and half of looking I bought a c&c 27 that needs a full restoration stupidly partly to get my ageing dad a bit of fun who always wanted a boat and to get him doing something but my plan failed.
So after a couple of years struggling with work and a the loss of my mum it's now time to start fixing it up in the hope of a bit of sunshine and in redeiness to escape to a sunnier climate one day. That's a big wish for the future! !!!

Welcome to the forum. You will love and hate the boat. I bought a C&C 25 3 years ago, should have bought a 27. Great well built boat. Enjoy it I love mine, drops my blood preasure 20 points as soon as I step on her.

Fixing it up is all part of the fun, and rumour has it that the UK does get some sunny days.
Good luck with the boat, just keep looking forward to getting out on the water.

Welcome.

You will find, as you "travel" the internet, that in addition to this fine forum there are many "boat-specific" websites, formed by interested owners and/or owners associations.

In many, many cases, an internet search engine (like Google) is your very best friend.

In some cases, boat size may not matter when it comes to fittings and fixtures, so stuff for other c&c sizes may also work for you.

Other stuff, like boat electrical & plumbing systems have nothing to do with specific boats, but are "universal" for us all.

We can also point you in the right direction for "learning" stuff. This is an example: West Advisor Articles | West Marine

Good luck, happy hunting and all the best.
