Thanks for all the replies everyone!
I am convinced that she is a early 1970s C&C. Does anyone know where her ID plate may be? I have read that the early years have a really thick fiberglass hull
, so I am hoping her hull
has weathered her years of neglect with some bubbles. (Hoping) I am also hoping her deck
is not too bad either. I got on her yesterday, and her interior
has been cleaned out of all the stainless and equipment
that one could use on another boat, so I will have a long road to re-equip her. Very few down here can sail and no one I have spoken with can really appreciate how cool this old boat is….:-(
But most of her interior wood
looks good and the teak
floor does not appear to be ruined by water
from topsides or below. Her bilges are full, but the dock
she is moored on has no electricity, so when I plugged her in, the bilge
pumps emptied her right quick.
Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions or advice
, please feel free. Even a good lecturing on the stupidity of such a project
Thanks again and someday I will see you all on the ocean.
