I moved just recently from the west coast
to the east coast
(job-related) and was looking for a project boat
to retire on in five years or so. And a project
I found, it properly qualifies me as crazy to take it on and I expect to get a lot of ribbin' about it.
A month ago I saw this awesome 'abandoned refit' for sale
, parked in a marina in Maryland
. Upon a bit more investigation she turned out to be the 'Pegaso', one of two C&C
built Custom 62s. The first one has an aft cockpit
, (1981 'Marauder') this one has a center open pilothouse (1982). If you read up on the sparse info about them, they are a custom variant of the 61s that made quite a splash in the racing
world in the old days.
'Pegaso' went around the planet twice and then ended up 15 years !!! on the dry, largely stripped of anything un-boltable. Good news, I don't have to remove old parts
when I want to add new parts
, but there is still a lot of work
to do. Thinking about a hybrid drive (electric motor/generator, LiFePO batts, and a Diesel
generator) Deep Blue? some solar
, modern navigation
, ... as far as the money
will go. Ahm, yeah, it needs a new Ketch
, winches, ...
Looking forward to meeting all of you at some anchorage soon.
