Pros:
Cons:

I have owned my '79 C&C26 Encounter for 3 years and have really enjoyed it.
It will be tough to find a more spacious 26 footer that sails reasonably
well-and has the quality of C&C. There are 2 versions - the Encounter has a
shoal draft of 3'-11" which helps get into shallower waters. The std 26 has
a draft of 4'7" so is able to point a little higher. Neither is a speedster,PHRF 210, but it is a fun boat to sail. Mine has the wheel and really behaves like a larger boat. You can visit the C&C photo album website
and there are some pix of both exteriors and interiors. Avg asking price is $13500 and there are always 4-5 available on the web in Soundings etc.

Pros: Head room is ok at 6 ft plus
Cons: Lots of leaks

I am looking at a 26 c&c with the deeper keel . It has been in storage for 2 seasons under shrink wrap lots of wet cushions and water in the bilge. I am not sure if it is worth putting more money and work into the boat . Engine stringers are not glassed in at the end grain and seem a little soft with a penetration of 1/4 in or more into the end grain. Engine compartment has some dark gray on all the wood around the engine. Fuel tank is steel and has rust on the outside lower ends so I don't know if any rust is on the inside . Don't know how long the tank will last and how deep the rust has penetrated the wall of the tank. Not much room to work on engine or fuel tank . Engine is yanmar 9 hp single cylinder diesel. Exterior has nice paint Imron I think and decks have been painted too. Not sure if it is worth buying with so many issues. I had a seidelmann 299 that was in about the same condition and it was a lot of work . Anyone own a C&C 26 that can tell me where else to look for weak spot on this design. I always liked the C&C brand. In fact I own a 24 ft Mirage designed by C&C but I need a little more room so I was considering the C&C 26

Is the 1978 C&C a cored hull?
