New C&C 24 Project Boat
I just started on my newest project and can use help from anyone who's tackled anything like this.
The boat was a yard derelict for about 6 years and has hull damage (dents with cracks) where the rear pads contact the hull. The yard was not a sailboat yard and, unfortunately (stupidly, if the truth is told) had the tongue of the trailer tipped up which made any water which found its way in over time to migrate to the stern creating an unloading of the keel and loading of the the 2-3 square feet area of the cradle pads.
Along with being filthy and having had water standing in it, I think it is very salvageable. It was abandoned by the original owner and is fairly well equippped with a 110, 150, drifter and spinnaker.
My first projects have included complete dewatering and removing all interior cushions. I have made an initial inspection of the hull damage and it appears that it is manageable.
Along with all of the other goodies, I have the original paperwork which includes the C&C owners manual in a 3-ring binder. I'll be happy to scan and share if anyone has the need.
I'll post more as time allows.
