Re: C & C Mark I Input
I spent $2,500 for the boat it came with 7 sails a good running 2gm yanmar diesel and a lot of other stuff. Yes it took 4 months and a lot of work. I spent $4,500.00 on a haul-out and bottom cleaning and paint for the bottom. The C&C is a great boat. especially the older ones. Mine is a 1981 C&C 30MK1 She handles like a dream. I still have some things to do to get her were I want to be but no one has every project done on there vessel's/ The price you have there is a great price. some things to check if you are not going to get a survey.

What ever you do have fun. Don't be afraid to do it your self on a lot of the projects. Its fun and it lets you get to know your vessel real well. I will give you a feeling on ownership. You do some bonding with her. You will both benefit. Good luck
