Re: Older 1980s C&C

I sail on and maintain an '85 C&C 32 with Yanmar diesel. It is a good example of C&C quality and consistency. Aside from deck cracks on hard corners (forward where coach house meets deck, coming corners at back of cabin, helm seat port and starboard) the boat seems to stand up. All 32's have the dimple port and starboard on the hull below the chainplate close to water line. The galley floor near the stove is spongy. We'll pull the genoa tracks in the spring and rebed with butyl, as well as some other fittings. Boat is now with third owner, has seen some ocean time, and having spent a good deal of time in the cockpit locker I'm convinced the boat took a T-bone hit near the port secondary winch. No indication of bottom blisters.

Typical C&C repair completed - cabin windows replaced, hatch lenses replaced, some typical hardware replacement like stanchion bases, blocks, mast collar casting.

We have done well in club racing matching another 32.

All in all a good boat.

Where will you be sailing?
