Re: Sad demise of an old C&C

I'm not sure why this should make you sad. Nothing is forever, especially in salt water. This vessel has reached the end of it's useful life and now belongs in the "old boat graveyard".
The boat was built to be a cruising boat that no longer meets the demands of cruisers. You could spend lots of money to make it an inadequate cruising boat. But you weren't crazy enough to do that. Why should you be sad about that? Not everything old should be restored. Not everything old belongs in the museum. Some old stuff (BUT NOT ME) just needs to be recycled or discarded.
