Re: Sad demise of an old C&C
Pretty boats, in a classic C&C way but no one ever said they were roomy... My least favourite part of that design was their 'hockey stick' rudder.
How was the smell below? That can be as off-putting as much of what you see sometimes.
We owned a Viking 28 for 10 years.. same designer, slightly more modern shapes but no standing headroom.. a lovely, pretty boat that sailed real well. But by todays standards, as you say, many 24 footers had more room.
