If only I could of had a pre-purchase survey on the Admiral, would have saved me a packet.


I hope she never reads this forum or I may find myself buried at sea, alive.

Dude, some of us live aboard and alone by choice, and then there are those of us who go out of their way to eliminate all other options.

If you think a pre-purchase survey would have saved you money, just consider the cost of decommissioning.

I would go for the sea trial first, and then the survey, in case the engine/drive train makes any funky noises, blows smoke, etc. Also, if there are unusual things you notice, like water around the base of the rudder stock, etc. Jams in the running rigging.. Make these notes during the sea trial, and then ask the surveyor about them during the actual survey.

Good luck on all this-- I would still go for the C&C 24 if it is viable. If it is a '79, that is post George Hinterhoeller (he was with them until '76), so be sure about build quality. Ours was a '73.

Also, there will always be another right boat, so don't feel bad about taking a pass. The other good thing about taking the sea trial first is that you get to experience the boat for future reference, if it doesn't work out.
