C&C 30' Half Ton

Can anyone offer any information about the C&C 30' 1/2 Ton?
I'm interested in a local one for sale.
I have the details off sailboatdata.com but nothing else.
Any information would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

Do you have a link? There's been one around here for decades, always seems to be for sale 'cheap'... I remember being on one some time back, very 'racy' with few amenities below, and an odd cockpit arrangement with 'trimmer pits' either side of the house.

Rod rigging, IIRC, and probably a bit of a bear in a breeze... I don't think this would be a short/singlehanded type of boat without a lot of mods.

I was hoping you'd show up Faster! The boat is in Craigslist. The seller has sent me a spec list, and I've asked to see some photos of the cockpit, no word yet. Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it.

Is that the flush deck version?
I used to race against one in the PNW in my own half tonner. It was a good looking boat and seemed to sail very well.

Hi Bob,
Yes it is the flushdeck version.
Your news pleases me! Welcome to Sailnet.

Nems:
Yes, that design was a little odd in its day because the stern was not pinched in to the degree you saw it in the other IOR boats. I think this made it a better all round boat and p[robably a boat that still performs very well today.

Saw one at Swiftsure last year, maybe the boat you're looking at?

C&C 1/2 TON Sailboat details on sailboatdata.com

I think the phrf rating is somewhere around 160 to give you an idea of general performance.

The one I'm thinking of had apparently been successfully campaigned in its day by Hans Fogh... and was reputedly fast but not easy to keep at top speed.

Average PHRF rating is 165. A little quicker than the Cal 9.2 (based on Ron Holland 1/2 tonner) I used to own.

I raced on one in the early 80's on Lake Ontario. At that time it was a very quick boat.
