I found an old brochure for a C&C MK1 29ft and it looks like a match.

Thumbs up That be a C&C 29

Yep;
Mine is blue. Check the transom on the left and you will see the HIN which gives you the mfg and date of construction along with the serial. Boat was an adaptation of C&C's winning half tonner, on which they added a cabin to fulfill a request from the folks at Youngstown YC for a family cruiser that could also be raced in club events. Over the past 30 years the fleet here in lower Niagara has sailed as a one design, although now they tend to PHRF (rated at 170). It was called a 29 because they at the same time had an older design which was known as the C&C 30, stiffer and slower and many more sold. That boat could be built here at Niagara on the Lake, or in Middletown RI. The boats built in Kiel Germany had a different cabin design on deck.
They are a round bottom IOR design and you should really aggressively manage the sail plan to keep her on her feet. They are pretty damn fast and sail like a dingy (well given the waterline of 24 feet of course). Ron Mazza the designer once told me that the boat was 29.75ft. long because at 30ft you owe American Customs $35 yearly clearance fee. George Hinterholler who built them told me the only way this boat could hurt you, was if you drove it into a breakwall.
I could go on for ever but why do you ask?

As a former owner of a C&C30 I feel the need to disagree about the slower statement! The 29 is a nice boat, but the 30 is an all time classic plastic, reputedly the stiffest boat C&C ever made. FWIW PHRFNE rates these boats equal, my personal experience was that the 29 very rarely beat the 30, even the local 29 examples with the six inch lead shoe added to the keels (the 29 is NOT a stiff boat). That said, the 29 certainly is a handsome boat, and a credit to the family.
