Back on topic,

Beautiful boat.
Too bad about the state of disrepair.
I sent the broker and email, but judging from the photo's it will have to be a steal. Looks like the cushions are ruined and there are lots of leaks. I just hope the deck core is not wet. Probably too much work for a boat priced at the top of my budget. Even if it went for 30K it looks like there is over 10K of work to be done just in the photos. That's without even scratching the surface.
My experience with brokers, after annoying them up & down the east coast from 2007-2010, is that you have to CALL them. They don't respond or manage email at all. I'm not pushing you; just trying to help.

PM me if you ever meet the girl in the photo.

I agree. I never even listed my last boat because so many of them are just lazy and never get back to you. I ended up selling it in six weeks on Craigslist.

One broker even came and took photos, then dropped the ball. Another would only list it if I stored it at a certain yard and they would not return my calls for setting up storage. Amazing.

Now I prefer to give them ample opportunity to piss me off so I have zero regard for their time or income.

There are a few good brokers out there though. Easy to spot the motivated ones.

Driving from CT to Annapolis to check out three C&C 30 MKII's and whatever else the brokers can find that meets my needs.

The boats are not all in one place so I will use up most of the first day driving around and getting a feel for the boats. Then about 4 hours the next day to spend more time if I find something I consider worth surveying.

I plan on using Sailingdogs boat inspection check list.

Any make/model specific things I should look out for?

Well, unfortunately this one is off my list. I was hoping there might be some potential, but it seems it's a project boat.

Actually, for someone with the time and proper skills this MIGHT be one of the few project boats out there really worth the effort and investment.

Did you ever get a look at the H 33.5?

Not yet. I'm headed for Annapolis tonight to look at boats for the next couple days. There is also a 33.5 in NJ I'm going to try and see on the way back.

How do you know this?
Have you been following this boat for two years or is there a way to look up its listing history?

Sorry, read your post too late and to be honest I'm not sure if I would have had time to contact the broker, set up a time, etc....
