The price is a fair one if it surveys well. Make sure they check the moisture meter, mast step and chainplates as this boat was raced ( I can tell by the tyoe of sails. Looks like it was maintained well too

Keep us up to date with your search. Especially your experience at Crowley's. I will be searching soon for a used boat, and as they are a pretty big boat yard in Chicago maybe I might be working with their brokers.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

My experience so far with Crowley's has been great. Broker is a laid back guy, no pressure what so ever. There are several brokers there, mine was listed through Sailboat Sales Co., but I'll their boats show up on yachtworld.com as well.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Hey Hillenme,

Did you get to look at the 1982 34' C&C called "Black Dog"? Its also being sold at Crowleys. If you did, what condition was it in? That is quite a price difference, so i am curious.

Keep us posted on your search. I am very interested.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Turban,

I did get a look at Blackdog. It was actually used occassionaly by the sailng school here in monroe harbor. I didn't take a long look at it - it is not in good shape. Brightwork all a mess, all this ugly navigation equipment stacked so high on the helm you can hardly see over it (might make sense for a curiser, but not this one). The sole below deck is new, looked like the only thing recently replaced. All the lines including sheets and even docklines are still out on deck getting rained on. Seemed like there was a lot of work to do, probably be a nice fixer-up, but I was in the market for something needing less off season work, at least right off the bat. There are a lot of nice boats for sail in Crowley's yard. Check out Sailboatsalesco.com.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Dave,

Thanks for all the great advice while I was checking this boat out! Just had the survey this morning. Moisture meter and thermal imaging all showed good readings, even around chainplates, anchor locker, etc. The only place the deck showed a little wet was on the sole in the cockpit. After really going through it with the surveryor I was impressed at the level of maintenace it has recieved.

One thing the surveyor cautioned me about was the rod rigging. Said it should have a magnaflux inspection - and it's not cheap. Do you have rod rigging? Any experience that can speak to it's life expectancy? I haven't been told by the broker that it's ever been replaced, and he's made a point of showing me everything other little thing that has.

Thanks!

Erik

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Yes I have rod rigging. I have replaced it once about 8years ago. Not cheap. The schedule for replacement for standing rigging is very 10 years. Lots ofeople go wy longer. How much does a magma flux test cost. Maybe put tht money word replacing it since its 30 years old probably.

Congrats on the survey. Sounds like she will be yours.

Dave
