Re: C&c 36

I had an '81 on Lake Superior. It was a great boat, especially in light air. With a reefed main and a #4 up, I could sail in 35knts no problem. The only problem with the boat, other than the normal age stuff, is the holding tank.

I talked to one of the original C&C designers and he mentioned that the tank doesn't suck enough air during a pump out. This can cause the tank to crack at the outlet fitting. I added a second 1/2" air intake and the problem was solved.

I would hightly recommend this boat.

Re: C&c 36

I have a 26', and I don't see what's wrong with it, guess I don't know enough about this 'group' of CnC's. I guess it's whatever you plan to use it for. Glad you found out before you got it.

Re: C&c 36

We had a 36 for several years and enjoyed her very much. Maybe a bit more tender than the 33 and 35. Way more head room than either one of them. We had not started racing yet so I can't speak to her rating or racing capability. Look carefully at the hull on a boat of that vintage. Hull is cored. Some of the older 35s were not cored, for what it's worth.

JonB-I have been searching on/off for the picture you use for your profile for @ 7 years now. Do you know the name of the photographer? If so please share. I tried to download the profile pic but no luck.

Beken of Cowes. Search for "Silk Crash" - the pics and story are on the web. Beken also sells posters and so forth but they are pricey and have to come from Cowes.

I particularly liked the fact that there was a guy on the bow when it happened - that's a 40' boat so you can imagine how deep he went.

One of the sequence shows his head alongside the stern. No-one was hurt.
