Good luck, tell us what you end up with. I'll be cruising the same waters as you this summer and will keep and eye out for you.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I know a nice C&C24 on the market, a few bucks over your budget though

That C&C25 that was posted earlier, looks like someone took a saw to the bottom of the rudder, or they bought a scrap of marine ply and built their own.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I have a feeling it isn't a C&C rudder at all. It doesn't have the balanced profile of a C&C 25 rudder.

It happens, my Catalina 25 came with a different rudder too. The original one had been damaged (probably made contact with a prop blade, then got a soggy core) and the PO just bought what was easy and could be made to fit rather than the proper rudder. I replaced it with a proper balanced rudder down the line.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

There is a 24 ft Kent ranger on Seattle Craigslist for under $2500. A little IORish, but, neat unsinkable boats that sail and cruise quite well. Also, IMHO nice looking....

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I saw the ad for the Kent Ranger, it would be a great boat, and I haven't seen it in person, but I've got a feeling it hasnt been well cared for recently, I could be totally wrong though. From being slightly patient, and looking early season, I think for 4-5 I can find a boat that is ready to go. Not a Swan, but a good boat. Not that I'm trying to knock this Ranger, because for all I know it's awesome. It's on my list and I'll probably be surprised that one boat that looked perfect in the ad is bad in real life, and one that looked bad is nice.

Keep them coming though, unless they are owned by someone with the poor taste to paint it Orange or something. Really I'll take anything as long as it's not Orange. But I don't even know why I bring this up since the odds of me coming across an Orange sailboat for sale in the PNW are virtually non existent.

I am 'provisioning' tomorrow, which means I'm packing. Hopefully I'll go early sunday, but knowing myself I bet I go late sunday, early monday. It's 5-6 hours away.

That's the scary part. I'll not see the bottom unless I slap on a wetsuit and dive, and even then, would I know I was getting the wrong rudder?

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Transom hung rudders can be popped off of their pintles with very little work, then you can compare them to standard drawings for that boat (or better yet find measured drawings of the stock rudder).

Looking for signs that pintles have been moved or a strange tiller to rudder connection would also be a good hint.

You should inspect the rudder regardless anyway. Any signs of swelling or a crack along the rudder seam are a bad sign and show that water has gotten into the core. I knew that the rudder was not right when I bought my Catalina 25 and negotiated appropriately. Replacing the rudder was one of the first things that I did.

Oh and it's not painted orange either, it's an original gelcoat colour from C&C. Looks fantastic IMHO, makes a change from all those dull white ones out there, and everyone knows that orange is the fastest colour too

I like it in the pictures! Not sure if I would have been brave enough to order it new, but it would not keep me from it if it happened to fall in my lap!
