29-1 - decent price, diesel, but bad boat?
Seems like the c&c 29-1 is a dog of a boat, so people seem to say.
I found a 29-1 up for sale near me that is asking 13k but owner is obo. Engine is diesel, recently serviced and tuned, sails are in need of replacing eventually, but in "good" shape still. Main is fully battened, has a spin-tec furler on the genoa.
She is running a Yanmar 2QM15 diesel which was serviced in 2015. 12v truecharge 10 charger, house batteries are new as of 2013. Throughhole valvues replaced in 2010, new low vibration engine mounts in 2006.
He previously used the boat as a airbnb, however the marina is apparently cracking down on this type of business, so he has no need for the boat now.
I know they like to be sailed flat, in light wind, however I'm curious since I'm located in Seattle if this is a potential boat for me.
I'm looking for one that will be able to take me comfortably out to the puget sound, to san juan islands and back for weekend cruises. Not excatly looking for a racing boat, however am looking for one with comfortable space and size.
When people say she is "tender" sailing, what does this exactly mean? It seems like if we are approaching 15kn winds, we just need to reef early to accommodate for her poor sailing characteristics in heavy winds?
