1980 c&c 32

Has anyone with a C&C 32 experienced the hull "indenting" just above the waterline at the point of the chain plates. Mine has a six inch square sections where the hull has "sucked in" on both sides of the boat. It has been that way for quite some time and I have had a surveyor look at it and he couldn't explain. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

The dimples come from over-tightening the shrouds, they pull in the bottom of the panel that the chainplate attach to.

This is a condition not uncommon especially with boats that were raced hard. I would be dumbfounded that a surveyor not recognize it.

I have always considered this primarily a cosmetic problem, but never had it myself. I know one owner who took out the dimples over the winter with a cross-wise car jack, I dont know how it looked the next season. You might get opinions over on the C&C list.
Certified...in several regards...

The later versions of the C&C 29 MkI did that. They were somewhat lighter than the original and as a result had the reputation as being faster. (I don't think so). When you Awlgrip the hull have them fair it out. I never saw one sink for having the problem.

Well, let me tell you something about boat surveyors.
Even a S.A.M.S. accredited boat surveyor is only required to have 3 years of direct, hands on, marine industry experience and pass a simple test to be a S.A.M.S. accredited boat surveyor.
Anybody can call themsevles a boat surveyor. All you need to do is have some business cards made up, maybe a nice website might help, and you is a boat surveyor.
It a freaking crazy system that the insurance companies and banks have swollowed hook, line and sinker.
Sure there are some guys out there surveying boats that really now there stuff but for the most part it is a self accrediting industry that ripps people off and puts those same people at grave risk.
Please, talk to other boaters and do your home work, it's your life and money at stake.
