Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Being as we did not see the deck, actual square cut holes in the bottom in a place or two........could have been a fire in the interior, hole was cut after getting to shore to put out an interior cushion fire, or remove the engine.......The core may have been too wet to fix etc.

One may not have had a choice on demolishing the boat. Altho I do agree, not good to see. On the other hand, there are a hell of a lot of older boats out there, still servicable, so losing some, may be better as some new ones may sell, manufactures may start building more in the 25-35' range at a reasonable price per say.......

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

First I thought it was fake, then I saw it was at double speed, which made it look like models instead of real life. Once I realized it was real, I found it reassuring how tough and resilient the hull was. Made me feel better!

Amazing how long the keel to hull joint lasted! Sad though...

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

I saved my C&C MK1 from that exact fate in 2008, as MarkSF explained, mine was abandoned and storage not paid. It saddens me deeply to see that happen and how people could just walk away from such a nice vessel. Although she did look like she was burnt up, most likely unsalvageable.

It looks paper thin and very fragile.

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

This reminds me of a guy in Wisconsin who buys and sells old boats and motors. I asked him once what he did with wood boats he gets. He said he chops them up and burns them. I asked him to call me the next time he gets a wood boat.
