Ct 48

I like my CT 48.

I have changed the original helm location from the stern to a bit further forward. The reason had to do with lonesomeness more than anything.

There was only one decent place to sit so you were always alone...also with the offset (now centered) companion way so far forward, you were almost completely isolated when on the helm. Plus the backstay always hit me in the head.
Itís much better now.

She is a heavy boat with a full keel and lots of freeboard. Since my new stomping ground is the Med. (stern too) I've added a bow thruster.

I've also added davits and black and grey water tanks.
I love the massive bilge...gives me loads of room for extra tanks and such.

I had to remove the water tanks and have replaced them with glassed-in ones.

I've re-powered with a J444 from Mermaid in England its a little bigger (85hp) and just barely fit...I had to make new stringers to mount it.

Before bringing the boat from the states I replaced the original wooden rig with Aluminum and all standing rigging.

Lots more to mention, but my hunt and peck typing style has a limit.

I would love to talk to other ct owners and compare notes, and others doing refits.

She’s no light wind boat...but with 20kts on the beam she goes like a freight train.
She is a heavy weather boat.
I'm not that familiar with the CT47 but I believe they are very different boats,
Mine is 39,000 lbs full keel and canoe stern.
