I missed the original thread (if there was one). What's the boat you sea trialed?

Yep, I lost the shear pin on our prop last summer in the middle of the fairway right after I had backed out of the slip. Good times. Okay, not so much.

So how 'bout some details dude?

Well, I had a little C&C 24 I had been looking at surveyed, and then took it out for a bit of a sail to see how I liked it.
The afternoon started OK, got to the marina and the boat was already in the slings. Then the owner told me that on the way over he didn't think the outboard was pumping enough water so had called his mechanic. His mechanic gave him a loaner unit (water pump going or something on the actual unit). So after Mr Surveyor had finished (and said pretty much what I was expecting), we headed out into the Haro Straight to see what she was like in the water.
Quite nice is the answer, the sails are a bit old and baggy, but I'm not racing so don't care. Rigging seemed to work OK, it sailed, did a few tacks, gybes and so on, nothing came crashing down. Very pleasant sail, managed to get her up to just shy of 6knts. After about an hour and 30 we headed back to the marina. Fired up the motor, got her into wind, dropped the sails and turned back towards the docks. Gave it a few revs to get moving, and it revved OK with no obvious signs of propulsion. Checked it was in gear, tried again, same so hoisted the foresail and managed to limp to the fuel dock where we executed a very smooth docking.
Said thanks to the owner and left him to it while we went to the pub. When it's my boat then I'll help

So are you buying this boat? 6 knots in a 24'r is doing pretty good. C&C are generally speaking good boats.

I'm just renegotiating prices based on some feedback from the survey. All-in-all it wasn't bad news, the boat is essentially sound with a few problems to be expected on a 31 year old boat. A lot of the things I can fix over the next few months, a couple of them might need slightly more professional help, and some of them just involve me speaking nicely to the chap in the chandlery for some discounts. So aside from some missing safety gear, it's pretty much turnkey with maybe a weekend of work to sort some bits and pieces and tidy her up a bit.
