new to me boat.
I went for the pre purchase survey today and decided to get the C&C corvette that I have been looking at. She needs a ton of work, but I will be putting her in the water and sailing her while I finish fixing her up. There are a few projects that need done before i can put her in though. I have pictures, but I dont know anything about computers. I will put some up when I have time to figure out how to post pictures.

Congratulations on the new boat, sounds like she will keep you busy. Remember to post the before, during and after project pics.

Nice, My first off-shore sailing experience was on a Corvette about 30 years ago. Boston to Maine.

I still haven't had the time to learn how to post pictures but I will start to post them once I figure it out.

The easiest way to post photos is to use Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket Just upload them from your camera or PC to the site, then click the yellow, Insert Image icon on the task-bar of the quick reply box, insert the link to the photobucket site where your photo is located and it will appear with your post.

Good Luck,

Gary :cool:

I like the C&C Corvettes. Before I bought my Bristol, I had looked at one that was for sale in Milford CT.
Very nice.;)

I spent a few weekends working on her now and have an updated report on my progress. I got the old atomic 4 running like a champ again, thanks to the guys at moyer marine. It is amazing that this boat never caught on fire or sank... there were mismatched hoses on the wrong sized barbs everywhere. Fuel lines, water intake, exhaust.... problems most of my problems so far have been just getting and installing the right fittings... now I am in the process of fiberglassing up some of the useless old thru Hull holes. The boat has thankfully been bottom coated in the past and was soda blasted back to this barrier so I have a fresh start for my bottom work. She has alot more big projects to do, and although I am taking pictures I cannot upload them from a phone I guess so you guys willhave to be patient until I get to a computer.
