Also, the C&C photo album website has an email thread that you can sign up for that has been full of extremely good advice. Have fun with your new "free" C&C!!!!
To the first part, your right I need a lot of time learning the operational behavior of the Off-Set prop shaft and prop wash in general. it was my first time with this boat. It was also my first time in 30 years with a large Sailboat. I needed to get her out for a bottom job and the tide was in my favor with this full-moon. So I went for it. Not sure the folding prop gives good thrust, and did you see that bottom? Hahahah, I would not much thrust with any prop with that kind of beard.
And as for the C&C photo Album. Not real impressed with that. I have found this site much more knowledgeable on things related to sailing. Not many photos for an album? I am signed up and with the up to 30 foot area. Like 10 or 15 post in 2 years? Maybe I am not doing something right? Not sure how to post photos over there. But Thanks I will keep checking back to see if more people start using the C&C site. I signed up my vessel and information back in December still can’t find it?
Thanks’ again for your help guys.
