Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom
The other way you could look at it is, you'll end up with a boat in very good order for short money. Convince yourself that you would have paid that much, or probably a lot more, for a boat in turn key condition. Plus, a C&C sells for pretty big money. I've looked at them, a few of them. One was a 32 and abandoned by the owner in the yard for years and years, The sails were still on it and out in the weather all that time. It did have small diesel engine though. But it needed a lot of work. It was really just a hull and motor and they couldn't even tell me if the motor was any good. The price was over $12,000. I doubt you'd find a boat like that in good working order for under $15,000.
So, if you can get her in the water and sailing for under $3,000 you're doing great!
