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!

Speaking of making her shine. Its amazing what a buffer can do the old chalky gel-coat. I can hardly wait till they finish. I will go back after work to see were they are at. They are going to restripe her too. Who ever did the last stripe job?? not so straight hahah. And thanks Paul, its people like that make doing this a joy

Keep up the good work...did they do the cutlass bearibng when they pulled thshaft to do the work on your stuffing box?

You will love this boats performance. The older C&C's are quite stout and stiff and will be quicker than most bopats larger in her age group. Dont listen to the crap about balsa cored as as long as you take care with all you thru hulls and anything peircing the core areas. deck or hull wise you will have no problem.

EWhen I bought mine it was between her, a 36 Sabre and a 37 Tartan all good quality boats. She was not in the best inside condition, but the hull and deck were in the best condition. You can always fix up the insides as we have over the years. With your and my sized C&C you get the comforts of a cruiser with the speed of a rocket ship.

The ones built after 1990 lost me on quality as the company turned and went more towar the racers and lightless..

I did not do the cutlass bearing there was no movement in the shaft when I tried to wiggle it. They are doing that stuff today. I went by the yesterday and the shaft was half in and half out. Had something hooked to it? I meant to take a picture. Anyway, should it be done even if there is no movement up and down or side to side inside the bearing? : confused:

That boottop looks like the factory stripe layered into the original gelcoat. I suspect it is quite straight, when viewed horizontally.

Properly done boottops increase in width as they cross non-vertical portions of the topsides, so a four inch boottop may be six inches wide at the bow, and nine inches wide under the stern. If not widened like this, the strip looks like it narrows, when observed in the water. Is this what you have in mind?

Is the yard pressing that the boottop be painted? Again, I think you should just have them restore the gelcoat and see how it looks for a season.

Certified...in several regards...

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

yea,
It had water on the inside and sat low in the water for some time.
While it sat low it picked hard growth on the stripe. I dont realy
have the money for it right now. they said it would be much cheaper to
do now while its out of the water.
You are calling it a bootop's What are the differnt lines for? Sorry
if that is a dumb question.
Boottops or waterline?
Thanks,

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

I agree with the fool about the bootstripe. Leave it.

She's looking good.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

Now that you've got a nice shiny hull, take those grotty old fenders home and scrub 'em clean.
