Re: Feeling Foolish and Discouraged!

Sounds like a learning experience. If it's not in writing, it's not a deal. It was rude of them to keep you hanging but there are a LOT of rude, crude people who have no regard for the time and efforts of others. They seem to be more the norm nowadays than people who can be trusted to stick to their word. Deals with handshakes went out with trusting bankers. It's just part of selling things.

Re: Feeling Foolish and Discouraged!

I was in the market for a C&C 27 when I purchased my last boat. I ended up with a C&C 32 but I looked at enough C&C 27s to know a good deal when I see one and that's just what came up today:
1975 C&C 27 Mark III - City of Toronto Sailboats For Sale - Kijiji City of Toronto Canada.

I would jump on that (provided it's sound etc). You can't really go wrong with a C&C.

Thanks very much, I'll call today. That is one of the boats I've been looking for.

Cheers,

Re: Feeling Foolish and Discouraged!

It says a macerator is being installed. Is that necessary on the Great Lakes?

Re: Feeling Foolish and Discouraged!

It's actually illegal on the Great Lakes to direct discharge so maybe the ad writer is mistaken.

Re: Feeling Foolish and Discouraged!

I will bet a huge number of Great Lakes boaters like to think they could head down the canal and out to open water one day.

I will bet there are some that dump overboard anyway.

I read an article on boat waste and the Great Lakes. Intuition would suggest you don't dump in a confined place, but most probably can't wrap their heads around how big they really are. Nevertheless, the thing they were most worried about wasn't the waste itself. It was all the crazy nuclear chemicals that some boaters use to disinfect or deodorize their holding tanks. That stuff really should be banned. You can ironically do it more effectively without those chemicals. You just have to use your head correctly. The chemicals actually kill the bacteria that could breakdown waste, odor free, if you let it. For starters, you have to keep EVERYTHING out of the tank, unless you ate it first. I hate extremist environmentalists, but I am totally behind environmental improvements that actually work.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
