c&c 99 hull survey question

[This was posted to another less active forum, not Sailnet, so my apologies if you have seen this question before.]

I had a 2002 C&C 99 hauled out for a survey today knowing that in December 2012 a survey found a void on the starboard side just below the waterline about 1 foot by 6 feet long which was repaired (the core was found to be dry so epoxy was injected and the entire hull was re-tapped afterwards and found to be good.)

Today, the new surveyor found two voids about 12x18" each to the aft of each side of the saildrive (just ahead of the lift straps.) This was obviously a surprise because of the prior survey and repair work that was done. The voids today were very obvious so we had the original surveyor come back and he believes they were not there when he did the original survey and re-survey after the repair.

I don't know if the issue is sections of dry laminate (never received resin during the vacuum bagging process) or if the resin-ated core area bonding is failing (which would be worse.)

To get straight to the point, have the seller fix it and go forward or walk away (or run away if that's the appropriate response)?

Thanks, Brian

I would walk unfortunately. You don't want to own a boat that gives you a voice in the back of your head wondering if all of the problems in the hull have been fixed.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Every buyer should research the boat he or she intends to buy. Research Tartan and C&C lawsuits.

I'd walk... if this is a progressive issue, you can fix 'these ones' but others will likely crop up the next time you haul.. how can you know that all the bad spots have been addressed - esp since the currently offending areas 'tapped out OK' last time.

Re: c&c 99 hull survey question

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to walk, there's just too much risk.

The boat in question was produced the same year as the C&C 121 that had so many problems, and while there isn't any hull cracking on this boat, the root cause seems like it could be the same, especially with the appearance of the new and large voids (there was actually a third void identified around the back-stay chain-plate which I forgot to mention earlier,) maybe 'progressive' as Faster mentioned, will eventually mean the whole hull...eek.

Assuming there was a real issue, if there was a fix implemented, does anyone know which hull numbers/years are the problems?

I can't find that information so unfortunately, that probably means I'll avoid all of them.

Re: c&c 99 hull survey question

EVERYBODY that does resin infusion has some amount of less than perfect results and it is NOT like there making thousands and can afford to chuck a marginal hull and there is really no way to fix it

Even on a CNC machine were everything is very controlled a certain amount of stuff hits the reject bin

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
