Finally!

Well, after months of searching, dead ends, failed surveys, unscrupulous listings, and even having my deposit not returned by a broker...

The S/V (formerly known as) Lagniappe, a 1988 C&C 30 MKII is MINE!

She will be renamed HANUMAN after the Hindu Deity.

Currently she is on the hard in Annapolis, but will be sailed to Mystic in the next couple of weeks. If I get the time off work I will be sailing her myself, otherwise I'm gonna have to hire a skipper to get her as far as NYC and then take her myself on a shakedown cruise down LI Sound and over to Block Island.

If you happen to see me along the way, be sure to stop over for a libation.

Here is the listing: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1988.../United-States

The broker was Tim Wilbricht at Annapolis Yacht Sales. Great guy and very helpful, went above and beyond!!

Nice boat. I like aft head arrangements with opening to the v. Makes it feel bigger.

Re: Finally!

Thanks, the aft head, aft cabin (even if it's just a glorified quarter berth with the added privacy of a door) and walk out transom are the features that sold me on this model.

I would have preferred a C&C 34+ but my wallet wasn't thick enough

Re: Finally!

Congrats! I also like the name especially...That boat should hold it's value too I would think...c&C's have a good performance rep...just some of the other issues from early 80's gave 'em an asterisk along with many other boats from that era...by 1988...about all the screw ups that could be made with a newbuilding product(fiberglass) in 30 years since it went mainstream had pretty much been made already...and your boat pre-dates the '90-'91 recession that drove resin/glass prices through the roof finally...so it's likely well laid up with thick glass....

Re: Finally!

Congratulations! Hope you're able to get the time off so you can sail her all of the way back!
