Attachment 12486 I used the wooden cradle (over built for this reason) on my flatbed trailer to get the boat home. Towed it with a 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD (Diesel) and since I balanced the vessel perfectly on the trailer and the trailer has electric brakes, it towed great for the 50 mile trip home.
I do still have the sails, mast, rudder, & fiberglass storage hatches/lids listed for sale on Craigslist Eastern NC.

There is absolutely nothing that will not sell! You can sell just about anything if the price is right. Just bought my C&C for a song which was less then 50% of the asking price because it was extremely dirty being dry-docked for two years close to large maple trees. it's windows also leaked, the companion hatchway was extremely damaged and the cockpit locker lids are soft- within 2 days of my purchase I repaired the windows and made a new door by simply using the old as a template. After power washing it I was actually very pleasantly surprised on how crisp and white it now looks. It's way beyond me why some people set a price way beyond of what they would actually accept and thus discouraging most buyers from even making an offer.

Re: Cored wood bulkhead on C&C 24

I have had to reseal my windows 3 times! The last time I decide to remove the core about a 1/4 inch past the mounting points for the window and fillit with epoxy thickened with high density filler and long strand glass (for strength). This did two things...eliminated the exposed core around the edge of the window. So if it did leak again the water would not enter the core. Also it created a much stronger base for the mounting of the window so hopefully it wont leak again.

Re: Cored wood bulkhead on C&C 24

If anyone needs any parts for a 1977 C&C 24, I finally gave up on selling mine whole and am beginning to part it out this week. Not looking forward to cutting up a perfectly good boat but at least all of the parts will be available to help keep other boats on the water.

ahab211 Thanks, I'll have to properly clean it up and maybe replace the window. In my defense before using the ultraglaze, I scraped, used acetone and sanded the window surface but the gelcoat was badly chipped by someone previously removing the window. I use paint and decal tape to cosmetically hide it but the fit was poor and I'm sure this added to the leaking. They actually used machine Nuts and bolts to reattach the windows without any sealant. The windows leaked badly and the cushions were ruined. I subsequently got the boat cheap and had to have the cushions reupholstered.Hopefully I'll get a good seal this time.

sailingdog If you used a silicone-caulk/sealant, then you're going to have to sand the gelcoat to get rid of the silicone contaminants. Washing or cleaning with solvent isn't really sufficient, and anything else you use will have trouble bonding properly unless you sand the area.

There was a damp water mark on the cushion below the window so it must be leaking again near the top of the window. I used a G.E. Sealant(Ultraseal) and not a butyl window gasket. That was after making the mistake of using silicone sealant and having it leak like a sieve. Sometimes it doesn't pay to take the cheaper,easy fix.
