Am going to look at one that's been sitting in a garage for a number of years and I'm not the greatest motor guy. Thanks in advance for any tips, and by the way are there any other early c-29's in this forum?

Also, I am looking for a pair of the stern chocks for my 8.7 meter. Anyone know of a 8.7 meter that is being scrapped?

the alan payne designed columbia 8.7 is a much beamier boat than the s&s designed c-29. in foul weather, i'd prefer the s&s hull, but for comfort and interior room the 8.7 wins..........
