Re: C&C 24 Former Yard Derelict - First Sailing Season Afloat in 10 Years

Congratulations and nice job Captain Murph and Nancy.

We too have a 1975 C&C 38 that we've had now for 4 years. It was well neglected when we got it and we've been working on it ever since. We've got several pages worth of a refit list - mostly mechanical. No major issues just a lot of updating and repair. I want to start on the cosmetic side now.

We love how the boat handles and performs. A great sailing boat.

Check out MaineSail's website. He has detailed instructions on how to do fixes such as portlights.

I used GE Ultra Glaze on my C&C 24 windows and it has held up for six years! It is black, pliable and is used with a caulking gun.

Capt Murph, you blog was a nice read and informative. I have also sent you an email requesting a manual when you do get time. I am working on redoing my new to me C&C 24 (presently still owned by my dad that I am purchasing from him but working on it as my own since as soon as he gets his new boat she is all mine). It has been fun working on her and you really learn your boat by doing so. I should have taken more pictures as I have been doing the changes but I haven't. But Kendrick I can say having new windows made was easier then trying to redo the old windows. Mine are installed outside of the old frames. Plus following any water leaks can keep going on. One tip, the C&C's didn't have backing plates under any of the hardware, I would recomend making some as you go. Especially for the stantions.

It's GE Silpruf SCS2000. Structural silicone adhesive with +/-50% movement capacity. *disclaimer* I haven't actually used the stuff, but I am told it is the right stuff for the job.
I think it was under $20 for a 300ml tube and can be applied with a standard gun.

Re: C&C 24 Former Yard Derelict - First Sailing Season Afloat in 10 Years

Wow, I never even thought of seeing thru to the adhesive and I'm not even using the tinted stuff!
When you talk about the tape is that to hold everything in place until things cure?
I'd really like know the name of the GE adhesive you are going to use before I invest in the MS590
The windows are being cut and will be ready by Monday. One of the openings however came out a bit rougher than the other, Im going to sand it a bit???? I was afraid old adhesive might affect the bond. I'm not sure if I need to do more than that?

Yep, I read a similar thing regarding the glazing tape and painting it black (feathering I believe it is called). Just keeps everything tidy.

I started to replace my windows and then cut a deal with the local plastics supplier so that I am going the prep work and he is doing the install. He also uses the GE product, but uses double sided glasing tape on the insie edge of the frame to hold the window and reduce the oozing of the adhesive. He also paints the inside edge of the plastic black so that from the outside you cant see any bubles or voids.
