BTW- The 35-3 is a Rob Ball design like the 27-5, 29-2,30-2,33-2. I like his work and think he is been very under rated as a designer.
Centerboard is a great feature. Allows you too reef later 20-22 vs 17 and point higher to windward. It is a weighted CB so it doesnt rattle lilke some other fiberglass ones and needs to be put down gently. It gives great flexibily to gunkholing as you can decrease draft to 4'6.

The model ois simple and operates with a cabin top winch. It is a rope cable which does down to the keel and pulls the board up around a piviting pin.
No leaks. It does howver mnean your boat has a very shallow bildge

The 35 MKIII k/c is a rocket ship of a boat in light and moderate air up to 20.
She will sail faster than most larger Bene/ Cat hunters and point higher. She and the Sabre 34/36 are similar with the Js a little quicker. PHRF is 127. She is a very well balanced boat and handles seas up to 10-12 ( good interval) easily

We dont race ours anymore and use her a a costal cruiser going to Long Island and New England in the Atlantic from the Chessie. These are not production boats in the interior but are quite comfortable and spacious. V berth is large and longer than almost any you will find. Anchor locker is huge and you can stand in it and close the lid. Lots of good quality winches ours has 7, Well designed Nav station. Geat table configuaration. We actually leave ours down so we have a couch as most of our meals are in the cockpit. The table is off to the side though so going forward is easy and safe and you wont get impaled. Head is small but definately manageable, Galley is well set up with a large box for refrigeration. Cockpit is perfect for safety. Ours is set up to singlehand as I do that a fair amount. Engine shoehorned in but is accessable. Good solid chainplates

What to watch for. Windows like all other C&C leak, mast step, C&C smile and all thru deck and hull for proper setting so no core infiltration.

I highly recommend this model. It is the best of the 35 and one of the best models they ever made

We have added many items to ours fore comfort such as tankage etc so PM me for more info

Chef has the c/b model. You might want to send him a PM. I have not sailed the c/b model, mine is a keel. Awesome boats!

I love my 35/3. I second Chef's recommendation that you join the c&c group. They know these boats inside and out - literally.
J is right. The floor there is over 2 inches thick there as I have bored through it and installed an alternate SS tube on feet for additional electronics wires which would not fit into my SS pedestal gaurd for the Radar, Autopilot, and Chartplotter. Maybe there is a leak on the bolts, or the seal under the pedestal,

The pedestal is located aft of the fuel tank. Is that where the leak is?

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Good advice the ends of the rods. Propably original and 29 years old. Should be done every 10 years. See if you can find where the water is getting in.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

I was there with surveyor and pedestal didn't move or flex. the hammer sounded solid. but drips down onto fuel tank. 2500 dollar repair a bit scary.
getting a rig survey as well insurance require. looks to be all good but you cant tell about the ends surveyor recomended renewing the ends of the rods.
there is a few other odd anoyances. hose's ect.
hope to get her ready for a trip up the coast this spring.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

My guess is that area under the pedestal is plywood core. The rest of the cockpit is mostly balsa core. Lean heavily against the pedestal. If the sole flexes your core is likely shot. See attached picks of the core fix on my 29-2. If the plywood is wet then drilling hole/epoxy fill won't work. The plywood holds water and it has no way to get out. The plywood is shot. solid glass area under pedestal and rudder post is now 1-1/2" glass. No water problems anymore and a really solid pedestal. Well worth the $2500 it cost to have it done.

Re: 1984 c&c 35-3

Congrats on the new boat. Window leaks are common on our C&C's and there is a definate procedure for replacement. South Shore Yachst has a lot of the older C&C parts also.

As far as the pedestal leak, what exactly is leaking. Is the floor soft? This also goes for the decks. Our boats are alol blasa cored at least to the waterline, some all the way. If water intrudes it can wet and destroy the core requiring complete replacement of the area in the worst case scenario. First thing is to identify the area which is wet and also the reason. Then to see the level of repair. Some are easy quick fixes like drying out or digging out the core and refilling with epoxy. Some may require a cut out and reglassing, depends on how much the area is affected. Hopefullu you areas are not in load bearing areas such as chainplates.

In any event it is imperative that all thru deck/ hulkl ntrustions be checked and sealed corrrectly and maintain their integrity.

I also suggest you join the C&C owners group

C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center

You have a great boat (obviously I am prejudiced as I own a C&C 35MKIII also)...fast and comfortable to cruise with and see was initially made well. It up to the owner to mainatain that. Post some pictures when you get a chance of her and affected areas.
