Re: C&C 32 can anyone tell me about them?
chef, the alternator has been changed out at some point, I'll have to look to see what it is.
I'm figuring the 4 hours running at various speeds between 1800 and 2700rpm today will have helped.
There also was a higher quality charger and inverter put aboard but I have not dug into the electronics to figure out what was done. Someone spent a decent amount of coin on this boat across the course of its existence. The neglected things are the sailing characteristics, running rigging. Sails were even cared for, but only for the tune of making it more comfortable to sail. Nothing wrong with that, just I want a balance of comfort and performance.
Prior owner had the boat for 4 years, and hadn't ever replaced the batteries. I need to look more closely but I think they are standard deep cycle lead acid interstate group 27s.
