C&C 30 MK1 Advice
Long time reader, first poster here. Always dreamed of owning my own boat and thinking the time has finally arrived where I am in a position to at least take the plunge on a starter boat. Long term goal is to learn for a few years before doing some proper blue water cruising.
I live in Toronto so unfortunately pickings are somewhat slim up here, however, I found an older C&C mk1 that seems to be in decent shape from the pictures. From what I understand, issues like the Atomic 4 gas engine and mast step rotting aside, I hear this is a fantastic, forgiving boat to learn on.
I would really value the opinion of some of the experts here on this particular boat: kjiji ad ID # 1368669052
looks like the seller is asking $15k which my gut tells me is likely about 2x overvalued. I think ive seen similar years go for ~8k in the past, although perhaps this has a few more upgrades/is better maintained. Any and all thoughts/advice would be warmly welcomed!
Also, does anyone know a reputable surveyor in Toronto or Port Dover (where the boat currently lives) that they would be willing to recommend?
Thank you all and looking forward to any responses!
