Ok so you are looking for a race boat. How seriously were you planning to race a C&C 27 around here?
My intention is to set the boat up for single/short handing and do all
the point-to-point/distance races on the calender.
Beer cans if crew available.
Are the boats in Ontatario already race-prepped, or are you going to be doing the same work to them after you ship them across country?
The boat you looked at in Pt Roberts looks like a nice entry level cruising boat that is well equipped for cruising. around here without having to do a whole lot of work to it. I am not sure what you would spend $20k on in terms of race-prep besides sails and a low drag prop.
Those boats in Ont have the advatage of only being used 4-5 months of the year and in fresh water.
They all come better equiped than the local example making them a better platform to start out with but of course any 35yr old boats gonna' need something.
Not saying that's my plan and I ain't flyin' anywhere. I'd simply find a good surveyor and tell him "be brutal".
If boat's worthy hire the wrap and have it shipped.
In deference to the broker I'm not going into any more detail about the one here unless you remove the link to it from your quote so someone doesn't accidentally come across it in a google search.
I'm sure it could be raced in Div 7
There's a Div 7? The Niagara I crew on rates same as C&C we're in Div 4.
Nope. Too big. I got a 27' berth at Civic boats gotta' fit there.
Besides, I ain't interested in the dinky main huge genoa set up been there done that with my SJ24.
