Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

Hi again,

Its been 4 more years...and I'm still working on that witty reply...day and night. So far all I have is "I know you are, but what am I?"

In the meantime, I sold my C&C25...what a mistake.
My kids were getting bigger, and we just didn't all "fit" below for the 3-4 night cruises we like. Also, I wanted to go on longer trips, farther, since they were getting old enough to handle it. Regardless of the boat, you still need to bring the same amount of food, water, clothes, WWgear, dinghy, etc. My biggest complaint was the lack of permanent stove. I used an origo 1500 single burner stove which I put on the icebox lid when in use. You can imagine trying to get something out of the icebox while cooking supper.

Since it was very well equipped (3 anchors, GPS, VHF, LEDs, new upholstry, dinghy, 3 jibs, furling, etc, etc) it sold quickly for a good price. I was very sad to see it go. Fortunately I took lots of pix of my kids aboard while they were little.

I have since replaced it with an old Pearson 30. I'm enjoying an inboard diesel for greatly increased range, and lots more space below...including a 2 burner Origo 3000 mounted in the galley. I've got chartplotter and autohelm, and a 25watt VHF. Mostly its just bigger. But I really miss the shallow draft, especially when I hit a rock at one of my favorite anchorages.

I would still recommend the C&C25, especially for solo sailors and young families.

I'll check back in 2017, as promised, but thought an update wouldn't be out of order...sorry if my rants are becoming too frequent!

8 more months and this thread remains valuable. At this point I am looking at buying the boat from the OP

Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

Very much looking forward to a witty reply - however the C&C 25 that I am considering may be gone by then! Thanks for the input. Late replies on an old thread will help somebody along the line!

Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

Someone answer for me please, did the OP buy a C&C 25, get married/divorce/retire and take up golf?

I'll check back in a year for my answer.

Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

I think you will be waiting a long time since April of 2002 was their last post. Maybe you should drop them a PM and let us know what they reply.

I never did understand the heartburn over people revisiting old threads.
