Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

This is a wonderful boat. Ive owned my 76 C&C 25 mk1 since August last year and Ive been thrilled with her. Very easy to sail - fast stiff and dry. However, like any boat from the 70's ive had to put in a ton of work. I have the vire 7 inboard, and i completely rebuilt her which took me about a month. I decided to leave her in the boat for the rebuild which was a huge pain, as engine access is the biggest issue with this boat!

Ive also done other minor things like redoing the plumbing, replacing the gally faucet/pump, replacing the icebox pump etc etc... Definitely buy this boat if you didnt back in 2002 when you started this thread!

Think these vessels might go good for single-handing w/code 6 fat head main and 140ish deck sweep genoa?
Whomping big asso on sprit of course.

Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

well lets jump 5 years. I'm looking to buy a 74 C&C 25. It looks to be in fair shape but I'm prepared to do some work if not too extensive. Have a real desire to sail from Seattle to Homer AK but have limited experience and will probably be single handing it. With my limited experience the C&C 25 looks to be a fair candidate for the cruise of course with some up grades. Anyone got a comment?

Re: C&C 25 - opinions?

I wanna do the Tour de France, but I am overweight, haven't ridden a bike in years, and have a mountain bike I bought at Walmart.

Answer, yes I could do it.
Nobody would watch.
Likelihood is I'd fail miserably.

With work on all my points, I could probably do it, but I'm certainly not going to win it.

How dedicated are you to getting it done? You'll likely need to spend 3-5 times what you spent on the boat to make it "worthy" of the trip.

The inside passage goes up to about Skagway or Juneau. People do the inside passage in all manner of boats. I think it has a lot to do with timing the tides.

Once you leave the inside passage, I think it is pretty exposed. C&C 25 wouldn't be my top pick.
