Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

The keel crack is common. Bolted on keels work a bit so very hard to keep a crack from appearing between the keel and hull. Putting in a non flexible filler like Bondo is just a band aid the won't do a thing except give you something to do each year refairing the keel to hull joint.

The hogging of the hull at the chainplate bulkhead is a sign that something isn't right. Sounds like the shroud forces are causing the bulkhead to lift and sucking the hull in with it. Fixable but a lot of work reinforcing/redesigning the chainplate anchor.

Agree with others that this boat has problems you don't want to tackle. Having said that, probably sails really well in light air.

Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

HaHa on me , I should have said Hi BES New Guy , To me a guy looking at a 35' boat for 5K is looking for a project and that boat certainly is . A big one for sure but doable a bit at a time .

Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

Thank you all for your reply. As I said before, I just can't make the numbers work. Additionally, the electrical system is spotty, the water system non existent and hasn't been used for years. The hull needs bottom paint, the hull above the waterline buffed, and the lettering etc. redone. All of these are things I can do but I'm not retired so can't spend months doing all the work. If it was in my yard, I may be able to make it work but as it stands, I just don't think I have the time to get it the way I want it and agree it would not be a good investment. The owner says that the engine runs and starts right up each spring. It is cold here and the boat out of the water so couldn't start it. I think I will take the advice given and look at different boats.

Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

Prolly a good idea BES , when you are working it's different through in some kids a mortgage car payments it gets tight . Not to mention a small weather window to work on a boat . Although I did find it interesting about the evolution of the MKII , apparently the boat you were considering is not a one off .

Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

It's mostly a time issue. If I could bring it home and work on it, it would help on the time issue but adding the transport fee (I live 5 hrs away) to the price, and the transfer fee back to water when it is ready to sail, just made the financial picture even worse. I'll just keep sailing what I have and keep my eyes open.

In the end, it was fun researching the boat, meeting the owner, looking at the boat, and dreaming about what it could be. The C&C 35s are beautiful boats. As one of the posters stated, sometimes the search is as much fun as the ownership.

Thanks all again for the info.

Re: C&C 35 Mark 2

I just looked at a C&C 35MkII with dimples at the forward lower shroud chain plates. It also has wire rigging - not rod. Is the boat you were referring to in Oregon? Thanks, Alison

Goood advice given to walk away from this one.
You’ll have enough projects so you don’t need major ones.
The smile is common on C&C but needs looking at
The chainplates issue deforming the hull...not good
Modifying a proven performance racing /cruiser.....why would anyone do that
Cored hulls not necessarily bad if in good condition as they stiffen the boat
Mixture of rod and wire rigging...sounds like a quick fix.
The boat sounds like it was not well maintained. First Nd a C&C that was
