I don't actively hang around yards enquiring about derelict boats, but have only seen a couple 80s Catalinas and Hunters go bye bye unless you start talking about little daysailers.

I have seen quite a few in the 30 foot range in some of the local boat yards back lots. Some are too far gone to even think of doing, and one that was for sale for like 3 years even caught fire (Hunter 31) and I think damaged another member's boat here. But have not seen them get cut up, but likely will before too long. Soft decks being the leading cause along with moldy rotted interiors. One C&C 28 from the mid to late 80's was for sale, and I looked at it and the owner had not been there since Hurricane Sandy and it had had the companionway blown open. Know what a boat with an open companionway open for two and a half years smells like?!?!!eek I believe it has been cut up since.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

How about it, Jeff? Reasons? Ideas on the thought experiment?
Anyone else?

Seems Jeff has disengaged. Anyone else know of boats that have been scrapped for "major structural issues" and what they were/how they happened? I have since found out about three- all soggy decks that no one thought was worth the effort. That happens to all boats of the era.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Mid 70's C&C 27 scrapped due to soggy decks, I looked at this boat, when you walked the deck brown water would squish upthrough the cracks. Don't think the owner was impressed when I offered to take it off his hands but I wouldn't give him any money for it. I looked at it in the spring, by fall it was in a dumpster/sold for scrap metal.

Sean,
I have not intentionally disengaged. I have had a lot going on this week and will get back to you when I come up for air.

That's great. I fully understand. I've been the same except for this thread. Had seen you pop up elsewhere and thought you might have decided to leave the discussion. I've certainly done that when I've not felt I had anything further to add

So Bob Perry posted a pic of a 60s Morgan on the Steel/fiberglass thread. Seems that guy thinks it's worth it. Wonder what he's done to her?

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

That guy is Tom and I ran into him on Cruising Anarchy. He keeps that boat in mint condition. It is 47 years old and is still very actively raced. It's shoal draft, centerboarder designed by Charlie Morgan. To my eye it's ideal.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Geez, Imagine that, a GOB plying the waters still, the keel hasn't fallen off, the hull isn't shredding fiberglass layers, and the owner is having the time of his life. How can it be? Me thinks a bit of elbow grease and a passion for keeping the old gals running. Nice!
