Hi
I was looking at a C&C 36 from 1980 and it was in quite bad shape, it was a strong smell of mold in the boat.
And I’ll find 2-3 inch water in storage behind the seat at starboard. I am worried about that the water is coming from the mounting between the deck and the hull.
Is there problem with the older C&C boats generally and the C&C 36 from 1980 especially with that it is leaking there?

Any boat that can be described as "in bad shape" on a brief inspection sounds like a walk away job to me unless you are looking for a lot of work. The water you describe could be coming from a number of sources and, in the circumstances, the smell of mould is not surprising.

Have you read SalingDog's tips on boat inspection trips in the "Boat review and purchase" forum? Essential reading for anyone thinking about a boat purchase, in my opinion.
