Interesting to see where is this Christina located, what's the website?

I don't think its the boat, I think its the bother of climbing the mast or winching in the genoa, some sail-folk are getting on in years ?

Ill check as I am looking at them too! Im based in South Africa....Seattle is far!

We may very well cross tracks one day.....that HC-C may still be worth another look, look for rust marks/weeping on her topside rigging, close to connections. Check for brownish stains .....:|

Send a surveyor to look at her properly!

@ TQA....is that your present-day estimate?

I'll look again! Thanks for the tips... The unknowns are what scares me, and I am looking on behalf of someone else, so, I am even more critical.

Hey there - Update on 48 HC Christina... We have visited her again, and learned a bit more about some of the mysteries... as it turns out, the water damage is the most minor issue. The engine will need to be replaced the reported 'oil leak' by one agent was then reported as a 'fuel leak'... the number of hours on the engine, and the history of the boat... stored in Alaska for a time, Hawaii and Oregon before Washington... With the work that has been done it is apparent they are looking for the source of the leak. All this with the consideration of age and hours tells us it needs to be replaced. The standing rigging will need to be replaced before heading offshore... all these costs added to the price of the boat means it is way overpriced. Seattle generally has a higher premium on boats... Now, if someone wants to use her on an occasional weekend and liveaboard her in the Puget Sound, then its good.

I hope that you have found what you are looking for.

We have moved on and are looking boats of similar caliber but not HC. Sadly as I lived aboard an HC38T for 4 years, and it's hard to compare ANY boat to a HC as it is like comparing apples and oranges.... nothing compares to HC.
