I appreciate the insight and will definitely check everything you listed.
I did take a look at the chain plates for the stays from the cabin before I bought the boat and they look to be in good shape, however I'll be pulling them out for a closer inspection when I go to replace the...
I have a line that runs around a single block (starboard stern) then forward through 3 sets of smaller blocks and wraps around the forestay at the deck.
There's nothing attached to the line whatsoever.
Anyone have any idea what it could be for?
It's on an '82 C25 if that helps...
She'll be coming out this fall for that very reason.
I'm honestly dreading it but it's gotta be done.
She's definitely spent a few winters in the water.
I'm not so concerned about ice damage being in Oklahoma.
I'm more worried about the infamous "Catalina smile".
I managed to get everything pulled out of the cabin and started on the V berth the other day.
Worked on cleaning the foam cushions yesterday and they're still drying today.
I used a bleach cleaner with a Scotchbrite pad to get the mildew off, wiped it down with clean water and then went back...
Thanks, rgranger and Tally Ho.
I honestly hadn't thought about pressure washing the cabin interior.
Figured I'd just take the handle off of my deck brush and go at it with a bucket of bleach water. Although I think I need to do some work on the bilge pump before I get too carried away with water...
Thanks, dlochner. Sound advice.
She's floating and won't be leaving the slip for a while yet.
I forgot to mention that I'll be sleeping aboard over the weekends and any other consecutive days off since the marina is so far from my home in Tulsa.
Priority number one for me is clearing all the...
I purchased a C25 today for $1400.00 USD with a running Suzuki outboard.
She's been sitting in a slip for several years and had a bottom job ten years ago.
The standing rigging LOOKS good but I'm more than likely going to have to replace all of the lines.
All the cabin cushions are there but...
Thanks for your input.
Actually makes me feel a bit better about pulling the trigger on this purchase.
I think I'll go ahead and buy her. The Suziki four-stroke outboard alone is probably close to the asking price anyway.
Hello, everyone. This is my first post here and my reason for creating an account.
I have an opportunity to purchase a 1982 C25 for just over 1k USD.
She is currently sitting in a slip. Purchasing the old girl gives me fist dibs on the slip which around here, fall slips are hard to come by.
