Approx. trailering wgt.: 4,800 lbs.

During her 11-year production run, the C&C 24 (smallest boat in the C&C fleet) unsurprisingly went through some design changes in her accommodations plan. Early boats (1975 to about 1977, as shown here) had the head located aft to port and a small galley aft to starboard. On later boats, the head was moved forward to the traditional position between the V-berths, and the aft galley was expanded to fill the whole space around the companionway steps. Best features: Her wide beam helps to boost her Space Index to a level 10 percent above her nearest comps. The same wide beam plus her deeper draft (except for the Cal 24-3's optional deep fin keel) lend her an extra bit of stability going to weather. Worst features: At least one owner mentioned that she tended to pound a little in choppy conditions. Two owners reported that the prop occasionally cavitated in waves. Still another owner observed that his fiancée did not like the head arrangement near the companionway in one of the early boats. The woman complained that a mere canvas curtain did not afford enough privacy, and that caused the owner to buy a larger boat. (Engaged sailors beware!) Some say the settee berths are too narrow. Several owners mentioned difficulty in replacing foggy plastic windows, which were factory-glued to the fiberglass. In the end they perservered, using new acrylic and 3M-5200, plus throughbolts.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
