April 1st Sail

Well, there were no tricks on the sail today, but it was well deserved for several reasons:

1) I just finished the tune up this week on our Atomic Four (new points, condenser, rotor, cap, wires, and plugs), and it was time for a test run.

2) I’ve accepted a new job in London, England, so we won’t have too many sails more on our C&C 27 before she’s for sale, so it was time to go out. Come July 1st, we’ll be out of here.

So, we sailed today with our kids and my brother and sister-in-law. Very little traffic on the river, sun, and improving winds as the day went out. We sailed from 2 to 5 p.m., and it was a blast.

I’ve posted a set of pictures from today’s sail at

And the following picture gives an idea of how the sky was threatening, but we had no rain. It was chilly as the day went on:

A Small “All-Rounder” — C&C 27



Yesterday we looked at a C&C 27 that is intriguing. It’s a ’73 Mark II model, meaning it has the higher mast but retains the “swept back” rudder. It has the original Atomic 30 hp gas engine (2700 hours, but looked well maintained and reportedly runs well), as well as the pressurized alcohol stove. The head room isn’t perfect for me, but in other details the boat is very appealing.Compared to other “pocket cruisers” we’ve looked at this year, this boat has been cared for exceptionally well. There are few stress cracks on the deck, and chainplates looked fine. The sails of are high quality, and several are only 1-4 years old. The standing rigging is new from ’99, and all electronics (depth, speed, gps that can control the autopilot, and the four engine gauges) are working have been replaced or maintained well.

The C&C 27 doesn’t have quarter berths under the cockpit, and as a result the space under the cockpit seats is wide and open. (Good access to just about everything there, including the gas tank.)

The boat has been raced (it comes with two spinnakers) and taken offshore for the trip up to Puget Sound. (The standing rigging is heavy, it’s has an emergency rudder that mounts on the transom, and the motion comfort in the sea way was reported as good.)

So, it might be nice if it were 3 feet longer, but at 27 feet it doesn’t seem like a bad boat for day sailing as well as family cruising. The boat reportedly backs well, and the new folding prop is off-set to improve handling when motoring. It even has a Mark II head, which is supposedly legal for direct discharge.

Lots to think about with this boat– it’s a compromise (like all boats) in terms of age, size, tankage and other issues, but for us it might be a good “all-rounder” for sailing and cruising the Columbia River, and maybe making our first “good weather” forays off the coast (Newport or Puget Sound).
