    A new Chicago OD in the works? I could get onboard with that...

    Old Keel Bolt Questions

    We have owned our C&C 35 since new. Never touched the keel bolts and don't intend to.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    State said I need a surety bond. Surety bond company says I need appraisal and insurance. Back to OP.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    I thought I dropped enough hints... it's a crescent sloop - detroit's home vessel and the boat that stole my heart.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    I've been down this path before, so I know what I'm in for. Unfortunately, it happens to be the most valuable object in the universe, so there is no option to NOT save it.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    Will they do surety bonds? Because that's what I need from the insurance company.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    Guy I got it from is dead, he never titled it. Guy he stored it for is dead.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    Need it in order to obtain clear title. I don't want to do all my work and then not have clear ownership. Can't get title without insurance, can't get insurance without appraisal.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    Hi all, for insurance and registration purposes I need to obtain an "appraisal" for a POS 20-something 1960s fiberglass sloop with no mast, no sails, no engine and needs a deck job - that I acquired for free. There are no like boats that have ever been sold on the public market such that I can use KBB or Nada or boat trader. I cannot use the lead "scrap value" for my purposes and I do not want to PAY a company to laugh at me and tell me that the boat is worthless...I'm not allowed to declare the boat worthless. I'd pay a nominal fee I suppose. Any ideas on how I can get a legit appraisal value? I'd be happy to be able to demonstrate the boat being worth $100? $200? etc.

    Replacing a piece of toe rail

    I have done pulled and replaced the toerails on both of my C&C 35s. Plus helped another guy with his. Easy peezy with 4 people to do the whole boat in a weekend. Highly do not recommend 4200/5200 or other wet caulk. Just gets smeared when bending the rail. I highly recommend butyl tape.
