    Back when Watts Sails became Sobstad I called the new company "Wattstad" I'll look through my pile of old sails and sail bags for any Watts labels. Blackbeard

    Always thought the 43 was the prettiest production boat C&C ever built. Hey Titmouse......the 43 was built at the Custom was not a production boat....they were all different.....glad to help. The hulls were different?. The June 1971 magazine article/review stated: The accommodations of the "43" may be varied within the standard hull and deck moldings. From the September 1971 magazine C&C advertisement ...'Limited editions' (with custom designed and custom built interiors) and "one off" yachts... "Built by Bruckmann". Our 1970 C&C 43 is hull #1 of the Limited Edition series 43's. Launched as "Arieto", the interior is significantly different than the other 43's I have seen or seen pictures off. The hull, deck, and keel are similar to the early 43's however I have read that some of the 43's completed in the late 70's (maybe hull # 14 or 15) had updated keels and rudders. In the mid 70's hulls # 1 and 2 ("Arieto" and "Destination") had their sterns bobbed (looked like a C&C 39 stern) to help with the IOR ratings. To my knowledge these were the only two hulls bobbed. Hull #2 has since had its stern mostly restored with the addition of a swim step. Hull #1 is still bobbed. There are a few full custom 43's with different hull and deck designs. There is also a Landfall 43 that was designed and built for longer range cruising. Some of these newer 43's were built in the 80's. Blackbeard

    Here are the "then and now" photos for the 1971 C&C 43 Arieto (then Phantom, Esta Es, & Calypso): 1971 Arieto, maybe at SORC 1971 or 1972: 1980's as Phantom on the great lakes (later as Esta Es): 2009 as Calypso on Puget Sound:
  4. I'd love to see any photos of your boat that you have,if you don't mind of course.
