Re-instate the Esposito fellow!

 

We all only respect those who best us troof. When Espo disses WASPs it is all about his great respect for tribe Saxon kicking his dago arse.

 

We just celebrated an important anniversary of the Normans kicking Saxon ass and making them better for it.

Me thinks the flickings will continue till morale improves around here... the ed is a big proponent of these things getting settled "face to face", so perhaps thinning the herd (as clean would say) is a good thing

 

This herd is already thinning fast of its own volition-- soon it will be thinner than Clean's mop.


In Topic: New C & C Redline 41, a total flop?

That's the first C&C I can ever recall not being intuitively identifiable as a C&C.

 

Even though they changed so much over the years you could always tell - sort of like a Benz.

 

Good point.   They did try to make the interior look like more recent C&C's.  The drawings have a split window combined with the opening ports which make it look like a C&C...kinda!   Nobody tried to hide the origin of the boat.   I like the boat and the design.  I think the price is a great deal for someone who wants to race and cruise but does not want to pay for that sail inventory new.  The downside is that IRC has moved forward and this boat is older an older design.   If the new owners want to be more competitive Mark Mills does offer consultations!

 

I cannot imagine the cost of that boat new.   I looked at what was included and guessed at how much the boat has been used.  It is a good deal IF the new owner wants to race and get their game up.  For a person who wanted something better than a Bene First 40 this would work.

 

If I owned the C&C brand I am not sure what to do with it.  The Brand was all about Racer/Cruisers and the demand for non-one design RC's is about zilch.   Maybe powerboat cruisers for sailors such as MJM  has done.  Combine one design sailboats with powerboat cruisers?

 

I don't like the idea either!   Last gasp for a dying brand.

Before we all get too misty-eyed over the C&C brand,remember it failed twice over the last 20(?) years.

 

This is probably its last chance at survival so you can't criticize the current brand owners for taking a different tack.
