Possible my memory is failing but I think Don Martin might have put P35 keels on a couple of these?

Sounds like something he might do. IIRC, the Viking 34 like Slick Silver had a Peterson style trapezoidal keel. Not sure if it was a refit or if the Viking 34 came that way.

The problem with that is the Ganbare 35 is listed as having 6500 lb ballast (I assume it is all in the keel) while the C&C 30 Mk1 has 3500. That would be a 3000 lb gain punching the C&C up to 11,000 lb. Would have required a much taller stick.

Perhaps a Chaser 29 or 33 keel? The 29 has the same amount of ballast as the C&C while the 33 is about 1500 lb more.

Either way, this one is most likely one of those modded C&Cs you are referring to.

Here's an old classic. Could be in good shape, or could be a project - hard to tell from the photos and description.

There was a Cal 39 that rated 132 in our division at RTC last weekend and when I did my pre-race research of the competition in our division, I noticed that they had been quite successful in RTC in the past, including winning their Division. OK, let's keep our eye on them....of course we didn't, and they won the Division.....friggin old Cal's!!

Great boat to take on the fbh here. Cam has had this boat in Gibsons since the mid 90s but it has not sailed in ages. Paces a 242 pretty good...

Sweet looking ride. Doesn't even need to be renamed...

Never even heard of a Choate 30. It has a Kirby 30 look to it.
