This is a picture at first moment I walked up to this boat.
It was May 2001.
A derelict project boat.
I told a broker I was looking for a C&C Landfall 38,
and he said he knew of one
he'd sold years before that had
fallen on hard times.
The boat hadn't been washed in years. The Broker spent so much
time cleaning it up the day
before showing it that he
fell asleep on the port bench.
I had pushed a bit, as I wanted to see it in 24 hours so he couldn't do much "used boat broker magic",
if you know what I mean.
It was in pretty bad shape....
