Shrink-wrapped fin-keel western-Michigan C25 and its cradle took a tumble in the gales of December causing a 3-foot crack in its side. Although it looks superficial to me, local shop estimated $14,000 to repair (just from the pictures). Having much less into the boat, doesn't make sense to repair, and insurance company totaled it.

Any advice on where to advertise its parts 'n' pieces. Things I think might be useful to others: mast/shrouds/stays, rudder/tiller, swim ladder, setee boards/cushions, cabin ladder, sails (crisp main and 140? genoa), rebuilt manual bilge pump, etc.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Never approach the dock faster than you want to hit it.

Steve N -- When and wherever you list it, please include if it is a standard or tall rig, pop-top, dinette configuration, and if any items are in particularly good -- or not so condition. parting out is a painful experience, especially if you have had a boat for a long time.

I'm sorry to hear that... that's always sad to see. Do you mind if I PM you with a list of bits I need for the boat I picked up last fall? I'm in Salt Lake City, UT, so I imagine I'll take a hit on the shipping but if you're willing to ship it would help me out.

PM'd you several days ago thru this site.

I'm still interested in the tiller and sails if they are still available.

I'm sorry for any confusion and some not being able to find the facebook post. My intention was to post items one by one and ask for offers on each as I've taken them off the boat (since I have no idea what stuff might be worth). Several folks have expressed interest in certain items. But, I am now holding out some hope that I might find another C25 to take my broken boat's place.

Funny (not funny) how you don't realize what you have until it's gone.

So, between never having done this before and the trauma of parting out the boat, I've not been a very good seller. Please forgive me?

Moving forward, I think the best thing for me to do will be to post individual items on the forum swap meet and on the facebook group as I have them in hand and am ready to sell them.

Hope that makes sense. I appreciate your interest.
