Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.
thanks
Steve

  • Help on a 25

    I am looking at joining the CC Family and I was guided to this board. Can I please have some feed back on a 94 cc25 with Volvo 454 I/O. It has less then 700hrs. Any help would be great. I thank you in advance.

    That one should be one of the originals. I think Mac started making them in 94. Check the serial #.

    That engine should be fine since it most likely has a carb and not fuel injection. 700 hrs is not a lot of hours. You should be able to get at least 2000 hrs but time will hurt it more than hours.

    Is it fresh water cooled? If yes, the block should be fine.
    Find out how old the risers are. General rule of thumb is about 5-6 yrs. Maybe a little more on the manifolds if they are raw water cooled. Not sure how volvo did it back then.
    Life is to short for an ugly boat

      Split Decision,

      Thank you for the advice. The engine is a FWC block. The manifolds are the original. I hope to be spending more time on this site as an owner. Just have to find the vessel that fits me needs the best.

          have 25 with Merc duoprop. Small leak near riser at 1000 hours I changed the risers. 700 hrs, she's not even broken in yet.

          Love the boat - added the swim platform (must for diving) and serves as good place to keep large cooler/fish box.

          Under gunnel lights do not switch on seperate from cockpit lights - they fixed that in 96 or 97.

          Was it kept wet or dry? How much are they asking? In many ways it's a great boat and handles waters you probably shouldn't be in - and you feel safe. OK for a few overnights, however my bride wants a standup head - so when fund$ become available I will move up to a larger vessel (but that means dockage vs. trailer).
