Captain Bob sent me the following photos of the boat he is interested in. He wondered about the vintage. My best guess was mid to late 1990's. It appears later than my 1993 boat, but could be anywhere in the mid 90's. The HIN will give us the clue.

HIN should be a definitive answer to vintage. If it is goin to look like a C-Dory and not too much like a rebuild, a factory cabin top would sure seem worth it, both in effort and time, if not in Boat units.

Wow, could be a fun and not too difficult project if you have basic laminating skills and use epoxy resin and fiberglass tape.
I worked when young for a fiberglass boat builder as a patern maker and we often sent out repair sections for boats that we laid up in the moulds, it would be very easy in this case, IF they have spare time for your one off top.
Good luck, Micah

Another thought, you could just tab the new top in place (could be time consuming for exact placement) then hire a good glasser to finish the lamination of the joint if you are not sure if you have the skills yourself.

I'm curious what the boat is selling for, could be a good deal if the price is very right. Lots of times the word c-dory adds some zeros to the price tag. How long was she under water?

I'd only take that boat if they paid me decent $ to take it, and even then I'd think about it very hard.

You'd be pretty much rebuilding it completely from the hull up. Bet the trailer is in a similar condition too.
