Hello Everyone,

I have officially downsized to an Angler 16, due to the fact that I'm stuck in the Midwest and wanted a boat more conducive to trailering adventures. My restored C-Dory 26' Pro Angler is still for sale at http://waypointmarinegroup.com/pre-owned-boats/ . For those not familiar with it, I documented the restoration here: http://www.c-brats.com/viewtopic.php?t=22511 .

Thanks,
Travis

Travis,
Are the cockpit controls for the main engine and if so, how is the kicker controlled/steered? Also, how many gallons of gas in the two tanks and did you work on the tanks during the renovation? Lastly, do both axles on the trailer have brakes and if so, surge or electric of electric over hydraulic? I followed your trail on this one, great job!!!

I saw Great Republic being restored at Bitter End Boatworks, nobody is better than Jesse at this kind of work, and somebody needs to run, not walk, to buy this boat, it is a rarity. Bob, while you are asking questions and waiting for answers, somebody else is going to be having a survey done and making an offer! Just sayin'!

This 26' and the 27' with a Lugger 4 cylinder engine in Anchorage, Alaska (https://anchorage.craigslist.org/boa/6187045466.html) are to die for! When Great Republic was first on the market before the restoration it was a great boat. Thanks for the encouragement Pat!!

Very cool boat. Yeah, this has been on the market for a while! Someone needs to buy this ASAP.

Good luck Travis.

Hello Bob,

Just the main engine controls are at the rear helm. The kicker is connected to via an extension off of the hydraulic steering on the main. Still have to push the start button on the kicker and adjust the throttle on the tiller. The Garmin auto pilot is plumbed into the main (not a TR1) but still works flawlessly while the main is off and only trolling with the kicker. The Garmins at the main helm and rear helm are networked together. The 2 fuel tanks hold 80 gallons each and while we were restoring they were found to be in good shape so Jesse I believe only replaced the fuel pick up hoses in the tanks. The trailer brakes are surge, and I'm not sure if they are on one axle or both. To tell you the truth once I got the boat to Washington I never used the trailer as I always launched off the slings at the marina where I kept the boat. I towed from Vermont to Bellingham with a 3/4 ton and never felt compromised while towing at freeway speeds.

Thanks all for your words of encouragement. Selling Great Republic is going to be sad, but having her sitting unused is even more sad. I hate it when work gets in the way of grand adventure plans!

Thanks,
Travis

Well, Travis, I visited her yesterday at the end of a day-long bike ride. At 8 p.m. I walked over the locks and into Waypoint dry storage to look at cool boats like C-Dory's, Sea Sports, a Uniflite or three, and Great Republic. Man, she sure is in good shape. Her blue stripe is less dinged and scratched than Bambina's, and I hardly ever pulled pots. OK, never. And that 200 Yamaha is a fine machine, and hardly looks used.

I was able to do more than just look. As the sun descended on this Independence Day, I reassured your distant girl that soon she'd feel a new owner's warm embrace once again.

Thanks for the reply Travis. Almost enough room to square dance in the cockpit. The Yamaha 200 is a great motor from all the reviews and being as light as it is, a good choice on this boat. I will think hard on this one.

That looks like a really good buy to me. If I was younger I would take a hard look at it.
