This is my second CC that I bought in April 2008 from a fellow CCFan down in Nashville, TN. My dad and I made the 10 hour one way trip twice in the same day...well worth it. Spent a lot of time cleaning it up when we got it home and other than some scratches in the gel she looks great...well, could use a polish on the stripe. I had to add a new blower, strainer, ignition switch, thermostat, and O-ring seal on the trans shift valve right away. Cleaned and oiled all the teak and all was well last summer. This spring I had the trans rebuilt and replaced, damper plate, and added an ACME 542 prop. Velvety smooth now. I look forward to many years wakeboarding behind this boat.
