condition: good
length overall (LOA): 25
make / manufacturer: Catalina
propulsion type: sail
year manufactured: 1980

Purchased this from marina this winter after they got possession as Abandoned Boat. Title and registration in good order. I have had many sailboats. Not an expert, but Sunfish up to 35' wooden Yawl. Hobie 16 most fun and 35' Sparkman-Stevens yawl was the best sailing. Irwin 32.5 that I sailed NY to FL solo one winter was poor.
.............Fin Keel 4' draft. ....... No trailer........... No lift (that I could find) at that lake. ........... pla
Trailers are available for these, but not from me.
--------------------------------you might SELL ME YOUR TRAILER...... specific to C-25. -----------------------
If I fail to sell the boat, I will buy (or adapt my other trailer) for it and bring it home (to Panama, OK) in June. Oklahoma Current registration sticker on boat now.
My plan is to put it on ebay, but local sale first.... and at less than ebay price.
Was sitting in slip a year. No leaks. No thru-hulls. Set up for porta-potty. Fresh water tank. No battery included. Several bags of sails. I looked, but haven't laid them out for pics. Will do that. Main is in place on boom, but is covered with sail-colored canvas. Probably good. Running gear/lines look good. Believe all bagged sails are foresails. (seemed crisp) Might be a torn main in a bag too. Boat looks pretty good. Clean and bright. Not pristine and perfect. Brought outboard home to play with, but haven't tried to start it yet. Compression good. Gas still smelled good. Couple of cleats lose, but I'll fix. Don't see signs of saltwater corrosion.
Pop top. Dinette layout. Quarterbirth original material on cushions. Marina built a companionway hatch cover because slats lost. Tiller covered, usable, but weathered some. Some light growth on hull, but wipes off with sponge. Too cold to jump in the water yet. I looked at the boat and bought it. Took several pics at that time. Going back to tinker and inspect more. Mast step designed for self-stepping.
My storage paid til June 6th. Don't know that it would transfer. Nice folks at the beautiful family-run marina (Paradise Cove Marina) at the state park.
Trade for good 28' tandem dual Pintle trailer, old backhoe (as good as boat), old Case dozer, or aircraft. If you want to trade Your (similar) C-25 for a flying (not nearly new) Challenger 1 ultralight aircraft, we can do that. Rather have your 450 Case dozer or an 850D with a good transmission but bad motor. No bikes, RV's, vehicles wanted. George in Panama, ok at 8sixty, 9seventyeight, 35eightysix. Three or 4 hour drive Dallas to boat.
