I found my BCC in the back of a boat yard south of Annapolis in terrible shape. I brought it home and built a bow shed around her and rebuilt her in 3 years, (new deck, rudder, hatches, bulwarks, interior and engine). I launched it in 2016 just on time for my retirement, and I have been enjoying it ever since, ranging from Maine to Florida. BTW I found the original papers in the boat including a letter signed by Lyle Hess to the original owner.
We're keen to grow a great online BCC community, so we'd really appreciate if you could take just 30 seconds to signup to Disqus, our trusted comments system (one time only), and share any thoughts for others to enjoy. Your personal data is utterly private, and will NEVER be shared with anyone else. Let's grow this thing!
