25 years and I finally have my BCC

Hello all! I just acquired Grey Mist hull #035. She’s gutted except for bulkheads and engineless. But I’m in love. All the important bits are there even all the sails. Hull is in fantastic shape. It will be moving to a workshop in central Wisconsin in a few weeks once the weather settles. I’ve dreamed of these boats since I was cruising in my early 20’s. I’ve had several Cheoy Lees and a Valiant 40. But this boat has always been the one. I look forward to sharing progress and contributing here and on Facebook.

Wow you really had your work cut out for you. Grey Mist has been under cover for years and in remarkable shape on the exterior. I’m excited to unwrap her this spring.

Jack,
I’m about two year from beginning our major refit before we head off full time cruising. I’ve been thinking a lot about the covering boards, hull to deck joint, and bulwarks. If you have some time, I’d certainly appreciate a chat on the topics seeing the photos you posted.
Cheers,
Mike

Jack,

I’d love to see some photos of the forepeak. I’d like to add a berth in mine with an exposed anchor locker. I’ve seen something similar years ago
