Good afternoon everyone, My name is Chad and I have a 1971 C&C Corvette that I recently purchased and am in the process of going thru everything. When I started doing deliveries I was nicknamed "Swab" as it seemed I was capable of any job or fixing anything. Besides the Corvette I have a 22 foot Trojan Powerboat (for sale), 25 foot Chris Craft, and an 18 foot Hobie. For having so many boats my friends determined that I deserved the rank of Commodore thus I am now "Commodore Swab" I have sailed around the FL Keys where I live as well as the Bahamas, parts of the Caribbean, Dominican Republic, and parts of the Western Med after finishing my last transatlantic. I am a mechanic/engineer so customizing, fabricating, and designing is all relativly easy for me. The Corvette I am rebuilding is going to be built into a blue water cruiser, since she has a full keel with a centerboard and a heavy glass (no core) hull this should work nicely. She has a simple Yanmar inboard which I hope to drive a generator off us so I can use it as propulsion or power generation. I will also have a below deck autopilot, tiller pilot, and windvane. For power generation 1 small solar panel, the aforementioned generator, a shaft generator, and a wind generator. The tankage has not been worked out yet.
