In 1961, when two Canadian sailors—George Cuthbertson, a mechanical engineer, and George Cassian, an aircraft designer—formed the design group Cuthbertson and Cassian, they could not have foreseen the legacy their partnership would create.Through the years they produced quality cruising and racing vessels. By the early '80s, C&C had established itself at the forefront of the sailing industry, from both sailing results and business standpoints. Its success on the racecourse continues today. Designed by Rob Ball, this is originally a Rhode Island boat. Pocho was purchased used in 2003 and sailed in 2004 to the Hudson River and then in 2005 was sailed through the Great Lakes by a gentleman who unexpectedly passed away in 2008. She now has been recently commissioned in the water on Lake Superior. She sleeps 7-8 crew/family members in a cabin with full standing headroom and new upholstery.  Practically everything on this boat, in terms of equipment, has been replaced and is new, but there is a some unfinished work to be done and most of it is straight forward. The engine was rebuilt in 2004 and new mounts added. The starter and water pump were also replaced. The strut was rebedded and the cutlass bearing replaced as was the prop (but now is missing). The transmission seals are new. Shift cables were tended to. Misc hoses replaced as needed. There is a new control panel and wiring. The fuel tank has been cleaned and new filters added. She runs extremely well.  All the bright work has ten coats of varnish.  The teak interior is quite beautiful.  The mast is now unstepped and the boat is on the hard. The fresh water system has been plumbed and works with the exception of the manual pump which is a minor fix. The head works well and is plumbed.  All of the photos are before the most recent work has been completed. More up to date photos will come soon. There is teak and holly flooring in the cabin, but the photos do not show them.  In 2001 Pocho won the Heinechen Regatta in Sint. Maarten. The owners of this boat have both passed and the surviving family is anxious to sell her quickly.  So, offers will be considered.

Hello, my name is Bill Hooper. I have been in the sailboat business for over 30 years and started in the service repair end and moved into sales. So, I have a good understanding of systems and how to evaluate most everything dealing with the vessel. In addition I have been sailing and racing boats for all those years and so understand the needs of various sailing venues from inland dinghies to offshore salt water passage making and most anything in between. I have a great knowledge base involving most anything with sailing and can help you sort out the differences and what is important in a boat used for different purposes and in different sailing areas.
