RE: Sea Ranger 47

Superdiver, check this site for teak veneer

http://www.oakwoodveneer.com/veneer/teak.html

The product comes in 4x8 sheets, rolled and boxed. Ships UPS, light and fairly inexpensive shipping cost. A 4x8 sheet of 10 mil quartered veneer is about $140. The heavy backing makes the veneer very forgiving, doesn't require perfection in the underlying surface. Easy to patch and replace damaged veneer.

RE: Sea Ranger 47

Hi, I bought a C-kip 40ft in England a few years ago. I understand that all C-kips were sold though Kip marina in Inverkip Scotland and all C&L's imported there were called C-kip. I did visit that marina and test drive another C-kip there by the way, but the origainal owner of the marina had long passed away.

I found his quote on a CHB Yahoo forum:

"*I've owned a 1979 C&L 44 tri-cabin for 8 years, and believe the C&L yachts*more closely resemble the Marine Trader family than the CHBs, but they areall cousins built in Taiwan. I read in Passagemaker magazine several yearsago that the L in C&L was Alexander Lee, who became a part of Ocean*Alexander in the early 80's".

I have read b4 somewhere about this Ocean Alexander guy being the foreman at C&L B4 starting up at Ocean Alexander.*I have seen a number of Sea Ranger boats in Scotland/England but typicaly 38 footers. I I really like the looks of your boat.*The looks of the C-kips and Sea Rangers are very different.*I would also like to find out more about C&L.

Steven

RE: Sea Ranger 47

Hi, Just discovered this forum. We have a 1981 47' sea Ranger PH "Summertime" which we have had for 10 years.* Great boat.* We are uaually in SC or GA waters.*

She's in the yard now for some repairs and I discovered, after all these years, that the HIN on the boat doesn't agree with that on the documentation.* The boat number starts with "BYC" and the documents with "EYC".* Can any of you confirm that "BYC" is correct?* I have to convince the CG that we didn't steal her.

I hope things work out for you... as I have mentioned before, I haven't seen any other trawler in our price range that we would prefer!

Sea Ranger 47

Hi Srnavigator,

Glad to see another Sea Ranger owner join the forum. *There doesn't seem to be too many of us out there!

Our hull number is JCG47052H585... supposedly built by a C&L yard in Taiwan in1985 but I haven't been able to track down anything else regarding her documentation. *

Your Sea Ranger looks like ours with the three cabin layout... I keep wondering how many others exist. *I'd love to see more pictures if you have them and more info re your boats specs!

Right, it is the 3 cabin layout with stairs down to the master instead of stairs up to the fly bridge.* I'll post some pictures when I have time.

that's interesting..... sounds like no two Sea Rangers are the same ... from our pilothouse we have a set of stairs going down to the three cabins and another staircase going up to the flybridge....

looking forward to your pictures!

This brochure is the only info or original ad that I can find on the history of the C & L Sea Ranger. *

These are a few photos of our Sea Ranger.

RE: Sea Ranger 47

There was a Sea Ranger "fixer upper" for sale in Seattle a couple of years ago that I went and looked through. It was the same hull and deck as Delia Rosa, but the flybridge was set back, behind the PH roof, and the space under the pilot house was the engine room. It was powered by a pair of Volvo TAMD40s, @ 165 hp each. The ask then was under $100k, but I considered that to be double what it was then worth. It is no longer on the market.

I also looked at a Sea ranger 50, that was a 47 with a stretch. The Flybridge was behind the pilot house roof, not on top of it. There were a number of 47s that were stretched to 49, 50 and 51. All of the extra space was in the cockpit area, and made it a nice lounging area. Some had the roof extended too.

I read in a piece on the history of the Ocean Alex (recent PMM article?), that one of the founders was Alexander Chieu. An early (1998) PMM article on Trawlers from Taiwan mentioned C & L. I don't think there was an Alexander Lee moving from C&L to OA.

My C & L 44 was started earlier, at east the hull No ends in 78, but the first owner didn't get it delivered to Vancouver until March of 1980. The only build issues I have encountered are the sliding windows, which tend to leak into the plywood below the sill. At age 31, I am about to repair the last two. The first failures were evident when I bought her in 1994. The stained veneer below the repaired windows in the main cabin are now hidden behind new sheets of 1/4 teak that look like they belong.

RE: Sea Ranger 47

I remember seeing a couple of Sea Ranger 45's with the raised pilothouse and the set back flybridge that you mention. *One was on the west coast and one that we actually looked at in Florida. *They both had a huge area under the pilothouse for the engine room and consequently, only had two cabins - the master vee forward and one on the port or starbord side, I can't quite remember. *

We eventually purchased our 47 which has the three berth layout, the master being under the pilot house. *I have never seen a 47 with the set back flybridge.... I wish I could find more owners to see the various configurations! *I have not seen any two alike so far...

As to pricing, ours was in reasonably good shape, merritting a higher price.... others perhaps not. *We have had a few issues with the teak lifting at a couple of seams, and although the source of the problem has been fixed, we haven't yet done the teak repair... did you have any lifting seams that you needed to repair before you covered over the stained teak? *I would love to see and hear more about the repairs you have done.

*

RE: Sea Ranger 47

If you search my earlier posts you will find my swimgrid extension, from about 21 in deep to 34".

I have recently redone the galley counters with granite, added quilted Stainless panelling behind the diesel stove and flat SS on the fridge.

The windows, I removed the inside frame, then the track and glass, cleaned out the wet wood, repacing as needed, but making sure there was no exposed plywood, covered with epoxy, then new tracks and put it all back together. The wet veneer is never going to come back, and knowing that, I destroyed the stained parts, to get behind it to the wet plywood and make sure it was all gone. Then, due to the now uneven surface, a sheet of 1/4 in teak over the whole piece, from the floor (Port side, saloon) or shelf (Stb side, saloon) or edging (bedroom, port side). I haven't done the head or Stb side, bedroom, but hope to soon. Getting the cut of the top of the replacement teak to fit tight to the frame around the window was the biggest challenge.

We had a wonderful trip bringing her home from New Hampshire where we purchased her.... down the Atlantic coast to New York, then up the Hudson and through the New York Canal system to Lake Ontario. We are Canadian but we keep her in Wilson New York (on Lake Ontario) during the summer.
She makes a great cruiser as well as a comfortable live aboard!

We admired your boat for sale when we bought our "Fu Hwa" in January, the west coast/east coast problem kept us from looking further. We lucked out, love our girl, thank god for a crappy economy we got her for a lovely price. Like the Sea Ranger that began the thread, she was clean, well kept and suited us in every way. After months of late night surfing "boat porn" I can't seem to stop but find there is no other boat out there that suits me more. For every pot there is a lid my mother always said and China Doll will find her mate.

I know that there don't seem to be too many out there, but there must be some kind of historical site that one could access. We love our trawler and it would just be great to be in touch with other owners!

regards,

Any of you Sea Ranger owners that would know of some one looking for a nice trawler, we are trying to sell our 47' Pilothouse Sea Ranger, 1980 model.
We are stuck in San Diego, and can't get back up north for a while. Any help would be great.

Waterline Length is 14.3m and has twin Ford Sabres 120s
