C & L Searanger owners

Dear all
I am the proud owner of my second C & L Searanger (A 1979 45' Pilot house)
I am in the process of restoring the vessel fully, over some time of course.
I absolutely love the boat and keen to get into discussion with other owners to Share my experiences during the restoration process.
I have had quite a number of boats , mostly trawlers with one exception being a 56' Vetec Sports fisher. I did own a custom 1984 C & L Searanger 65, of which I also loved, however as you can imagine it was quite a hand full, My current 45' Pilot house is just right. still a lot of work , however I love it. I have experience in the marine industry, which helps, never the less I love hearing from other boat owners their experiences.
I look forward to hearing from you all
Bets for the New Year! John G

Hi John, welcome to the forum! Congratulations on your new boat! Very rewarding to do a restoration / refit project.


I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

I've recently aquired a C&L 37, which is our first large power boat. So far, so good.

We're making the jump from sail to power, to the abhorrent shock of most of my sailing friends, and the delight of my non-sailing ones. Congratulations on your purchase.

I have not ran across many Sea Rangers but they seem to be stout and well made. Has anyone out there ran their 45+ in rough seas?

John, I'm very interested in your progress with your Sea Ranger. I am considering the purchase of a 45' PH Sea Ranger that has some problems per the survey. I, too, have professional experience in the industry and would benefit from hearing from you. Can we have an update?
