The C-Scow is a 20 ft (6.1 m) member of the scow family. Like the MC, it is cat-rigged but requires two or three people to sail. Like the MC, it has bilgeboards but only one rudder.
Although the current boat is one-design, the original class had several boats that fit within a box rule. The first scantlings for the class were developed in 1906, making the class 100 years old in 2006.
The C-scow has spent most of its life as a small lake boat in the upper midwest. However, recent strong marketing efforts through its maker, Melges Performance Sailboats, has grown the fleet across the nation.
