Heather, if Gord's memory is beginning to fail him, it is only because he has forgotten more than most of us will ever know. I have never owned a C&C 29, but have had a friend who did and can at least give the following snapshot: well constructed, attractive, well balanced, decent performance (although less oriented to performance than some of C&C's other designs), good quality hardware
layout. As to criticisms, all I can recall
hearing is that the v-berth was a trifle short and that the coachouse portlights
can be very difficult to replace (use bedding compound only).
