C&C 36 CB 1979

Well another week and another boat we fell in love with. For our Caribbean getaway live-aboard sailboat, we had 3 choices, an Ontario 32, a CS36T and a C&C 36 CB.

All with different characteristics, each where a unique set of pros and cons..

A CS36T, Wall's best design IMHO, is built like a battle tank, great galley , head and superb sailing qualities and also good tanks, is quite expensive. People who are selling these boats in need of repair are asking high dollar.

The Ontario 32 is a smaller built tank designed by Cutherberson is a nice boat, we had fun sailing one and she is very forgiving.. Long story short wife finds to small, so off the list it comes (I liked the O32 alot)

So here is a C&C 36 centre board.. C&C built , good quality , Owner has redone the hull (Blisters) and deck , worked carried out by reputable boat yard. Good workmanship, newer engine, and Navtec Rod rigging.

I never sailed one, and have no idea how she performs.. or what issue should I keep an eye out for.

If anyone can give me some feedback on her sailing characteristics, I would surely appreciate..
