about the boat's sailing characteristics.
I almost bought one but the only one available in my price
range had a strange layout for cruising, no chart table but bunk beds in the walk through.
Many C&Cs were fast cruisers or racer
cruisers. The Landfall 42 I would call a fast cruiser but it is an older design and not as fast as many newer boats. It has a moderate draft
, modified fin keel
so points reasonably well but again, not like a racer
They also came with rod rigging
. A little less weight aloft but I'm more familiar with wire and wire fittings.
