coronado 41

Hello all
As some of you might remember I am in a catalina 30, As I am watching the days slip away and trying to meet my self given deadline when I am supposed to head out the bay and turn left and never come back, I realize I need more boat. I have stuck a fancy to the coronado 41's. Prices are quite reasonable and the space the offer is perfect. These are the center cockpit sloops. I am not a huge fan of center cockpits, but the room offerd inside is wonderful. Also they are quite heavy. I am just looking for you alls enlightend opinions of these boats.
Thanks
D.

From what I understand, they are really not for offshore. They are known to be slow and roll a lot. Good liveaboard though.

Here's some articals that might interest you.

D,
We too have been looking at larger boats (signed on the dotted line for a 36'er yesterday) and saw a 41' Coronado, online. First things first, the Coronado 35 was a center cockpit, but was my understanding that the 41 was an aft cockpit, and the better sailing of the 2 models. Anyhow ... the ad for the 41 that I looked at was quite interesting. There must have been 30 photos of a truly great looking interior ... wow! All that space and nicely decorated too! Then buried in the text was "30 to 40% delamination below the waterline" not even sure why I continued to read about it after that, but in the last few lines they mention (as though it was an afterthought) "the owner reports some soft spots in deck" .... YIKES! This is gonna be the epitome of what is known as "a hole in the water" for someone ..
